Baked Mango and Cardamom Cream


Mango is known in Ayurveda as the “king of fruits” and has been around for about 6000 years. In ancient India, princes and kings used to pride themselves on possession of a mango gardens. They are rich in antioxidants, Vitamin C and beta-carotene. They are good source of potassium and their fibre helps in easier elimination and some relief to constipation. They nourish all 7 tissues (dhatus) in Ayurveda, balance all three humours (doshas) and  are energizing. 

Baked mango makes a yummy healthy dessert and is simple to make.  Simply slice one mango and place it in an oven dish. Sprinkle with cinnamon and put a little filtered water in the bottom of the dish. Bake for approximately 15 minutes in a pre-heated oven, gas mark 6. Whilst the mango is baking, please take one small tin of coconut cream and blend with a tablespoon of natural sweetener such as rice malt or agave syrup or coconut sugar, and one teaspoon of ground cardamom powder.

If you are not vegan, you can use a tablespoon of butter instead of water to cook the mango and also use a tablespoon of honey in the coconut cream as a sweetener.
