Mangos are very nutritious, containing only about 135 calories each, over 30% of your daily Vitamin A needs, and over 90% of your daily Vitamin C needs. You can eat them alone as a snack, make a fruit salsa to top some fish, throw frozen mango into a smoothie, or add some chopped mango to a curried chicken salad for sweet twist.
The most common question I get is "how do you cut a mango?". Although some people eat the skin of mangos, in the ripe fruit it is often thick and bitter tasting so it’s not typically consumed.
Here’s the easiest way I’ve found to cut a mango:
1. Slice down between the center and side of the mango. The inner part of the mango has a single large seed inside that is a bit odd (it kind of feels like a pumice stone). You’ll want to cut off the two sides, leaving only the seed and a little fruit on the inside. Start with one side to figure out which direction to cut.
