JUST FOR FUN

Mango Mash: It’s fun. It’s messy. It’s a blast. It’s how kids all over the world eat mangos. Take a ripe mango that’s slightly soft. With enough pressure to mash the mango’s insides but not so much that you break the skin, start squeezing and rolling the mango until it feels like the flesh inside is broken down. Have someone cut off the tip top of the mango and then suck out the pulp and juice. It’s like drinking a mango smoothie with nothing but pure mango flavor.

Note to Adults: This is a fun way to get your kids to eat their important fruit servings, but use caution if your kids are super-sensitive to poison ivy as there might be a slight reaction from the mango skin. If you’re concerned they may have a reaction, peel back the skin where they will drink the juice. Most people who are allergic to mango skin can still enjoy the yummy mango flesh.
