So when I got the opportunity to share my love of mangos with our readers, I got so excited and the endless amounts of recipes went through my head. This delicious, sweet and juicy fruit is so versatile and enjoyed with just about any meal or snack.

Mangos are a true superfruit, containing over 20 different vitamins and minerals and each serving is fat-, sodium-, and cholesterol-free.
