Default mangos

are amazing! They taste great and the health benefits are incredible. Everyone should buy a few mangos the next time they go to the grocery store!

I'm not a mango salesman or anything lol, just wanted to try a new fruit so I bought a few. I looked them up when I got home and found all kinds of great information about them and how healthy they are for you. more importantly they taste amazing! Cut up into chunks and put a bit of the light fat free cool whip stuff on them and its a great dessert!

YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT ABOUT MANGOES !! There are different kinds, and they are in season now, try a few (also not a mango salesman, are there jobs available?)


Don't stop at the sweets with them, they have great savory applications too....
You can chop one up, add chopped red onions, a few peppers, and toss that on a boneless chicken breast after you bake it, it makes a lovely salsa.

Or, slice one, and put the slices on fish with onions and herbs before you bake it, yum!!

enjoy!

My very hard to feed middle child LOVES them, in a smoothie with a milk and some frozen strawberries, and when she's not looking I toss in 1/2 scoop of protein powder. Yummmmm....

Yah, they are great!

Check out "green mango salad" for another taste and texture too

A wonderful strong sour condiment called "achar" is made with fermented green mango. Great with rice & beans, as well as morning eggs.

Mangos are the 1 food that I think the rules regarding eating only locally grown foods MUST be suspended for.

I also feel the mango love - I like to use them in savory applications even more than in sweets or desserts. They're great with chicken!

In FL here we recently had a sale for 99c per mango - I was a HAPPY girl!

This thread is a month old but I'm new and LOVE mango so I had to reply! I like taking sliced up mango and adding it sugar-free vanilla pudding and then sprinkling some unsweetened coconut and sliced almonds on top. Mmmmm, SOOOOOO good!!!

Mango Salsa!!!!

Diced mango, tomatoe, onion, green pepper and a couple drops of basalmic vinegar. It is a great way to enhance grilled chicken. Or you can just eat it as a side dish!

There were two different kinds on sale this week - I tried the "honey mango" instead of Tommy Atkins - it was a little smaller, and more flavor - I ate a little of the skin (because I had missed it when peeling it), and that peppery flavor I love was strongest there.

My usual breakfast is some fruit and plain fat free yogurt - the mango is great in that!
