Mangoes always remind me of Summer. As soon as they hit stores, you know the season of bikinis, tanned skin, cold fruits and sweltering days is in full swing! As they are a high fodmap food, I can’t enjoy them as often as I did when I was little. But I couldn’t help myself when it came to the idea of a no-bake mango cheesecake!
No need for a jar of lollies when you have a glass full of these protein balls. Loaded with goodies that are perfect for a post workout treat or afternoon snack. cacao nibs for an energy boost, nuts to keep you feeling satisfied, protein from quinoa and your choice of protein powder to repair your muscles, omega-3 for your joints, potassium, and a little salt for an electrolyte boost, and natural sugar in the form of honey or maple syrup to replenish your muscle glycogen stores (aka. extend the ‘pump’ and get you ready for your next session).
A deliciously thick and creamy yoghurt for those avoiding dairy. It can be vegan depending on the culture starter source.
These cookies are very addictive. They do contain a bit of sugar so it’s best to keep them for a special treat, however, the sweetness does come from healthier, nourishing sources, making them much better for you than the traditional ginger snaps.
