It never got above 40 degrees yesterday, yet my mind kept telling me:
“Katie, you want ice cream.”
I do? But it’s cold and gray and I’m wearing fleece. Are you sure?
“You want ice cream.” Well, okay. If you say so.
Y’know what goes well with ice cream? Breakfast Pizzerts!
So, at the urging of my insistent mind, I made one. And while the pizzert did its thing in the oven, Monsieur Vita-Mix ventured out from his hibernation slumber for some rigorous exercise: making ice cream! Or rather, mango faux-yo. Here’s how it played out:
Mucho Mango Faux-Yo
(makes 2 huge portions)
- 2 yellow mangos (240g)
- ice (I use 7 1/2-moon cubes)
- scant 1/16th tsp salt
- a little over 2 tbsp milk of choice
Blend all ingredients in the Vita-Mix. Remember to utilize the useful Vita-Mix Ice Cream Trick.
I think the mango is my newest-favorite of the many “Faux-Yo” Flavors.
Although chocolate-strawberry will always have a place in my heart. Oh, and chocolate-cherry too. And blueberry. Indecisive? Me?
Going back to September…
Although my birthday dessert-of-choice was Raw Key Lime Pie, there weren’t candles at the party. Therefore we sang later that night, at home, when I ate my nighttime snack of mango faux-yo.
Just imagine me yelling to my family, “Hurry up and sing before my ice cream melts!!” Luckily, it didn’t melt, and it tasted delicious. It’s still difficult for me to believe that I hated mangoes until I moved to The Philippines for a year in high school. Thank goodness that tropical country shook me out of my crazy ways.
