(It’s a new song in the Snyder household. My daughter and I sing it everyday now.)

Did you know that Mangos are a super food? That one cup of mangos equals 100 calories? And they are in-season year round in the United States?

Me neither and that’s why my daughter and I are singing the Mango. Mango. Mango song!

Okay….before you think I’m going mango crazy…there is a reason to this madness. My daughter and I were blessed to hang out with the National Mango Board (and some awesome bloggers) a couple of nights ago at The Culinary Center of Kansas City.

It was such a cool experience because..


Seriously, for a crazy busy mom….there is nothing better than that. Good food, time with your daughter, AND having her love a new super food. WIN!!


So without further ado…here are the four easy steps to cutting a mango, courtesy of the Mango Board. (And thank GOODNESS I learned how to cut a mango, because I was doing it WAY, WAY WRONG for like FOREVER.)

How To Cut a Mango

But before I start, you need to use ripe mangos. How do you know if they are ripe? By the squeeze…they should feel squishy, but still firm.

1. Find the pith “bump”. (Also referred to the bump on the butt. Just imagine you are finding the butt bone on the mango.) Turn the “bump” right side up.

2. Cut on either side of the bump. This is where the fleshy yumminess is located.

3. Score the cut “fleshy” part with a small pairing knife.

4. Use a spoon to scoop out the mango.
