Mangoes: Health Benefits, nutrition, and recipes

Mango is the number 1 fruit in the world. It is also a well-known source of dietary fiber, protein, potassium, calcium, iron, Vitamin C, zinc, magnesium, phosphorous-3, and other nutrients such as carotene, quercetin, lutein, pectin, catechin, stigmasterol, caffeic acid, niacin, pantothenol, glucosinolate, folic acid, and many others. Mangoes contain all the important minerals that are needed by our body, especially when it comes to blood cholesterol level regulation. This is why they have been used for centuries as a remedy for various diseases, such as colds, cough, asthma, malaria, and so forth. This article will cover two main types of mangoes: sweet ones, and juices.

Mango juice recipes

Ingredients

Mangoes are grown throughout Latin America and Asia, but the most commonly eaten mango in these regions are those that were harvested before December 8th. Sweet mangoes can be found even earlier in some countries like India and Australia. These mangoes are known for their pink color, which indicates their ripe. They have white flesh, which gives them an appealing flavor. The pulp is used for making juice for various purposes! Here, we’ll discuss the mango juice recipe:

Mango Juice Recipe

¼ garlic

¼ bay leaf

¼ celery seed

¼ tablespoon ginger

1/2 tablespoon lemon or lime juice

1 teaspoon Chinese (or Thai) chilies – optional

Salt and pepper

Optional ingredients: Coconut water, turmeric

Method

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Celsius. Take mango juice and tomato juices into a blender and blend until you achieve a smooth paste, then add cucumber, carrots, peppers, and garlic. Add salt and pepper and mix it well. Pour into a large glass jar. Cover with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator overnight until mangoes start to open. The refrigerator will help bring moisture content back to normal temperature while mangoes grow.

On day 2, open up mangoes from inside, remove all seeds, peel, cut any thick skins, and cut the pulp into small chunks. If the mangoes look brownish, let go (that is called mummification). Keep fresh, put some mangoes in the juicer, cover under running hot water and allow it to cool to room temperature. Then simply refrigerate in the fridge for another couple of hours before enjoying mangoes as juice. Continue doing this step for approximately two months, until mangoes will become firm and have firm flesh on top. You might experience a slightly bitter taste at first, but this should soon disappear. Once mangoes are ripe enough to eat, keep them refrigerated for several hours before consuming one large serving of mangoes (or more if necessary). Afterward, leave them for fifteen minutes, then mash up your pulp-made mangoes. Enjoy!

Mango juice

Mangoes are not just fruit! There are many kinds of mangoes:

Sweet mangoes (the kind you can find in bakeries and supermarkets): You may see pink, round, slightly deformed pink, white, yelled and dad, or purple. When mangoes are young, they don’t produce much pulp, but when they grow older, they do. As mangoes mature, they make thicker pulp. So, for example, pink mangoes may be softer than other mangoes. Meanwhile, mangoes that are very ripe but still green will make bigger and thicker pulp. For example, when mangoes are really ripe but still green, their pulp doesn’t go away as sugar does. Also, mangoes that are soft, juicy, and ripe are great tasting.

Mango juice without mangoes

It doesn’t matter whether mangoes are ripe or not, they taste delicious and it is great to drink mango juice instead. However, mangoes can be used even in raw form for making orange juice!
