Here’s how to tango with a mango

Mango, a wonderfully rich, sweet treat, full of nutritious prebiotic dietary fiber and antioxidants, is the perfect Paleo dessert.

Here’s how to cut a mango, because as the weather warms, I follow suit and warm weather fruits make their way into my shopping cart. Today I found gorgeous yellow mangos. I bought one and when I arrived home did the mango tango –a dance of slicing this slippery fruit.

How to Slice a Mango

  • 1 mango
  1. Stand the mango on its end, with stem side down
  2. Slice the flat sides off the mango, without cutting into the pit
  3. Place half mango on a cutting board, flesh side up
  4. Without cutting through the skin, cut the mango with vertical lines
  5. Next, score mango with horizontal lines; leaving squares attached to the skin
  6. Turn the piece of fruit inside out and use a spoon to dislodge the cubes from the skin
  7. Repeat for the other half of the mango

I let the boys chew on the pit –a sweet and messy diversion for hungry little ones.
