You can substitute fresh peaches for the mangoes in this recipe. Or, if you can find them, use the traditional English ingredient: fresh gooseberries. Read more about no-bake summertime desserts in Keri Fisher's article "Chill out."
A food processor works well for puréeing the fruit. Culinate editor's note: Unless you have very sweet gooseberries good for eating out of hand, you'll need to turn fresh gooseberries into a sweetened purée. Slice the tops and tails off the berries and halve the berries lengthwise, then cook them down with a little sugar for about 20 minutes. Chill the purée before folding it into the whipped cream for the classic English dessert mentioned in the introduction: gooseberry fool.
