California-Grown Keitt Mangoes

California Grown Keitt Mangoes

Super sweet and oh-so-delicious, Keitt (pronounced keet) mangoes are grown here in sunny California! Did you know that Keitt mangoes are left on the tree longer than imported mangoes? This results in them being a sweeter tasting fruit with a nice, smooth texture.

Don't let the green fool you!

Though their skin may turn a bit golden, Keitt mangos may remain a deep green even when ripe! To check for ripeness, give it a slight squeeze, and it should yield under gentle pressure - similar to an avocado. If your mango still needs a little time to finish ripening, leave it out at room temperature. Once ripe, you can store it in the fridge and use within a few days.  
 

HOW TO CUT A MANGO

The flesh of the mango is a striking golden-orange. There is a large flat seed in the center that needs to be removed. Learn how to easily cube your mango using these quick steps in the video above.

Strawberry Salsa with Cinnamon Chip

This salsa is like a mini fruit salad that you eat with cinnamon-sugar chips. Our favorite part about this recipe is how adaptable this salsa can be. In the summer, you could easily make this salsa and feature mango, cantaloupe, or peaches. We enjoy eating this salsa with homemade sugar chips, but this sweeter salsa would also be good with yogurt, topped on oatmeal or plain as a snack. Store leftover salsa in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 days.

Mighty Mango & Avocado Smoothie

Ingredients:
(serves one)
1 Keitt mango, pit removed and peeled
1 avocado, pit removed and peeled
1 cup strawberries, stems removed
1/4 or more apple juice

Directions:
Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and mix until combined. Add more apple juice depending on your smoothie thickness preference (more apple juice will help thin the smoothie out and make it easier to sip through a straw).
