Mango – the ultimate summer snack

One sure sign of summer is the ready-ripened mango on the shelves. These delicious fruits are the perfect summer snack and a chilled mango is perfect for those moments when you really need to cool down.

There are many health benefits to eating mangoes; first of all, they are low in fat and calories, which makes them great for snacking on through the day or eating as a dessert. The fruit is also power packed with essential vitamins and minerals. They contain a healthy serving of calcium, which is essential for healthy bones and are high in vitamin C, which is important for the production of collagen and helps maintain the health of the tendons.
In addition, the Australian mango contains high levels of beta carotene, which is beneficial to the eye sight and helps to promote a healthy skin.
These popular fruits are also one of the most versatile; they can be used in numerous ways. Add them to savoury dishes like curries or sweet dishes such as sorbets. When it’s time to cool down in the summer, they can also be blended with other fruits and made into a smoothie, or blend some mangoes and freeze them for a quick fruit sorbet. Another idea is to slice the mangoes and serve them with a salad dish.

Make the most of this delicious fruit during the summer as unfortunately, just like the summer, mango season does not last nearly long enough, so enjoy mangoes while you can during the lengthy, hot summers, and make the most of the health benefits while you tantalise the taste buds with the taste of exotic mango.

Fun Fact:
Mangoes have been around for approximately 5000 years and with more than 1000 different varieties available, there is always a new one to try. How many varieries have you seen or tried?
