Let me start off by letting you know, I’ve never been much of a mango fan. But last year I came across these odd looking mangos I’ve never seen before. They peaked my interest and when I tried them, it was love at first bite. They’re called either Ataulfo or Champagne Mangos. Sadly, they just disappeared from shelves a few weeks after I started eating them, nowhere to be found in any grocery store. Turns out they are seasonal (hugh bummer). However…
Ever since finishing my fruit and veggie cleanse, I’ve been incorporating much more fruit and veggies into my daily diet, and was so excited when I found the champagne mangos have made their grand re-appearance. There’s even a website, found here, that tells all about them. There’s great recipes, nutrition facts, instructions on how to cut them, and where they’re sold.
So why do I love them so much?
They are seriously delicious! Super smooth and just the right amount of sweetness. They are really juicy, and can be a bit slippery, but the taste is so worth it. I can’t wait to incorporate them into a few new recipes. I bet they would be really good in a smoothie. Better get them while they last!
