Easy Refreshing Mango Recipes to Try at Home

November 8, 2018 | Recipes

Mangoes are a great source for fibre and have high levels of vitamin C; it takes care of your immunity, helps with indigestion, lowers cholesterol and makes for an appetising base for refreshing recipes. Our fresh product of the month is the Australian R2E2 — it’s not a character from Star Wars, promise — which is known for its sweet mild flavour and firm texture. It’s only available between November and February, so we’ve taken the opportunity to show you 3 easy ways to use this fresh fruit to add nutritional sweetness into your day!

Mango Lassi

What you’ll need:
1 cup of plain yoghurt
1/2 cup of milk
1 cup of chopped mango
4 teaspoons of honey or sugar
Ice (optional)

The banana leaf experience is not complete without a cup of tea or mango lassi after. It’s a tasty drink that’s perfect for a hot day or one to cool down with after having a particularly spicy meal. The steps to making this are super simple. All you need to do is pour the yoghurt, milk, sugar, and mango into a blender for 2 minutes and it’s ready to be served! It’s really that simple. If you’d like a thicker consistency similar to that of a milkshake, add some ice to the blending process!   


Mango Salsa

What you’ll need:
3 diced ripe mangoes
1 medium red bell pepper
½ cup of chopped red onion
¼ cup of packed fresh cilantro leaves
1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
¼ cup lime juice
Salt to taste

If you’re looking for something that’s sweet, sour and healthy, dance your way over to the kitchen to make a serving of mango salsa! This dish is great with chips, salads or to complement fish tacos. Similar to making mango lassi, the steps to creating a serving of mango salsa is fuss-free and very simple; combine all of the ingredients into a bowl, add salt to your liking, and allow it to sit for 10 minutes to soak in all the flavours. And it’s ready to be eaten!

Mango Sticky Rice

What you’ll need:
1 1/2 cups of glutinous rice
1 1/3 cups of unsweetened coconut milk
1/3 cup of 3 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon of lightly toasted sesame seeds
1 large mango, peeled and cut

Now for dessert! Instead of thinking of ways to smuggle mango sticky rice back from your holiday in Thailand, recreate the sweet goodness from the comforts of your own home. To start, soak washed rice in cold water for a night. Then, sieve it the following morning over a saucepan of boiling hot water and begin the steaming process for 40 minutes. While waiting for the rice to soften, add the coconut milk, sugar, and salt into a saucepan and stir it until it’s dissolved. Next, add the rice and coconut milk into a bowl to stir. Allow it to sit for half an hour to absorb the mixture. Then plate the rice, drizzle the remaining coconut milk mixture over it, and serve with sliced mangoes on the side.

And there you have it, 3 mango recipes that’ll add flavour to your food and your day. Get fresh Australian mangoes from Village Grocer to create these recipes at home!
