Why You'll Love This Recipe

  • This recipe is oh so easy and requires only four ingredients.
  • This vegan mango basil jam will be your new go-to in PB&Js. Seriously, try this with peanut butter! 
  • The mango gives this jam slightly tropical vibes and the basil is a surprising burst of flavor.
  • Where can I use this? Use this jam anywhere you’d use jellies, jams, or preserves. I love it on toast with peanut butter, as pictured here. It’s also yummy in jam cookies and I’ve recently made a sunrise mango basil cake with it. 
  • Can I use frozen mango? Absolutely! Simply let the frozen mango thaw and then puree. You’ll want to use about two cups of frozen mango. 
  • Can I substitute dried basil for the fresh basil? In most recipes, I’d say go for it, but you’re really wanting the fresh basil taste here and that’s what I would recommend if it is available to you.
