How to Cut a Mango + Healthy Smoothie Combos

How to Cut a Mango + Healthy Smoothie Combos

My daughter love mangos, and they are pretty healthy for a snack (only has natural sugars). They are also really easy to cut in just a few steps, despite the pit in the center. Mangos are very low in Saturated Fat, Cholesterol and Sodium. They’re a good source of fiber and Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin C.

To start, cut two halves off the mango on either side of the pit. This will leave you with three pieces.
