Set aside to cool completely.
  2. Brush the slices with some of the glaze and let stand 10 minutes. Spray a nonstick ridged grill pan with nonstick spray and set overmedium-high heat. Add the mango slices and grill, turning occasionally, over medium-low heat, until browned and nicely marked, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Place two mango slices in each of 4 dessert bowls. Top each serving with 1 scoop ice cream, 2 tablespoons of the toasted coconut, and 1 tablespoon of the almonds; top with additional mango slices. Drizzle each with the remaining glaze. Serve with the lime wedges.
