Vanilla & Mango whipped “cream” with berries


Having gotten home quite late, I needed to eat something before bed but I didn’t want anything to filling as it’s not good for your body to go to bed on a full stomach. I decided to make a superfood snack with some random ingredients and goodness, can I just tell you how amazing it came out?! This was a total mistake, but a delicious one at that, so naturally I had to share this tastiness with you. It’s very, very simple to make and is the perfect bedtime snack, dessert, or pick me up in the day.


  • Blender or food processor
  • 1 banana
  • 4 Brazil nuts
  • 1/4 cup mango coconut water (original is fine too)
  • 1 scoop of Sunwarrior vanilla protein powder (you could use whey if you wish, I recommend vegan powders though).
  • Optional add-ons: fresh berries, mango, cacao nibs


  1. Mix your banana, brazil nuts, coconut water, and protein powder for a few minutes in your blender or food processor. Once it has formed a thick ‘whipping’ cream it’s finished. For extra creaminess, add some frozen mango or freeze your banana prior.
  2. I put the “cream” over frozen mango, mixed berries, added a few more brazil nuts and topped with raw cacao nibs.

How easy was that?! Sometimes our best recipes come from mistakes, which is the thing I love about cooking. So why is this such a decadently beautiful meal to nourish you?

– Brazil nuts are high in the B vitamins, which provide energy for the body as well as selenium that helps fight free radicals andIMG_7408 boost the immune system.

– Mangos help clear the skin and fight acne, have high fiber levels and vitamin C, which lowers cholesterol.

– Bananas have high levels of tryptophan, which is converted into seratonin, (the happy-mood brain neurotransmitter) and can help battle depression.

– Coconut water has higher levels of potassium than bananas, which aid in muscle recovery, and is extremely hydrating.

– Cacao nibs are high in magnesium, which promotes strong bones, helps decrease depression and boost your immune system.
