Vegan Mango Frozen “Latte”

Vegan Mango Frozen Latte by An Unrefined Vegan Clearly I’m taking liberties here with the term latte – but since I’m vegan, I’m comfortable taking all kinds of liberties with food terms like “cheese,” “chik’n,” “meringue,” “omelet,” etc. In this cooling frozen latte, that creamy layer on top isn’t foamed milk, it’s cashew cream (is there anything better, really?) – and it adds richness to the fruity mango beneath it. Mangoes are plentiful right now so Kel and I are eating them to beat the band – and also freezing slices for future snowy-day smoothies. Winter isn’t THAT far off! Mango (nutritional) Madness!:

  • Soft and creamy as they are, mangoes have about 3 grams of fiber per cup, helping to keep you all regular-like.
  • Get about 35% of your daily Vitamin A (good for eye and bone health) needs with one sweet cup of juicy mangoes.
  • That one cup of mango also provides you with 76% of your daily Vitamin C, too!

    Are those little bees on the side of the glass? I bought one like that for my dad because he admired it when his juice was served in one in a cafe. I wish I liked mangoes. They’re the one fruit I can think of that I really don’t like. I love the colour of them though, and this drink looks beautiful with the cashew cream foam on top.

      Yes! I love these glasses! What is it about mangoes that you don’t like? I love the flavor, but notice that some fruit has a chalkiness to it that I don’t like. Happily when it’s all joojed in a blender it’s not noticeable.

        It’s the flavour I don’t like, I don’t know why. I first tasted them in Pakistan fresh off a tree and perfectly ripe, so it’s kind of strange that I don’t like them. It’s a great pity because I often see juices that look lovely with mango in them, and every now and then I try again but it’s never good.
