Known in India as the “king of fruit,” this exotic little treat packs a nutritional punch! One average size mango has 110 calories and is rich in the antioxidant beta-carotene, which the body will convert into Vitamin A, and Vitamin C.

One average size mango has 75% of your daily value for Vitamin C! They are also high in fiber which will promote good digestion. For athletes, the potassium in mangoes helps replace electrolytes lost from sweating in the heat!
Since mangoes are in season right now, they are more affordable and widely available in supermarkets, with the option to buy those grown in Florida or Hawaii.
Add a little hint of the tropics to your meals with these recipes that incorporate the King of Fruit!
