Shop The Sale: Mangoes


I’m trying to lighten up for spring and summertime, and I’m so excited that all the fruits I love the most are coming back into season. I’ve already seen them appearing on the shelves of Brookshire’s grocery stores.

I didn’t discover mangoes until fairly late in life, already in adulthood. But I love them now, and they’re a staple of my spring and summer fruit bowl.

Originally from South Asia, the mango is considered a tropical fruit. Placing under-ripe mangoes in brown paper bags can help them ripen. They will then keep in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for about four or five days.

Use Greek yogurt in this recipe for extra protein, and enjoy it as a dessert, or as I do, breakfast.
