Do you love mangos? You’re definitely not alone. This fruit has become one of the most popular ingredients for many main dishes, side dishes and desserts over the past few years. The sweetness of mangos can be combined with spicy vegetables like jalapeno or chili peppers to create a tasty combination that many people enjoy. In addition to its delightful taste, the mango is a very healthy fruit as well. Mangos have been proven to help prevent cancer, lower cholesterol and clear skin.

If you’re looking to add mangos to your diet, consider making one of these amazing recipes below:

1. Mango Avocado Smoothie

Mango and avocado lend this drink a silky smoothness. What a great way to start the day! This recipe is adapted from the Flat Belly Diet book.

2. Grilled Pork Chop with Mango Salsa

Add a bit of kick to a classic pork chop by smothering it with this delicious salsa. The salsa spicy but not too spicy and the mangos balance out the spiciness of the cumin and onions. Hope you enjoy!

3. Jackie’s Award Winning Salsa

I created this recipe for a Caribbean Foods Competition several years ago. It was one of 2 that I entered that won. I hope you think it’s as award-winning as everyone!

4. Strawberry Banana Mango Smoothie

This is an easy smoothie recipe that’s perfect for breakfast or as a mid-day snack to restore energy.

5. Mango and Avocado Salsa

Many recipes for this type of salsa include idiotic things like bell peppers or vinegar. This one doesn’t, and so preserves the intended tropical flavor. Chop the ingredients finely for a salsa, or chop large or julienne and serve as a side salad. In general, the mango and avocado should be cut to the same size.
