Mango & "Cream"… Heaven in a Bowl

+

+


Step 1
Chop the mango into 1/2-inch pieces. Lovingly place 1/2 cup of the mango in a pretty bowl.

Step 2
Pour 1/4 cup of coconut milk over the mango. (I used reduced-fat coconut milk ’cause that means I can also eat almonds and avocados and olive oil in the same meal. Multiple healthy fat sources makes for a happy girl. You do what you like.)

Step 3
Sprinkle a few pinches of unsweetened, all-natural, no-crap, not-poison-processed coconut on top. (I’ve considered making my coconut shreds different colors to mimic the sprinkles on a donut. I just might do it and post a photo this week!)

Step 4
Place the bowl in the refrigerator while you eat dinner and allow the fruit to chillax for about 15-20 minutes.

Step 5

Eat your dessert slowly and indulgently with a spoon. Lick the bowl.

Very finely chop unsalted almonds or macadamia nuts and sprinkle on top when you take the bowl out of the fridge. Tastes decadent! But it’s soooooooo good for you.

Try strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, pineapple, or… this is bold, people… a mix of fruits. YUMMM-EEEE.

A word of caution: It’s easy to OD on fruit and coconut milk. Tastes like dessert! So even if you’re usually an eye-baller, you might want to actually measure this one. Go with about 1/2 cup of fruit (Unless it’s strawberries; then you get a whole cup.) with 1/4 cup coconut milk. This will give you all of the enjoyment will keep your ass off the express train Sugarland (with stops in Crankytown, Guilt-ville, and Carb Crash City).

  2. Melicious says:

    Mango Sticky Rice was the inspiration… and also how I sold the idea to Dave. "It's like sticky rice, with the rice!"

    I did this with fresh blueberries.. OMG

    tonight i pureed some frozen mango, folded it into some chilled coconut milk, then put it into my soft-serve ice cream maker… pure heaven and no added sugars.

    I just found you through PaleOMG (Paleo Fig Fudge Balls are on my to do list) and after nosing around I found this! Living in Tropical North Queensland, Australia its mango season and on Xmas Eve I brought a tray of them, sliced them, placed on baking trays in freezer and once frozen transferred to containers to snack on as an when required. Am now on my way out to buy coconut milk – this looks so yummy and I have been trying to find new snack/dessert ideas.

    I love your site! I sorta stole this idea and ran with it. I made the coconut milk into a whipped cream, macerated some strawberries with mint and folded it into the cream. then put it on mango. then I almost died of delish overdose. the next night? I put it on grilled peaches. Yeah I know. I have a stash in the freezer right now to see if I can pull of some sort of frozen treat as well.

    Just found this and gonna give it a try. Way way back in my vegan days i used to make mango mousse with pureed mango and melted coconut butter. All mixed up and put in the fridge to set.

    Is there any way to pose a private question/comment to you, which is not broadcast to all your fans/subscribers?

    Thank you,
