Mangoes are juicy stone fruit from numerous species of tropical trees belonging to the flowering plant genus Mangifera, cultivated mostly for their edible fruit. The majority of these species are found in nature as wild mangoes. Mangoes are generally sweet, although the taste and texture of the flesh varies across cultivars; some have a soft, pulpy texture similar to an overripe plum, while others are firmer, like a cantaloupe or avocado, and some may have a fibrous texture.
Servings 1 cup
- 3/4 cup mango chunks (frozen okay)
- 2 tbsp poppy seeds
- 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
- 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice or red wine vinegar
- 1/4 cup water + 2–3 tsp or more if desired to thin out
- 1/2 tbsp chopped shallots or 1 tbsp of the whitish portion of green onions
- 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
- 1/2 tsp Stevia
- freshly ground black pepper to taste
In a blender, puree all ingredients until very smooth. Taste, and add additional water to thin as desired, and extra Stevia to sweeten if needed.
