It's the most wonderful time of the year - MANGO SEASON is here! I am feeling so blessed with the many mango trees in our garden. Being able to get them fresh from the tree is just pure bliss.

And the best part... It's just the start of the season. Mango nice creams, mango stews, mango smoothies, mango chutneys,... it's gonna be a lot of mango in the coming few months. I think last year we had the last ones coming off the trees around may.

So all your favorite uses and recipes using this yummy fruit are more than welcome in the comment box below!

Mango Benefits


Besides their irresistible, sweet, delicious flavor, mangoes have many good-for-you nutrients to boost health and happiness. They are a good source of dietary fiber, vitamin A-B-C-E-K, copper, folate, potassium, and magnesium. They also contain small amounts of protein, phosphorus, pantothenic acid, calcium, selenium, and iron.

Furthermore, mangoes are an antioxidant powerhouse. It houses over a dozen different types of polyphenols including mangiferin, catechins, anthocyanins, quercetin, kaempferol, rhamnetin, and benzoic acid. Antioxidants as these protect your cells against free radical damage. Free radicals are highly reactive compounds that can bind to and damage your cells, causing signs of aging and many chronic diseases.

There are so many mango varieties available in our garden. Unfortunately, I am not an expert so I couldn't tell you which ones we have, but the ones that are always bearing fruit first is a mango they call the pomme or apple mango due to its shape.

And then we have a lot of this variety too which I call the standard Cambodian variety as we see them in almost every garden across the country.

Oh yum! My mouth is watering at the thought of those fresh mangoes! I'm sure they're delicious in this recipe, too. It's unseasonably warm this afternoon, so I might just have to go for a walk in a bit and daydream about fresh fruit as I bask in the sun. :)

I am sure plenty of fresh fruits will soon come your way again... Enjoy the sun

Oh yum @amy-goodrich, anything one-pot appeals to me plus add curry and everything else you used can only be a winning combination! Looks amazing!

Thanks @lizelle. Since my hubby lives in the capital for work during the week I am all up for easy one pot dinners too. Have a wonderful day
