9 Summery Mango Recipes

Juicy and sweet, mangoes are referred to as the “fruit of the gods” in many countries. Mangoes range in size and skin color — from green to yellow, orange and even red. The flesh is usually golden yellow with a velvety, luscious texture. These fragrant fruits clock in at about 100 calories per cup, and they’re high in fiber as well as vitamins C and A. Mangoes also contain zeaxanthin, an antioxidant that plays an important role in vision. Satisfying on their own, mangoes are also delicious in a variety of dishes. Here are nine of our favorite mango recipes.
