How to Cut a Mango, Plus Mango Smoothie Recipe

2

Is it just me, or is cutting a fresh, ripe mango messy business?

My knife gets stuck in the pit, there's juice EVERYwhere, and the slippery fruit slides all over the counter. Ugh. I often wondered if mangoes were worth all the hassle until I found this DIY video, which demonstrates an easy way to cut a mango. It definitely comes in handy when you're craving a delicious  Mango-Coconut Smoothie (keep reading for the recipe).

Mango-Coconut Smoothie Recipe

1 mango, diced

1 tablespoon canned cream of coconut (if you can't find cream of coconut, use 1/4 cup coconut milk and omit regular milk below)

1/8 cup of milk

1 tablespoon plain yogurt

Ice (as much as is needed to thicken)

Honey (to taste)

Blend all ingredients except honey. Taste. If it's not sweet enough, add 1 teaspoon of honey (or more if you prefer). Enjoy!

Do you cut a mango like the guy in the video, or do you have a better technique?
