Strawberry-Mango Fruit Ice

I'm sure some of you will laugh when I say that it was hot here this week. It was 80 degrees for 24 hours - that was it. So what did I do? I unpacked all of our summer clothes, kept the kitchen window open all night, pulled out the baby pool, and made this strawberry-mango fruit ice.

I just want to make sure summer knows I'm ready to welcome her warm nights, white jeans, shirtless toddler boys, and icy cold desserts. Bring it. If there is anything a Northeastern girl is good at it's anticipating summer.


















Strawberry-Mango Fruit Ice

1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
1 mango
1 cup vanilla almond milk (or soy, hemp, rice)
1/3 cup silken tofu (you can't taste it, makes it creamy)
juice from a 1/4 of an orange
splash of vanilla extract

sliced almonds
unsweetened coconut

Simple - put everything in the food processor and wizz around. Pour into a freezer safe container and freeze. The ice will be very hard so let it sit on the counter before scooping or freeze in a shallow dish for easier serving.



Toast almonds and coconut in a dry pan until slightly golden. Top fruit ice and eat in front of an open window between breaks of playing purple plastic guitar.
