1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
1 (8-ounce) container plain yogurt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 ripe mango, pitted, peeled and mashed
2 ripe bananas, mashed

Garnish: toasted coconut
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
3 3/4 cups powdered sugar


In a large bowl, blend margarine and sugar; add eggs, yogurt and vanilla. Sift together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to margarine mixture. Stir in mango, bananas and coconut. Spread into a 15"x10" jelly-roll pan that has been sprayed with non-stick vegetable spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely. Spread frosting over top; sprinkle with toasted coconut, if desired. Store in refrigerator. Cut into bars to serve.

Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla together in a large bowl. Gradually beat in powdered sugar to a smooth consistency. Stir in coconut.

Tip: Plant thyme between the stones in your walkway for a sweet fragrance you’ll notice with each step you take.
