'Tis The Season For Mangoes

What to do when you're overloaded with mangoes and need to use them up fast before they become mushy and soft? Here are some ideas to use them all up ;-)

Those who have been following my blog for a while would have came across a delectable dessert, Mango Royale. It's super easy to fix and it's a fool proof. Best part is... NOBODY could resist this dessert! I have a few tubs of these in my freezer at the moment.

How about turning a pav to a Mango Mania version???

Mango and Passion Fruit Pavlova

I folded in some pureed mango into the cream and topped the pav with loads of mango cubes and passionfruit. Looked messy huh? Short of naming this Yellow Yellow, Dirty Fellow :p

After all these sinful delights, guess what??? I still have loads of mangoes left behind, yeah I know it's absurb. I didn't buy them but my MIL have been supplying us every few days! So the next best thing to do is to cut them up into cubes and freeze them. Try not to lump everything into one big container, spread them out in smaller ones so that you don't need to use the whole lot up in a batch.

For frozen mango cubes, I turned them into smoothies. Just be creative! The best part is, you don't need to add crushed ice into the blender. I was lazy, so I used my handheld blender and whizzed frozen mango cubes and frozen strawberries (left over as well and I didn't want them to rot in the fridge heh) with some low sugar soy milk. We have some yummy hearthy goodness all in a glass. In place of soy milk, you can use plain yoghurt, milk or juices.

Mango and Strawberry Smoothie

Otherwise, mangoes can be use up in bakings as well. You can try this Mango Teacake or Skinnymum's Mango Bread. For savoury, try her Mango Chicken or perhaps turn them into salads. The list is endless... all one need to do is be creative.

Good luck and have fun!
