Health Benefits of Mangos

Mango is our fruit of choice this summer. Of course, all fruits are still brought into our house and eaten, but mangos are our current favorite. We eat fresh mango slices almost daily and have several bags of frozen mango in the freezer at all times.

I’m so glad the kids love it, as mangos host a healthy dose of vitamin C, B vitamins, vitamin A, fiber, folate and more. Mangos are packed full of polyphenols, which help boost our immune systems; and they’re loaded with digestive enzymes as well.

Another fun fact: mangos also support your body in absorbing iron and support healthy heart function.

Not only are these coconut mango smoothie popsicles delicious, but they’re loaded with health benefits too!

Turn your fruit popsicles into a mango smoothie bowl!

Blend up the fruit popsicle mixture using fresh fruit or frozen fruit.Instead of pouring it into popsicles molds, pour it into a bowl; add a few toppings and enjoy as a mango smoothie bowl.
