If a sundae and frappe had a baby…

IMG_1860 This is as pretty as it tastes and it takes but a few moments to make. Perfect to beat the summer afternoon heat or even as a tempting dessert.

Whole foods are not just salads. Whole foods can be used to make over almost anything that you enjoy to make a version that sustains energy, treats your body with respect, nourishes your cells and strengthens you over time.


This recipe is a bit like a creamy soft serve ice cream on the bottom with a raspberry slushy poured over the top. The smooth mango bottom layer is punched with the strong raspberry flavour on top and each bite tastes slightly different from the next. We are using mangos for the bottom but you could play around with bananas, stone fruit, berries or even a take on frozen yogurt by adding a plain yogurt and some natural vanilla. The top layer could also be any kind of fruit with minor adjustments of the lemon and honey depending on the flavours you choose.


The vibrancy of the colours and flavours in this treat are a great reminder that nature gives us all the colour and flavour that we need.  No need for "natural or artificial colours/flavours" and definitely not a place for refined sweeteners or fillers of any kind.  What a treat to be proud of!

Sundae/Frappe Deliciousness Makes 4 glasses

bottom layer: 2 cups frozen mango small can (125mL) full fat coconut milk 1/2 cup water 2 TBSP  honey juice of one fresh lemon

top layer: 2 cups frozen raspberries 1 cup water 2 TBSP  honey juice of one fresh lemon

In a high speed blender, blend the ingredients for the bottom layer until smooth. If you don't have a high speed blender, you might need a bit more water and you could end up with more of a smoothie rather than something to eat with a spoon. Super yummy either way! Pour/spoon the bottom layer into 4 glasses. It looks prettiest if the layer isn't level so keep it all crooked.

Don't worry about rinsing the blender and put in all of the ingredients for the top layer and blend until smooth. Pour over the bottom layer into each of the glasses. To lightly combine the layers, stick a spoon down the sides and pull it up in a few places. Enjoy getting a bit of each layer on each spoonful or slurp it up a straw. Enjoy!
