Banana mango dessert

Looking for a cold vegan treat to satisfy your sweet tooth without feeling guilty? I have found the easiest dessert. And if you are lucky enough to have a lot of mango this summer, here is a great way to use it.

I don’t have a large sweet tooth, but when I heard about the banana mango dessert, was craving sweets. Not too sweet, not to tart, cold and creamy (without dairy), it’s the perfect simple summer snack. I say dessert because I don’t know what else to call it. It’s not ice cream, not yogurt, not sorbet. You decide.

Banana mango dessert

Serves 2

Put a frozen banana (peel it, cut it into about six pieces, put in a freezer bag and freeze), a room temperature banana in chunks and one cup frozen cubed mango into a food processor.

Place all items in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Put into a bowl and enjoy. Warning: It melts fast, but the trick is to eat faster!

I’m thinking other frozen fruit could work as well, though both the banana and mango have a natural creaminess to them. If you try this or another combination, I would love to hear how it worked and what you thought.

  1. I’m not a vegan (quite the opposite, actually!) but I love frozen banana “ice-cream”.

    Sometimes I add little peanut butter, other times I add a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg.

    I tried it with strawberries once, and it was ok. Best part is that it needs NO sugar!

    I’ll have to try it with the mangos, though!
