Mango Cheesecake Freeze

Developed by our Health Nut and Registered Dietitian, Molly Morgan, this mango cheesecake freeze is a healthy way to enjoy a sweet treat! It’s refreshing, delicious, and can be made in a jiffy. The perfect treat for summer.

The base of the recipe is simply frozen mangoes and almond milk. Mangoes are rich in vitamins A and C, and retain high levels of these nutrients even when frozen. Combined with almond milk, the mango mixture is creamy and delicious, with a naturally sweet and vibrant tropical flavor.

For the next layer, you’ll need kefir, ice, vanilla yogurt, the remaining almond milk, and a dash of cinnamon. Kefir and yogurt are probiotic superstars! They provide an abundant source of probiotics, the beneficial bacteria that are essential to a healthy digestive system.
