Simple Mango Delight

Simple Mango Delight

This dessert is so laughably simple it almost doesn’t count as a recipe, but it’s so mouth-watering and so good for us–since it uses the health-promoting skin of the mango as well as the flesh–that we just had to include it! The world’s-easiest-to-make mango dessert delivers some great benefits.


2 VERY ripe organically-grown mangoes
Juice of 1 lime

1. Slice thin slices lengthwise from one side of the mango until you reach the pit, then repeat on the other side. Repeat with other mango.

2. Arrange slices prettily on a platter, squeeze leftover pits over them to release more mango juice, then drizzle with lime juice. Eat both peel and flesh.

Serves 4.
