I am sorry I have not been too active during the last 10 days, but a monstrous cold, night classes and work have prevented me from writing. Anyways, as I was sick, I was looking for and craving sweet refreshing snacks to munch on while still providing me with some vitamin C. I also wanted to experiment with my lovely Magic Bullet (and no, they are not paying me, their device is just awesome). I came up with this! It is super simple, very tasty and packed with vitamin C! It would make a lovely summer treat as well.
Here is what you’ll need:
– 2 cups frozen diced mangoes
– 4 cardamon pods
– 1 piece of cinnamon stick (about 3 cm long)
– 5 peppercorns
– 4 cloves
– 1/4 cup boiling water
– 1/2 soy milk
– 2 tsp of maple syrup
Here is what you need to do:
– Let the spices (cardamon, cinnamon, peppercorn and cloves) infuse in the water for about 10 minutes. Let your mangoes slightly defrost during that time as well.
– After 10 minutes, drain and keep the water. Put it in the blender with all the ingredients. If the mangoes don’t fit, just add them little by little.
– Blend away!
This is amazing! It has the consistency of a soft serve/gelato ice cream. It is super yummy and packed with vitamins. What else could you ask for?
I’ll try this out with coconut almond milk next time; I’m thinking the coconut will go perfectly with the mango… 🙂
Stay tuned for an exciting project coming up this week-end 🙂 and let us know if you try it out!
