Mango Coyo Cake
Mangoes are just the most divine fruit and we are blessed with the best up here in Queensland. They are only available for such a small period of time; we really do need to make the most of them. This perfect summer dessert is gluten-free, vegan and refined sugar-free.
Plus, it is a goer for the majority of dietary restrictions and full of nutritious wholesome ingredients. Instead of coconut cream, silky smooth, super creamy Coyo yoghurt has been used in this dessert. Adding plenty of plant-powered probiotics and providing beneficial bacteria. This cake can be made ahead of time and kept in the freezer until ready to use, making it perfect to plan ahead for Christmas events. Also, it can be made into individual serves or two small cakes. This dessert is fantastic for hot summer days!
