Mango And Avocado Guacamole

Mango and Avocado Guacamole. Hey everyone! Now mango is not only a household favorite snack for myself and my kids but its just so reminiscent of my childhood. And I put it in as many dishes as I can. Did you know that its only 100 calories for a cup of mango?! You can easily prep this and store it in some glad containers or baggies to take on the go or pack in your kid’s lunch for camp or school. Another favorite of mine has to be avocado. So making guacamole and adding in mango was natural. You get a little spice from the jalapeño and a subtle onion/garlic bite from the shallot. Do you have any interesting recipes for guacamole? Share in the comments below.

Enjoy!

Mango And Avocado Guacamole

Two ripened avocados, halved pitted and diced. (I like mine chunky)
One jalapeño chile, deseeded and minced. (Leave some of the seeds if you like heat)
One shallot, finely chopped.
Two tablespoons lime juice
1 Tommy Atkins ripened mango, peeled and cut into chunks. (Most common mango found in stores)
1/2 cup cilantro, roughly chopped.
Salt and pepper to taste.

In a large bowl add avocados, jalapeno, shallot and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper to your liking and give a gentle toss. Now fold in your chunks of mango and cilantro. Check for seasoning and adjust if necessary.

Serve with vegetable or tortilla chips and enjoy!

Mango Dream Smoothie

Heres another throwback! My “Mango Dream Smoothie” is delicious and comes together in no time! It reminds me of a bowl of sherbert ice cream in a glass, without all of the added sugar and calories. It’s a perfect mid-day or night time snack. We combine mango and blood orange to get this delicious and citrusy, yet light flavor. Mango is also great for the digestion and helps to clear your skin! What are some of your favorite ways to eat mango? Leave a comment below.

Mango Dream Smoothie

One Cup almond milk (or nut milk of your choice)
One Cup mango chunks
One Peeled and sliced blood orange
4 Small pitted dates
2 Tablespoon lemon juice (approx juice of 1 lemon)
Pinch sea salt
1/2-1 cup ice (depending on desired consistency)

Just place ingredients into the blender and mix until you get your desired consistency. If the consistency is too thick for you add more ice and continue to blend to your liking! So easy and so delicious.

Quick TIP: I love to freeze my fruit in Glad Freezer Bags at the beginning of the week for easy and convenient smoothie prep.
