Mango, lime & coconut puddings

mango lime and coconut pudding

I’m holding onto the last bits of the warm weather and  these puddings taste light, tropical and refreshing. The light-coloured agave nectar keeps these a pretty, light yellow and the blended cashews and coconut oil give the mango a creaminess and pudding-like texture without the calories and associated nasties in cream, sugar and gelatine.

MANGO, LIME & COCONUT PUDDINGS

2 MANGOES, PEELED & DICED (RESERVE A FEW CUBES FOR DECORATION)
1/2 CUP CASHEWS, SOAKED IN WATER FOR A FEW HOURS
1/2 TEASPOON LIME ZEST
1 LIME, JUICED
1 TABLESPOON LIGHT AGAVE NECTAR
1 TABLESPOON COCONUT OIL

LIME SLICES & CUBED MANGO PIECES

Strain the water from the cashews. Blend these with the mangoes, lime zest, lime juice and agave nectar in a food processor or blender until smooth. Finally, add the coconut oil in last. I don’t know why, but this seems to give it a smoother texture. Pour into small bowls (I made three), cover and refrigerate for three hours or overnight. Top with a slice of lime and cubed mango before serving.

      Definitely give them a try Haley; super easy.

      And there’s not too much cashews and coconut oil in comparison to the mango so it tastes a bit lighter than usual raw desserts, (sometimes I get a bit off-put by too much coconut oil heaviness).
