A Treat From The Freezer

When mangoes were ripe and yummy quite a few months ago, I bought more than I could eat and stored the extra in the freezer. And now, when the summer fruit hasn't yet fully ripened and gotten reasonably priced, I'm enjoying those mangoes.

Mangoes thaw really well, but when frozen they are like the best quality sorbet imaginable. All natural and very healthy.

Nutrition by the Numbers
One cup (225 grams contain) contains the following. Percentages apply to daily value.

  • 25 percent vitamin A  (antioxidant and vision)
  • 11 percent vitamin B6 plus other B vitamins (hormone production in brain and heart disease prevention)
  • 9 percent healthy probiotic fiber
