This probiotic mango sauce has only four ingredients, and you make it in the blender! No cooking required at all.
This mango sauce will remind you a bit of a yogurt sauce, but there’s no vegan yogurt needed to make it. Its thickness comes from cashews, and it gets its yogurty tang and probiotic punch from GoodBelly Mango Probiotic Drink. I made this sauce using the mango drink that comes in the one quart carton, not the shots. And don’t worry – you’ll have plenty left to drink!
When the folks at GoodBelly approached me about sponsoring a recipe, I knew that I wanted to try something a little bit different. The go-to when you’re basing a recipe around juice is something desserty, so I thought it would be fun to go with something that pairs with savory foods instead.
I’m super excited to work with GoodBelly, because I’ve been a fan of their probiotic drinks for a long time. Back in 2013, Dave took their 12 Day Challenge, and he still goes back to their shots when he’s feeling under the weather.
This mango sauce is basically a thinner cashew cream. The sauce’s base is raw cashews, and you puree with the GoodBelly and a bit of raw ginger to create a sweet, tart, and slightly spicy sauce. It’s a delight! The combo of ginger, GoodBelly’s probiotic goodness, and turmeric also make this a great sauce for when your belly could use a little TLC.
I also think you could try making it with other GoodBelly flavors. The company sent me a Blueberry Acai drink that I think would work well in place of the mango in this sauce, and I think their Tropical Orange would work well, too. If you mix this up, let me know what you think!
Because GoodBelly contains probiotics, this is a no-cook sauce. Like my miso gravy, you don’t want to heat it on the stove, because that kills the good bacteria. The good news is, that also means this sauce comese together in a flash. If you’re not going to use it the day you make it, just pull it out of the fridge maybe 10 minutes before serving, so it can get a little bit closer to room temperature.
4-Ingredient Probiotic Mango Sauce
I served this up over rice with Salt and Pepper Tofu and a side of Ginger-Sesame Kale. It would be great anywhere that a mango sauce feels like a fit! It also works well as a creamy salad dressing or dipping sauce. So many possibilities!
Yield: 4-5 servings, about 1 1/2 cups of mango sauce
