Mango Cashew Kulfi- vegan, sugar free

 
This "creamy" golden dessert is a healthy treat!
Happy Gaura Purnima (appearance day of Caitanya Mahaprabhu) and Holi Hai to you all! This dessert is a great way to celebrate today, and suitable for those following a farali (no grains) fast. What better way to welcome in Spring than with juicy mangoes, which will soon be ripening all over India? To celebrate the birthday of the Golden Avatar, this kulfi as beautifully-coloured as His complexion.
 So how can you have kulfi without dairy? -Well, according to Wikipedia, what really sets kulfi apart from regular icecream is that it is not whipped and therefore very dense and rich. This cashew-based dessert is not whipped either, so we think it can be classed as kulfi. The recipe is very simple, but you do need a food processor/ blender/ grinder for grinding and pureeing. This makes about 700g of kulfi, enough for about 5 people.

200g cashew pieces (unsalted)
500g diced fresh ripe mango flesh

  • Grind the cashews to a fine powder; as fine as possible so as to achieve a smooth end result.
  • Add the diced mango and blend to a puree.
  • Put into a tub or bowl and freeze.
