Kellie Hemmerly of the Suburban Soapbox shows us two ways to slice and dice this sweet treat in just 60 seconds, teaching us how to cut a mango easily. You’ll be snacking on fresh mango in no time. Well, in a minute, actually….
Mango Sliced to Perfection
To slice your mango, place the mango on a flat work surface with the stem side up and the thinner side facing you. Slice off both sides to avoid hitting the seed. Slice each half of the mango with a knife without cutting through the skin, then scoop out the mango with a spoon. Now you’re ready to add your slices to salads, wraps or just store them for a refreshing snack.
Diced and Recipe-Ready
To dice your mango, repeat the above process but after slicing your mango, turn and slice again going across the lines to form a grid. Scoop out the flesh and you now have diced mango ready for salads, smoothie bowls or your morning yogurt bowl. Freeze a batch of mango for an ice-free smoothie!
