Mango Crumble

Hey everyone! I’m writing this from my bedroom, around half an hour before I depart for a trip to Malta (a teeny tiny island off Italy) for a week! I’m going with some friends from university, and I’m so excited! Really hoping and praying that I don’t get too sunburnt as always, but it should be brilliant fun, and I’ll share my pictures of the beach and all the wonderful food when I get back.

On to the recipe – I made this for my family last week to go with Sunday dinner, and it was so delicious. My mum, for some reason, bought about eight mangos for the week, so I thought I’d use a few up in a crumble… Not knowing at all how it would turn out! Mango isn’t really a traditional crumble filling, so I was unsure it would work, but it tasted really yummy, definitely a good dessert for summer to have with barbecues in the weak British sun with vegan ice-cream.

I hope you like it if you try it (hopefully the nice summery weather will hold up!) and I’ll see you when I get back – goodbye England!

  1. Hey Emily! I hope you had an amazing holiday!
    I’ve just found your blog as I was looking at being a student and a vegan, and read that you’ve struggled/struggling with an eating disorder too. I’ve not had a change to fully read through all your blog, but how are you doing now? I am currently transitioning to veganism which I am incredibly passionate about, however still struggle with body image and not counting my intake. I was wondering if you had any advice for recovery? :)
    Excited to see more posts, and try some of your lovely looking recipes! x

    • Hi Erin, thanks, I had a wonderful time despite the sunburn! :)
      I would say that I’m fully recovered now, to the point where often I completely forget I even worried about food, which is a huge relief. I’m sorry to hear that you’re struggling but glad that you’re looking to recover – I’d say that actively wanting to get better is a huge step. One of the best things that I did was throwing out my scales and stopping measuring food (although, obviously, this doesn’t work for everyone). I found that once I was unable to weigh myself or my food, a little bit of the pressure was taken off. Another thing that helped me personally was trying to engage in relaxing/social activities more, as it will give you something else to focus on (or something like a stressball if you feel panicky). Take recovery slowly but vigorously; don’t try to overload yourself quickly, just take things day by day.
      I could go on and on, but hopefully that’s useful for you, and I really hope you find peace in your body and mind. If you ever need any help, anyone to talk to, or maybe want to ask some more questions, please feel free to email me at any time and I can probably give more thorough answers!

      Have a good day :) x

  2. Wow! I love fruit crumble in the summer, hit I’ve never tried using mango. I surrender your recipe is amazing ;)

  3. Have a good time in Malta! I’m sure you’ll discover bigilla if you don’t already know about it, it’s a delicious dip/spread similar to hummus but made with broad beans (I’ve seen a recipe using chicken stock online, but the stuff in restaurants and shops looked vegan in Malta!). Also, chocolate granita!
