It comes together as quickly as a smoothie and has become a family favourite in our home. Mango is a good source of vitamin A, which benefits our eyes, skin and respiratory system, so enjoy this recipe knowing that it is healthy and delightful.
1⁄3 cup cold water
2 tablespoons gelatin powder
1 can (14 ounces) full-fat coconut milk
2 cups fresh or thawed frozen mango chunks (about 2⁄3 pound)
Pinch of unrefined pink salt
1/8 teaspoon pure monk fruit extract
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Optional Toppings (use as many as you like)
Fresh mango, thinly sliced
Unsweetened flaked or shredded coconut
1. Combine the water, gelatin and coconut milk in a blender or high-speed blender and blend well.
2. Add the mango and blend until very smooth. If you are using a high-speed blender, you do not need to thaw the mango completely. Add the salt, monk fruit and vanilla, if using.
3. Divide the mixture evenly among six ½-cup mason jars. Top with the desired toppings, cover and chill until set, about 1 hour. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 10 days.
Makes 6 servings.
