Mango is hands down one of my favorite fruits (let’s be real though, all fruit is my favorite) and, lately, I’ve been using it in so many different recipes. Mango is high in beta-carotene, which is great for your skin, and vitamin C, which we all need to be consuming lots of right now! Are you also feeling stressed? Then mango should definitely be in your diet as it has magnesium in it, which is perfect for calming your nervous system.
Here are all the ways I love to include mango in my diet, other than just eating it whole:
Blend it with other fruit & greens in a smoothie
Slice on top of salads or oatmeal to add some sweetness
Blend into a homemade dressing or sauce, I recently made a mango chili sauce to dip homemade sushi in and it was incredible! (Recipe linked here)
Make mango sticky rice for dessert - it’s so so good
How do you know when a mango is ripe? It should have a slight give to the outside of it, kind of like a perfectly ripe avocado.
Now go get yourself some mangos and enjoy all it's benefits!
