We can’t get enough of the mighty mango in this house!
And now that the stores are depleted and our stock is turning soft, it’s time to “put the lime in the coconut” or the mango in the blender, if you will.
Here are a few fun ideas for the left over fruit in the house:
Smoothie Bowls! Save those mango skins. While it would be prettier if we had some edible pansy petals, on hand we added pumpkin seeds and Craisins. The grove is limitless...add anything you think would be a tasty addition to your fruit concoction!
Smoothie Pops! It’s like the Popped Collar of the smoothie world. 😉
It's time for those good ole ice cube trays to shine!
Throw in a jazz hand or two with a little crunch! After you fill each cube with your sensational smoothie blend, top a few (or all) of the cubes with your crunch of choice, It’s like a cookie treat at the end of the pop! I like to use crushed Cheerios Oat Crunch.
Freeze for about 20 minutes, then place wooden sticks in each cube. Return to freezer for an additional 2 hours. *Rinse your wooden sticks before use! When pops are done, run a little warm water at the bottom of the tray to loosen.
Smoothie recipe du jour: mangos, strawberries, ice, honey, 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream (nut milk also works great!)
Easiest peeling method for mangos: cut your mango in halves and grab a glass; scoop out the fruit with the lip of the cup. Voila! You're so strong, look at you.
