Recipe: Vegan Custard Tropicana

Turning limitation into inspiration, this is the fifth in a series of recipes born of a 14-day cleanse. Living in a hotel, with no kitchen appliances save a kettle, a borrowed blender and a knife, in the middle of the Western Region deserts in the emirate of Abu Dhabi, where grocery shopping leaves much to be desired. And yet, we’ve come up with some pretty tasty treats!

Rich, creamy, and free from animal products – a true detoxer’s delight.


  • 1 avocado
  • 1 mango
  • 1 banana
  • coconut oil or milk
  • optional: vanilla extract, almond milk

Throw all ingredients into the blender and . . . blend!  For a chunky dessert, take it easy on the blend time; alternatively, add some almond milk for a silkier style.
