Despite the fact that mangos are not as readily available as, say, apples, they are typically in most grocery stores between March and September, either being imported from Mexico or shipped from Florida. Creamy in texture and similar in flavor to a mild peach or very sweet pineapple, mangos mix well with a variety of fruits and vegetables. There are many fruits that work well with mango juice recipes.

The high levels of pectin and vitamin C found in mango juice recipes can help to lower bad cholesterol as well as blood pressure, aiding in maintaining a healthy heart. These same nutrients can also potentially help to clear up redness and breakouts in the skin when consumed regularly, and the vitamin A found in mangos can help to improve night vision and prevent eye degeneration later in life.

For some, it can be a little confusing to determine whether certain fruits are ripe and mangos often fall in this category. Just like peaches, mangos are ripe when there is a slight give to the skin. Smelling the fruit can also be helpful: the stronger the scent, the riper it is.

When prepping a mango for juicer recipes, make sure to rinse the skin before cutting into it to prevent contamination of the edible flesh. Then, cut into the fruit in the same way you would any other with a pit: slice around the pit all the way, and then separate the two sections before popping the pit out of the fruit. Score the flesh of the mango with a sharp paring knife until it resembles a checkerboard, then scoop the flesh out with a large metal spoon, leaving behind the tough rind.

The mango puree or freshly juiced mango can is popular in many types of mango drink recipes as well such as tropical margaritas or martinis.
