Mango Recipes to Try

Mango Recipes to Try

Mangoes are not only delicious, they are very nutritious! Mangoes are loaded with vitamins, potassium, copper, and magnesium. They help improve digestion, vision, memory, and have been said to improve your sex life too! They help lower cholesterol and have cancer fighting properties. Obviously, mangoes have much to offer, not the least of which is their juicy sweetness! There are many varieties, but the most common on Oahu are the Haden, considered the “Cadillac” of mangoes, and the Pirie, which is smaller and slightly spicy. You will find many different ways of using mangoes, from pickled mango (using unripe green mangoes), to smoothies (an island favorite), to delicious desserts like mango bread, pie, or even ice cream. They also make excellent chutneys, salsa, jams, and jellies from mangoes. We have offered you a couple of recipes to try, and we are sure you will find more ways to enjoy this unique, summertime, island fruit!
