mango tarragon frappe

mango tarragon frappe
One of my all time indulgences is ice cream- prior to becoming vegan I use to make homemade ice cream at least once a week. I still have not perfected the ultimate homemade vegan ice cream recipe, so I resort to store bought. Growing up I always passed on the birthday cake opting for a double serving of ice cream, when I did have a small piece of cake I love mixing it with my melty ice cream. 
It was a total game changer once ice cream cakes became popular, quickly my yearly birthday cake was an ice cream cake. So when So Delicious contacted me to sample their new line of sugar free and gluten free ice cream I couldn't resist. So Delicious has been a staple in our home since becoming vegan- ice cream and coconut yogurt are favorites, oh and I can't leave out the chocolate coated vanilla ice cream bars!

In New England you will often find Frappes on Diner menus and summer roadside food shacks. A Frappe is a really thick milk shake that is best enjoyed with a spoon or extra large straw. It is a combination of milk and ice cream and often time fresh fruit or chocolate syrup. 
Mangoes are super abundant and cheap at the moment as is the fresh tarragon in the Garden. Fresh herbs added to a Frappe is a new twist on an old favorite and I must admit pretty awesome.

The new line of no sugar added ice cream from So Delicious is pretty tasty and as the bonus of having less calories than your traditional vegan ice cream, plus it is non GMO, gluten free, soy free, kosher and organic.

We also had the chance to sample a new gluten free cookies and cream along with cookie dough ice cream- those were also amazing!

I am so jealous of those who live in a climate where it basically pours mangoes- mangoes everywhere, for free! Parks, on the side of the road, in your backyard- you folks are seriously lucky. I could totally eat mango all day.

If you aren't a fan of mango {you are crazy} sub in your favorite summertime fruit. Really any fruit you would use in a smoothie would work.

The Cinnamon adds a nice little kick of  flavor- I pretty much put cinnamon in anything I can get away with. By far, cinnamon is my most used spice in the cabinet, next to turmeric and cumin.

  3. Hi Heather,
    This looks delicious. The other night I made a mint chocolate chip and banana milk shake for my son and me. That was gooood. I love both desserts, cake and ice cream, and if they happen to be in the house at the same time I eat them together. So dangerous LOL

    I do not eat mangoes on a regular basis because I can not stand cutting them. I usually look for already cut ones in the market but they can be hard to find. At least around here. Bummer!

    Have a beautiful day!

  4. Hi Heather,
    I love the sound and look of this! I have tried lots of different types of dairy free ice creams and haven't found one that I love. Turning it into a frappe is a great alternative too. Can't wait to try.

  5. Yayy! This looks like the best possible thing to eat (drink? Uh, dreat?) on a hot summer afternoon. I am not vegan, but those coconut milk ice creams are still frequently on our list of things to eat! NOM NOM etc. :)

  6. This looks wonderful! What an interesting flavour pairing! I was never a cake person myself, I really don't like those sickly sweet icings storebought ones always came with. So I always flavoured ice cream. Ice cream cake was a game changer!

  8. I never would have thought to add tarragon to a frappe recipe! I can't wait to try this, it looks delicious. Another Mango beverage (smoothie though, not frappe) is this Mango Radicchio Smoothie: http://radicchio.com/recipes/mango-radicchio-smoothie/

    I believe in giving a little and taking a little. You gave me a great recipe so I did the same. It is a delicious recipe with a superfood mixed right in.
