Christy’s primary international taste is mango. It has a tropical, citrus taste that’s so juicy and refreshing. Mangos are a bit bitter, a bit candy, and lots scrumptious! There are at all times just a few styles of mangos in season all yr lengthy so I can at all times discover it at my native grocery retailer. Mangos include fiber, which is superb for intestine well being and helps us really feel full and happy, they usually include over 20 totally different nutritional vitamins and minerals together with nutritional vitamins A and C.

Mangos are fairly versatile and may be eaten by themselves, mixed with different fruits, greens, grains and herbs, or muddled or blended into drinks and desserts. I like consuming magos as a dessert or snack with a bit added lime juice and my favourite chili lime seasoning, Tajin. As a deal with, I puree recent mango and make it into paletas (frozen pops)! I discovered that, particularly when my children have been youthful, this was a enjoyable approach to provide my children fruit they usually cherished it! I additionally like mixing diced recent mango with cucumber, jicama and a bit cilantro for a candy, recent and crunchy combo.
