4. Mango Chutney

This recipe is made without white sugar and white vinegar so it is much healthier. The cayenne is optional for extra spice.

Ingredients:

2 large mangoes, peeled and chopped
4 chopped dates, pits removed
2 garlic cloves, mashed and minced
1/2 cup light raisins
1 Tbsp ginger root, peeled and finely chopped
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients into a medium sized sauce pan.
  2. Simmer on low heat until the mango is very soft for about one hour.
  3. Stir often because as the mixture reduces, it becomes thick and can stick to the bottom of the pot and burn.
  4. When finished cooking, if there are still big chunks of mango, break them up with a fork.
  5. Cool and serve!

Will keep well in the refrigerator from 4 to 6 weeks.

5. Mango/Banana Smoothie

This is simply a naturally sweet and delicious smoothie.

Ingredients:

1 mango, peeled, sliced
1/2 banana peeled and chopped
1/2 cup yogurt or almond milk

Directions:

  1.  Wash fruit and peel and chop as needed.
  2. In a blender, combine all ingredients
  3. Blend until smooth and serve cold.
