Healthy Frozen Mango Macadamia Bars

JUMP TO RECIPE

Did you know there are only 200 days in a mango season? It might seem like a lot, but when it’s during the holiday time and all you can think about is mangos; eating mangos and cooking with mangos the season seems to go far too quickly!

This HEALTHY FROZEN MANGO MACADAMIA BAR is one of my favourite ways to celebrate the best time of year – mango season!

It’s a bit of a Weiss Bar imposter… although I think the freshness of the fruit and the fact the white creamy stripy portion isn’t cream but macadamias makes it even more delicious. I used the nutty component from my recipe for Tropical Macadamia Bark here and added some melted cacao butter to the blend so it would hold well and it did!

Truthfully, I think the ratio of the bar is a little imbalanced and maybe there should be a bit more mango than white so if you’re doing so, either reduce the white component or pump up the mango a bit more – maybe by an extra 50%. You can play around, this recipe is super flexible, you actually can’t go too wrong with it no matter what you do so long as you have the key ingredients.

This recipe is gluten free, dairy free, paleo, vegetarian & has a vegan option.
