Mangoes For Your Baby

The fruit flesh of a ripe mango is very sweet, with a unique taste. The texture and color of the flesh varies markedly between different varieties; some have quite a soft and pulpy texture similar to an over-ripe plum, while others have a firmer flesh much like that of a cantaloupe or avocado. If you can find mango pieces frozen, then you can serve a nice frozen treat.

How to buy

Look for fruit without bruises and that gently yields to the touch.

Homemade Baby Food Recipe

Cut mango lengthwise to peel off skin and then cut pieces off of the pit. You can also try cutting near the pit and then slicing cubes into the skin part. Either way, getting the flesh of the mango is messy business.

How to store

When ripe, a mango will keep in the refrigerator for about a week.

Are there baby food jars?


Should I buy organic?

No. It was found by the USDA to contain very little pesticide residue.

Adult Recipe

We think mangoes are great just cut up and served. But if you want to be adventurous, try making a mango lassi. This is a special yogurt drink served in India for dessert or with dinner.

Mango Lassi

1 cup chopped peeled mango
2 tablespoons sugar
2 cups plain yogurt
Garnish: lime wedges
Purée mango with sugar in a blender until smooth. Add yogurt and blend well. Lassi can be made 6 hours ahead and served chilled.
