Fresh Mango Adds Goodness to Breakfast Menus: Good Looks, Good Flavor, Good Nutrition
Orlando, Florida (July 2011) – While most people would agree that eating a nutritious breakfast is a good idea, most diners require a greater incentive for healthy eating. That’s where fresh mango can help. Fresh ripe mango adds beautiful color, silky texture, tropical flavor, and it’s a natural source of valuable nutrients. A low calorie food, mango provides an excellent source of vitamins C and A—both important antioxidants—and a good source of dietary fiber. Mango also contains more than 20 different vitamins and minerals.
A year-round supply of fresh mango makes it easy to utilize its tropical attraction on breakfast menus. The National Mango Board’s recipe for Mango Waffles – a fresh compote of mango and raisins tops waffles made with coconut milk and finely diced mango in the batter –was developed by the mango man himself, Chef Allen Susser, with kids (and adults) in mind.
