What do you need to make mango puree?
Fresh mango – 1 to 2 medium size mangos will give you two cups of diced mango. Water – needed only to help break down the fruit while blending. Vanilla extract (optional), but adds nice flavor that you’ll love. Lemon juice (optional) – used to help keep fruit from browning. Sweetener (optional) – add only if you want your puree extra sweet.
Can you freeze mango puree for smoothies?
Use the mango puree immediately, or store it in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. It can also be frozen in ice cube trays for easy use in smoothies or other recipes. The calories listed are an approximation based on the ingredients in the recipe card and a serving size of 1/4-cup of the mango puree.
How long does mango puree last?
If kept covered with saran wrap on in an air tight container, mango puree will stay fresh for about 3-4 days. To preserve longer, freeze mangos for up to 3 months. If you don’t use the mango right away then freeze the leftovers in ice cube trays. I use large silicone ice cube trays that hold about a 1/4 cup of ingredients per cube.
What can you do with ripe mango?
Mango purée is easy to make and a great way to use up ripe mangoes, especially when they’re in season. Simply dice peeled mangoes and purée with a stand blender, food processor, or immersion blender. You can add sweetener, spices, citrus juice, or other tropical fruits to enhance the flavor of plain mango purée.
