Yum! Super Healthy Dessert Recipe - Paleo Mango Clafouti

Healthy Dessert Recipe - Mango Clafouti

Looking for an easy, delicious, healthy, cheap dessert? This Mango Clafouti fits that bill whether you are eating paleo or vegetarian and it's a popular treat for our family that allows us to keep to our curing cavities naturally healthy diet.

Clafouti or Clafoutis (pronounced klaw-foo-TEE) is a classic, rustic-style French country dessert from the Limousin region and traditionally uses cherries like this famous Clafoutis recipe by Julia Child , although people make them with many different fruits including pears, nectarines, peaches or raspberries.

mangoes - a super food that is delicious

We don't have it often, because we aren't eating much fructose, eat no sugar, no grains,  avoid phytic acid and even curtail our raw organic honey to minute amounts, but my best beloveds get a hankering for cobblers and this is close, somewhere between custard and cake. This dessert is almost guilt free!

Primal Dessert Recipe - Mango Clafouti- place mango in baking dish

I actually got the idea for this from Mark Sisson’s Primal Cookbook as he had a recipe for Peach Clafouti in it, but since peaches and maple syrup are hard to find in tropical Asia, I gave it my own little twist.

Mangoes, coconut flour and coconut milk are SUPER cheap and available all year here at the markets, thus it's logical to use them here and it is extra scrumptious. I also didn't want to waste my raw milk when coconut is so cheap.

I find it amazing that I have become a healthy baking machine in ASIA, but do enjoy seeing my little creations on the table and how they are enjoyed. Next I will have to give you my banana bread recipe which is probably the most popular one I do every week.

Oh, I'm busy looking into a "real" food diet, and I am in awe of what you do Jeanne on your travels. I've been looking for a cookbook but I get overwhelmed with sprouting and komboucha and such like and end up doing nada! You've inspired me once again.x

Theresa Lode

Oh YUM! This is going into my recipe card file. Eager to try it and am looking forward to your banana bread recipe. I have one that uses ground flaxseed but it's not banana-y enough for me.

Margaret Sch.

Waiting for more recipes! Thank you!

Jeanne @soultravelers3

Oh, I so understand the overwhelm Melanie! ;) It is quite challenging to eat really healthy today and I keep refining what we do...PLUS I have to find a way to do it all on our budget and in a place where I can't find many foods. LOL

I still haven't gotten up my recipes for things like soaked tortilla's ( which I should do for those that eat them) as now we are trying no grains for the last 6 months.

I am always looking for cheap, easy, simple recipes and a system that will work for us no matter where we are.

I am sure I will have to adjust a bit where ever we go..ie now I am quite dependent on coconut because it is so cheap and easily available here.

The big blessing with my health struggles is I have been HIGHLY motivated to find foods that heal...pain is BIG motivator...BUT it has taught me so much that I can pass on to others.

I think unless one has a serious problem, it is hard to dig that deep into things...so I am grateful that I can pass it along to my family and my readers.

I love recipes like this that are easy and fit many different types of eating like paleo, vegetarian, GAPS, WAPF...I try to learn from all of them...and find a system that can work for us.

BTW I haven't gotten to sprouting and komboucha yet on our travels...but I think they sound great and will likely at some point. They do look a bit intimidating...and organic sprouts are hard to find here and komboucha uses sugar which we are avoiding now. ( That is also why we are not doing water kefir now too).

I think the key is to start simple...one step at a time.Fermenting is intimidating at first...but actually quite easy.

Try my salsa recipe..better than store bought and easy.

One can do a lot with pastured eggs, lots of organic veggies and coconut! ;)

Jeanne @soultravelers3

Happy to hear that Theresa! Our paleo/GAPS banana bread is a real simple recipe...but I like it..so will put it up soon.

I am not really a cook, so I find myself fond of yummy, EASY recipes. ;)

They missed breads, so this gives them something legal and sweet to go with the raw milk.

I use it as a special dessert for me on weekends when it is hot out of the oven and I add a bit of my homemade ice cream. ;)

Simple, easy, healthy, decadent and delicious...my kind of fun. ;)

Jeanne @soultravelers3

Thanks Margaret, I will try to get more up more regularly.

There is a lot going on behind the scenes here, so as usual I am a bit behind on the blog.

My idea is to get a day of the week I always put the recipes up...but I haven't gotten there yet. ;)

Good news is they are easier to get up, than an intense post like homeschooling high school..but I don't always remember to take the pictures until I have made it a few times. ;)

Jenny

WOW! This recipe looks very delicious. I must try this one.
