Mango Season Is Upon Us

Mango season is here and Keitt Mangos are sweet, juicy, silky and ready to be used in a myriad of ways.

The challenges of peeling mangos are minimized when cut into slices or in half and then run over the edge of a glass.  We put our glass inside a bowl to catch any  juice that may run down the sides during the process.  The skin can be scraped over the lip numerous times to make sure we get every last morsel.

We eat the slices straight, add them to salads and blend them into smoothies.

We love Karoun Yogurt from Jon’s Market for its thick richness which makes super creamy smoothies and mango lassi.

Our recipe calls for one large mango, 1 cup yogurt and 8 ice cubes blended until smooth.  The result is approximately 3 ice cold, large glasses of mildly sweet, tart refreshment. Many recipes call for sugar but we don’t find it necessary.  A little fresh squeezed lime and some cardamom are exciting additions although we usually drink it straight.

For fiber free mangos and the best smoothies and lassi, we strongly recommend Keitt mangos which are ripe and ready to go when they are soft, with a little give and very fragrant.
