Salivating over Mangos!

OMG!  Next to broccoli, God’s gift to earth has got to be the mango.  They’re both so darned perfect, it’s ridiculous.  But I’ll focus on the (ah-hem… sweet as s-e-x) mango.  Peach-like and oh-so-juicy running down your arm to your elbow.. lick that off, please!  Did you know the mango originated in eastern Asia?  I think the ones here in Texas come from Mexico.

I just wanted to tell the locals (to Dallas) that Sprouts Farmers Market has mangos 2 for $3 right now.  The extra large ones!  My daughter and I love mango and eat one daily.  Here’s a perfect photo demo on How to Slice a Mango, I couldn’t have done it better!

FYI:  SPROUTS IS ALWAYS THE BEST PLACE FOR FRUIT & PRODUCE in my mind.  I never spend more than 11 bucks on pounds of mangos, plums, oranges, bananas, apples, potatoes, onion, tomatoes, romaine and spring greens, broccoli & sweet onion… Get there!  There’s always a sale!

Here’s a mango recipe you might like to try. Yum!

Mango Strawberry Soup

Prep Time: 9 minutes
Cook Time: none
Chill Time: 2 hours
Yield: 4 servings

  • 4 mangos, peeled and pitted
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, washed and stems removed
  • 2 cups liquid non-dairy creamer
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Mint leaves, for garnish (optional)

In a blender, place mangos, strawberries, creamer, wine and vanilla; blend until smooth and creamy, about 1 to 2 minutes. Chill for 2 hours before serving. Ladle into bowls and garnish with mint leaves if desired.

This is not only a fruit soup, it’s amazing as a sauce over ice cream! Serve it cold as an appetizer, or drizzle a few spoonfuls of it over pound cake and a scoop of ice cream for dessert. It’s one of those wonderful, versatile things that will work for you in lots of ways.
