Mangos are naturally sweet and pair well with almost any flavor. By adding a key ingredient such as mango, family meals and snacks can be much more exciting. Plus, mangoes are nutritious and provide 100% of your daily vitamin C, 35% of your daily vitamin A and 12% of your daily fiber. Not to mention, a one cup serving is just 100 calories!
Mango Shortcake in a Jar
During our recent The Jungle Book movie watching party, we tried three mango recipes that were a hit with the kids. But, I believe the favorite was the Jungle Mango Shortcake in a Jar. The sweet taste of the mangos, added to a Greek yogurt mixture, and layered over Angel Food Cake was the perfect flavor combination. Since they are available year-round, you can make this recipe in any season.
- 1 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
- ½ tbsp honey
- 1 cup cubed store-bought angel food cake
- 2 cups cubed ripe mango
- 4 glass jars (8 oz)
- Mix the cup of Greek yogurt and the honey in a small mixing bowl until evenly combined.
- Pour cake cubes into bottom of jar. Position to form a solid layer.
- Add a layer of mango cubes and then top with a dollop of the Greek yogurt mixture.
- Repeat layers to top of jar. Serve and enjoy!
Simple, right!? And a delicious blend of eccentric flavors.
Don’t forget to take a look at the appetizer we began our meal with, Peanut Butter, Mango and Honey Roll Ups, as well as the main dish, Lion Pizza. All three mango recipes were easy to make and incredibly tasty to eat.
