Mango — The Superfruit You Love

  • One cup of mango provides 35% of your daily vitamin A, 100% of your daily vitamin C, and 10% of your daily vitamin B6.
  • Each serving of mango is fat-free, sodium-free, and cholesterol-free.
  • A mango contains 12% of your daily fiber. It’s a delicious and fun way to work your way up to that 100 percent daily intake.
  • One cup of mango is also rich in folate, providing 20% of the daily value. One cup of mango is also a good source of copper, providing 10% of the daily value. 
  • A mango serving size is equivalent to one cup of sliced mangos and is just 100 calories, so it’s a satisfyingly sweet treat.

How to Cut a Mango

In the United States, since different mango varieties have different peak growing seasons, it is always a good time to make this mango jelly for sandwiches and more. 

Throughout the year, you’ll likely find at least one of the six major varieties of mangos at the grocery store: Honey, Francis, Haden, Keitt, Kent, and Tommy Atkins. 

Each type of mango has a unique flavor, so experiment with different varieties at different times of the year. Each has a slightly different color, including gold, red, and green. Do not rely on the color to determine if a mango is ripe. Pick it up instead and give it a squeeze.  

How to Prepare a Mango Jelly Sandwich

There are many different food allergies and food preferences prevalent in our culture today, and thankfully there are many different options to help you make the best choice for your family. 

Whether you need gluten-free or nut-free products, you have many options for making the safest, most delicious sandwich for your loved ones.

Gluten-Free Mango Jelly Sandwich

Thankfully, this Mango Jelly is naturally gluten-free so the families who need gluten-free options will only need to check the ingredients for bread and nut-butter they decide to use. 

Many families need gluten-free or even grain-free sandwich options. You can purchase gluten-free bread at most grocery stores today. If you don’t see any fresh gluten-free bread available, check the freezer section for frozen loaves of gluten free bread. 

Nut-Free Mango Jelly Sandwich

Again, this Mango Jelly is nut-free, but many families face the very scary reality that nuts, nut butters, and peanut butter may cause a severe allergic reaction in some children. Thankfully, there are many nut butter options for those who are unable to have peanut butter.
