This mango crisp is one of my favorite dessert recipes, as it holds on to the flavor of fresh mangos and Manuka honey and pitted dates. Instead of regular wheat flour, I used arrowroot powder (synonym to arrowroot flour) that has a binding quality for the ingredients in a baking dish.
This mango crumble pie is one of my go-to this season, as we’ve got a ton of mangoes!
Manuka Honey is used for many fish dinner recipes. Check out how you can make a delicious dinner with Tilapia fish. Soft, fluffy and bursting with flavor.
Arrowroot powder has a great effect on our entire body. Rich in fiber, arrowroot has a silking effect on our skin and is keto-friendly. Arrowroot is neither GMO or a nightshade plant, for those who are tracking the ingredients from that point of view.
I also use arrowroot as one of the ingredients in my face masks! Arrowroot powder enables active ingredients in the mask to penetrate the upper levels of your skin as it has great moisture-absorbing qualities.
How To Make A Healthy Mango Crisp Dessert for Thanksgiving
Using freshly cut mango pieces is a must for a delicious flavor in your mango crisp dessert for Thanksgiving or New Year’s Eve celebration. I find that frozen mango pieces do not have the aroma and flavorful appeal in a dessert or any smoothie recipe. Naturally, it is my personal opinion, and how I experience frozen mango with my taste buds.
Unique Sweeteners for This Mango Pie Recipe
Manuka honey an pitted dates act as natural sweeteners in this mango crisp crumble pie recipe.

I try to use the sweetness from the ingredients I use in my dessert recipes. This mango crumble crisp has Manuka honey and a few pitted dates that provide enough sweetness to this dessert.
Add the benefits of the Unique Manuka Factor (UMF) stated on each genuine Manuka honey jar, and you are enjoying a truly potent in anti-bacterial properties recipe. Who wouldn’t like a great taste of a mango crumble that is mixed with healthy properties of the ingredients it’s made of?
Leptosperin is a chemical compound found in Manuka honey that is responsible for the authenticity of each honey batch! If there’s no leptosperin – it is NOT a genuine Manuka honey!
Dates are naturally high in sugars. Many health bars have dates as their first or second ingredient that forms a base for the entire recipe. This mango crisp crumble has just a few pitted dates to add to the sweet tooth of those who will enjoy this dessert.
Reasons Behind Ingredients in this Mango Crumble
The ingredients in this mango crisp recipe are simple. I also have chosen to go after the Organic ingredients to deliver the quality from inside out to any celebration where this delicious dessert will be served.
Arrowroot Flour or Powder (same thing)
Small substitutions like using Arrowroot flour instead of wheat flour make a huge impact on our bodies. With arrowroot flour, you are adding potassium, vitamin B and iron to each serving of the pie. In addition, you are eliminating gluten from each serving that comes with wheat.
Take a look at this post where I discuss the benefits of using different flours for your baking and cooking.
Chopped Nuts for Baking
Nuts are incredible powerhouses that offer a myriad of health benefits for our bodies. Many nuts are rich in fiber and micronutrients that can be found in ample quantities in them. Though the key is to eat from a variety of different nuts, rather than sticking to only one or two types of nuts.
Read up on different nuts and their nutritional values for your own well-being.
Ground Flaxseed as A Baking Ingredient
Ground flaxseed is a great ingredient to add to baking and any other recipe that doesn’t mind powders! With flaxseed, our bodies will receive fiber that serves as a probiotic to our good gut flora.
Flaxseed provides protein, lignans, and the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid, also known as ALA or omega-3 with every serving. I add organic ground flaxseed to as many meals as I can: smoothies, soups, gravies, fresh salads. There’s no huge taste in it, that is why it goes well with a lot of foods. I even add it to the New York Steak when I cook it every now and then!
