There’s something about having a perfectly sweet and ripe mango that makes me feel like I’m on a tropical vacation. They are packed with Vitamin C, A and fiber.
We usually just eat them plain, but they are also fun to put on top of yogurt or to mix into smoothies.
For a cool summer treat I was inspired to make something that was not only tasty and healthy, but a fun activity my kids and I could do together.
Mango and Raspberry Stacks
After we ate the first batch. I froze a dozen others and then we ate them for dessert after dinner. They were like mini frozen popsicles without the sugar. (just be careful of the toothpick) Here’s a link to some mango tips on how to pick, ripen and store them and more fun recipes.
The National Mango Board challenged me to spend a week creating healthier eating and snacking habits for my family. Join the conversation and one of my readers will receive a cookbook and a chance to win a shipment of mangos and $200 gift card to Williams-Sonoma.
