2 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tbsp caster sugar

How do I make it?
Place gelatine leaves in a bowl and cover with cold water. Leave to soak for 10 minutes.
Heat cream and coconut milk in a saucepan to just below boiling point. Add sugar and whisk until dissolved.
Drain gelatine leaves and squeeze out excess water. Add to hot cream mixture and stir until completely dissolved.
Lightly grease 6 x 150 mL dariole moulds or ramekins with coconut oil. Divide cream mixture between the ramekins and set aside to cool. When cool cover loosely with clingfilm and refrigerate overnight to set.
Prepare Mango Coulis by peeling and cutting the flesh from the mangoes. Roughly chop the mango, then blend it in a food processor with lime juice and sugar until smooth. Pass purée through a fine sieve into a bowl. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Prepare Caramelised Mango by heating barbecue or grill pan over high heat. Melt coconut oil and toss mango slices in melted oil. Place mango on grill and cook for 2-3 minutes or until lightly charred. Sprinkle over sugar and cook for a further minute or until caramelised.
To serve, dip the base of each ramekin in hot water to loosen the pannacotta, then invert onto serving plates. Spoon Mango Coulis onto the plates and add Caramelised Mango. Top pannacotta with toasted coconut flakes and chopped mint.
