A Summer with Mango

While it’s #AlwaysMangoSZN, the summer brings plenty of opportunities to incorporate delicious, fresh mango into your diet. Whether you grill, dip, drizzle, or enjoy as a snack, mango will elevate the flavor of any savory or sweet dish. Aside from its versatility, mangos contain several key nutrients which may help your body’s natural immune system to work properly.

Just one 3/4 cup serving of tasty mango provides:

  • 8% of your daily Vitamin A
  • 8% of your daily vitamin B6
  • 50% of your daily vitamin C

These three micronutrients are not manufactured by the human body and come from the food and drink you consume. With a varied and balanced diet, with some mango added in, you should be able to get all the Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin C you need.

There are plenty of ways to incorporate mango into your summer menu planning. Here are some of our favorites.
