We are getting tropical for summer with these Raw Mango Squares. This recipe is another adaptation from Naturally Sassy.. wiat this is the third recipe I post from her. I can’t stop it! Saskia’s recipes are very fun, nutritious, unique, different and delicious.

With this mango recipe, you are going to be ready for summer. I adapted the original recipe according to my preferences. I did not add the cocoa powder to the crust, instead I used vanilla. Second, if you prefer a stronger mango taste, you may use mango natural flavoring or extract.

I used a square pan to prepare the dessert and put the remaining batter in dessert cups. You may serve the dessert plain, with a side of vegan yogurt or topped it with fruits, nuts, seeds or a spread.

This raw dessert is very simple, fun and fast to prepare. Basically, what you need is a food processor, a square mold and a freezer.
