Being in a lockdown doesn’t have to be boring. The king of fruits is back and we tell you easy ways to slice it, juice it, puree it and smoothie it – with some Oateo Oats.
Anyone living in India would attest that we have only three seasons – summer, monsoons, and a two-week winter if we are lucky. In a city jostling for space, very few things excite us about summer – aam aka mangoes is one such thing.
The golden fruit makes its first appearance towards the end of March just when the weather is transitioning to a more temperate one. Mustachioed men with baskets-full of mangoes, each crooning to their own version of aam lelo begin marching on the streets enticing passersby with its sweet aroma, and so begins the reign of the king of fruits.
While A fruit that’s believed to have hundreds of variations, 280 of which come from India alone, it is held dearly across the world. Loaded with Vitamin C, Vitamin A, potassium, and fibre, it’s also a preferred ingredient in smoothies, milkshakes, and preserves.
While there are plenty of ways to enjoy this pulpy fruit, there’s nothing like a chilled mango smoothie on a hot summer day. Here’s a quick recipe to make the most of mango season before it’s gone.
