Seasonal Money-Saving Tips
5 tips for making the most of mangoes
- Drink up. Raise a glass to mango smoothies, aguas frescas, lassis, sparklers and sangrias.
- Wedges are in! Cut into wedges and sprinkle with chili powder or serve with a dollop of whipped topping.
- Complement your condiments. Give marinades, sauces, chutneys and salsas tropical flair; try Mini Tropical Cheese Toasts.
- Seek the sale. One of the sweetest, smoothest varieties, the Ataulfo (aht-ah-uhl-foe), is in season around now...watch for special prices!
- Stretch the sweetness. Use in recipes such as Mango Tea Bread or a whole grain salad to get the most out of every sweet bite.
