Vegan Mango Lime Fro-Yo

This Vegan Mango Lime Fro-Yo is made using just three ingredients. If you can get hold of Alphonso mangos then your frozen yoghurt will be the sweetest, most fragrant and refreshing treat you’ll make this summer.

Vegan Mango Lime Fro-Yo

When I was sixteen one of my close friends moved to Singapore with her family for a year. I seized on this opportunity to visit her during the school Easter holidays and had a brilliant time. But of all the things we did and experiences we had the three major memories about my trip are as follows.
1. How amazing the food was at the food court in the mall.
2. I had the worst sunburn of my life. Then the next day I went out and got sunburnt again. Ouchy.
3. The only cure for sunburn, according to my friend’s mother was plenty of aloe vera on the skin and lots of frozen mango in the tummy.

We would halve our mangos and put them in the freezer in the morning and when we returned from our gallivanting around the city we dug into our frozen mango halves with a spoon. At first they were rock solid but half way through the fruit would yield and become the most delicious and deserved treat after a day in the smoggy heat. In my mind there is no better respite from a muggy June in the city than copious amounts of frozen mango. But just to take it up a notch I have been treating us all these past couple of weeks to this easy Mango Lime Fro-Yo.

This Fro-Yo has just three ingredients and as such the quality of the ingredients really matters. Lately our local farmers’ market (Stroud Green Market – where you can usually find me behind my cake stall when I’m not on maternity leave) has had an Alphonso mango stall. Now in general Alphonso mangos are considered to be quite expensive but on my recent Ocado shop I was astounded how much they charged me for two rock hard, bland and pale regular mangos. The Alphonso mangos I bought from the farmers’ market were actually about a similar price, £7.99 for a box of six. Now the mangos might have been a little small but inside they harboured the most beautifully vibrant orange flesh and were the sweetest, creamiest and richest mangos I have ever tasted. When you are making a three ingredient mango fro-yo, these are the mangos you need. However, playing devil’s advocate, I also made this fro-yo using my regular Ocado mangos and another version with the packets of pre-frozen mango and all fro-yo iterations were still pretty fabulous so if you can’t get hold of Alphonso mangos then you can certainly make do and still be a happy bunny.

I am not vegan but chose to make this Mango Lime Fro-Yo vegan stylee because dairy and I don’t always get on so well. I don’t avoid it as such but if there is a recourse to switch it up without compromising on a recipe at all then I’m all for it. Plus using coconut yoghurt adds a little sweetness meaning that teamed with the luscious Alphonsos there is no need to add any extra sweetener.

The recipe is so simple, peel and de-stone your mangos, cutting the flesh into cubes. Place in the freezer overnight and then the next day blend it up with the limes and coconut yoghurt. You might need to really push the mixture down to the blender’s blades and scrape the sides often as there is not a lot of liquid in there. But really that’s all there is to it. I like it best straightaway out of the blender, it’s very scoopable and smooth. However, you can decant it and place the fro-yo into the freezer for a couple of hours to firm up a little. The longer you leave it in the freezer though the more icy it will become.

In our house every season is fro-yo season but it’s pretty exciting now we are dangerously entering summer territory and there is absolutely no excuse not to be eating homemade fro-yo.

SHOP THE RECIPE

The blender that I have been using these past seven months since Luke was kind enough to buy me one for my birthday is the Vitamix® Pro750 Food Blender, Copper UK Model. This blender is amazing! I loved the Kitchenaid blender I had before but my Vitamix produces the smoothest smoothies, most cohesive sauces and fantastic soups. I have been using it most frequently at the moment for making my iced matcha lattes and I now could not be without it. Okay, it isn’t cheap but if you have the budget for it and you are looking to be really spoilt then I really recommend it. Plus I love the colour!!
