Mango and Raspberry Vegan Crumble

Mango and Raspberry Crumble

If a date doesn’t appreciate my food puns, I’m going to have to let the mango! Couldn’t resist a crumble food pun!

This mango and raspberry vegan crumble is sure to be your go-to sweet treat for summer. The crumble is low in sugar and high in flavor. The recipe is also versatile for every season. As in-season fruits change, you can swap out the mango and raspberry for peaches, apples, blueberries…really any fruit you’d like. The base recipe will stay the same regardless!

It Take Two to Mango

Before this year, I hadn’t ever baked with mango. The fruit was never on my radar to pick up while out shopping. Dried mango was just a delicious snack for road trips. That all changed when I started receiving Misfits Market boxes every month. Misfits Market is an online grocer that offers affordable ingredients and reduces food waste. Feel free to follow the link and use my referral code for $10 off your first shipment. (Please note that I receive a credit for every new subscriber).

Mango is the national fruit of India and found in tropical and warm climates. There are over one hundred variants of mango. The fruit is generally sweet and has a soft, pulpy texture. Mango is perfect in chutneys, drinks, as well as dessert dishes. Some variants of mango are also used in savory dishes.

Baking with Mango

For this recipe, I decided to try my hand at baking with fresh Tommy Atkins mango. However, other variants would work and so would frozen diced mango. The Tommy Atkins variant is not considered the sweetest, it has a long shelf-life and does not bruise easily. With the subtle sweetness of the mango , the tartness of the raspberry really elevates this recipe and adds the natural sweetness.
