Expert Tips & FAQ:

What goes well with mango? If you are making a sweet dish, cream, vanilla, coconut, peaches, and pineapple pair nicely. If you are making a savory dish, cucumbers, red onion, and fresh herbs like cilantro, all pair nicely.

What goes with mango fruit salad? Coconut, peaches, pineapple, and bananas go exceptionally well with mango fruit salad, but you’re not limited to those. You can toss any fruit in with mango!

Is mango a laxative? Mango does contain sorbitol which is a laxative sugar alcohol that is found in laxatives BUT you do need to consume lots of mango for this to really affect you. If you have issues with things like IBS, it may affect you more.

Are you supposed to eat the skin of the mango? Mango skin is edible and packed with vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants. However, it can have an unpleasant taste so most people choose to peel their mangos.
