Creamy Cashew Banana Mango Pudding
This dairy-free pudding may be the most delicious thing to pass your lips this week! It’s sweetened only with fruit (banana + mango, for tropical flavor), and incredibly creamy, thanks to beauty mineral-rich cashews that nourish your hair and skin. If you don’t have mango on hand, double the amount of ripe banana and add a bit more non-dairy milk to blend up an equally sweet and skin-friendly treat.
Serves 2 to 3
- 1 cup raw cashews or cashew pieces, soaked in water for at least 4 hours, drained and rinsed
- 1 small ripe banana (or 1/2 large banana)
- 1 cup ripe mango chunks, plus more for serving
- 1 to 3 Tbsp unsweetened non-dairy milk, as needed
- unrefined salt
In a high-powered blender, combine cashews, banana, and mango until smooth and creamy, pausing frequently to scrape down the sides of the blender. Add a pinch of salt to taste, and (if needed) non-dairy milk, one Tbsp at a time, to thin the pudding. Blend once more to incorporate. If desired, top with fruit or dust with an antioxidant-rich topping like raw cacao, maca root, or cinnamon. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
