In this first piece of my "it's mango season so here are a ton of recipes for the roof banging, lawn clogging delicious fruit nuggets" series, I encourage you to make a mango brie.
A delicious mango, which you quite possibly have 16,000 of in your yard right now.

This time of year is when this beautiful oval-shaped fruit hangs from the branches. The sweet and fruity aroma perfumes back yards. As they ripen from neon green to a bright reddish-orange color, letting the world know they are ready. 

If you are in an area where mangoes are insanely abundant. You may have a hard time figuring out what to do with them (other than giving them to Pastelito Papi so he can make filling for his creations or making mango brie, hint, hint). How many ways to prepare them and who to hand them off to. While you are buried in a pile of mangoes. Has the thought ever crossed your mind of “where did mango come from?”

 Probably not, but if you are like me you’re googling “where did the mango come from?”

Mangoes are native to India and considered to be sacred. According to legend, mango trees grant wishes. In the 10th century, mangoes made their way through Asia and Africa. Portuguese explorers brought mangoes to Brazil and made their way to Mexico, the Caribbean, and Florida in the 1800s.

Mangoes have great health benefits. They are high in vitamin A & C and are rich in antioxidants. Contributing to glowing skin and healthy hair. Mangos also have vitamin E, helping to regulate sex hormones and boost sex drive. They can aid in digestion and support eye & heart health. And, may help in preventing diseases, such as diabetes. 

Lucky for us mango lovers out there, we are reaping all the benefits.
