Mango and passion fruit must be my top 2 favourite fruits! So I was really keen to get them in a raw dessert together. Adding a bit of coconut rounds out the Caribbean influenced flavours really nicely. This is a dessert to be savoured.
I'm in the UK for the summer, and discovery are one of the first apple varieties to come into season. They are so much fun because their flesh is tinged pink! My boyfriend's tree is providing us with loads of them, so I came up with this. It's simple, just sweetened with dates and really tasty.
Of course, you could use any type of apple, but the tarter the better!
To my delight, this shake is more vanilla than banana. I made this to cure a craving my husband was having. I think one of the keys is to use a less ripe frozen banana. The less ripe the less banana flavor. This recipe was the answer to my previously SAD eater husband when he told me he was REALLY craving a vanilla milkshake. It's not just delicious, it also provides great energy and usable protein! Check out other recipes at http://reneegoesraw.wordpress.com/
