For 2 years, Jeremy lived in Ecuador. In that time, he learned a lot of things and to tolerate a lot of different foods. The one food he never had a problem with though, were mangoes. Fresh off the tree, still warm and juicy, after 13 years he still dreams about them. One of my children’s favorite fruits, mangos are a common sight in our home. They love when we cut up the mango and give them the pit to clean for us. We love to eat mangos and when the National Mango Board gave us the opportunity, we were thrilled to try several new treats. Mango sorbet anyone? Oh yes, this was heavenly – a hint of lime and coconut and the tangy sweetness of mangoes – it didn’t even last one night in my house! My children are big shrimp fans, so when given the chance to have coconut shrimp with mango dipping sauce, my little foodies were pretty excited. My family loves mangos and I am glad. They are so good for them!
- A one-cup serving of mangos is just 100 calories
- Mangos provide 100% of your daily vitamin C, 35% of your daily vitamin A and 12% of your daily fiber
With nutrition like that, I find it hard to tell them no! The National Mango Board asked me to share a video with you about mangoes and I wanted to share with you one of our favorite ways to eat them. Now, don’t get jealous because I am such an amazing Vlogger and my kitchen is so clean. Just keepin’ it real y’all! Tell me, what are your family’s favorite fruits and veggies?? What unique ways do you prepare them?
The National Mango Board challenged me to spend a week creating healthier eating and snacking habits for my family. Join the conversation and one of my readers will receive a cookbook and a chance to win a shipment of mangos and $200 gift card to Williams-Sonoma.
