Summertime mango recipes to beat the Miami heat
👋 Amateur mango picker, Martin, here! Last month, I thought something was wrong with my mango tree because the fruit never changed color.
- Well, turns out some mangoes stay green when they ripen. My wife and I have picked 64 backyard mangoes over the last couple weeks.
- We've eaten them raw over the sink, cut up and served over cereal, and blended into refreshing tropical drinks — plus, we've used recipes from Axios Tampa Bay.
Pro tip: Dicing up your mangoes and freezing them is a great way to extend their shelf life.
Here are some of my favorite ways to enjoy Miami's golden bounty:
🍹 Margarita: Combine your frozen mangoes with lime juice, tequila, Cointreau and ice for this homemade slushie. Add more ice for a thicker cocktail.
🍨 Sorbet: The perfect light, tangy dessert for a hot summer night. Blitz your frozen boys in a food processor and just add some lime juice. It was sweet enough I didn't need to add the maple syrup this recipe calls for.
