41. Avocado Mango Shrimp Salad Recipe

Experience the simplicity and delight of this avocado mango prawn salad recipe, which is effortless to prepare, nutritious, light, and utterly scrumptious!

The fusion of flavors and textures make this salad an exhilarating eating experience! Brimming with prawns, crunchy arugula, succulent mango, velvety avocado, and crispy pine nuts – this dish is a surefire hit!

The quintessential mango avocado salad is among the top mango recipes – not to mention it’s wholesome, gluten-free, and devoid of added sugar! It can also be effortlessly transformed into a vegan salad by omitting the prawns.


40. Chicken Mango Salad

This poultry mango medley is a breeze to make and ideal for dinner when you’re craving something refreshing, simple, and good-for-you.

The blend of succulent poultry, crispy lettuce, sweet mango, and pine nuts creates an unparalleled salad!


39. Mango-Lime Curd

If you attempt only one recipe from this list, let it be this one.

It might be slightly intricate: warm your mango with lime juice and sugar.

Gently pour into the egg blend.

Next, return it to the heat and keep stirring until it thickens.

Incorporate the butter and sieve.

Then, allow it to cool…

Alright, it’s not too complicated, and when you’re finished, you’ll have a velvety, sweet, and irresistible spread that can be used as a filling or simply slathered on toast.


38. Mango Swirl Cheesecake

This cheesecake features mango puree in the creamy mixture and a delightful ribbon on top.

Spoon the mango atop and utilize a skewer or knife to gently create the vibrant yellow swirl. You can’t go wrong here.

I recommend baking in a water bath to prevent cracking.

For a more tropical touch, consider adding toasted coconut to the base.


37. Raspberry Mango Iced Tea

You don’t need to host a BBQ to relish this delightful summer beverage.

If you’re like me, there’s a limit to the amount of water you can drink. I appreciate variety, but apparently, four iced coffees per day are excessive… who would have thought?

Luckily, this delectable tea is a cinch to make and is both sweet and invigorating.

Begin with black tea as the foundation, allowing it to steep for about five minutes. While still warm, blend in honey and mango juice for full integration.

Pour over diced mango and raspberries, then chill for an hour before serving.

For an adult twist, consider adding a splash of rum or vodka to the mix.


36. Mango Lime Moscow Mules

Moscow mules are revitalizing with a hint of spice.

I’ve sampled versions with dark rum and tequila, as well as a variety of vodka concoctions.

So, how have I never tried a mango variation??

It’s as simple as blending mango juice, lime, vodka, and ginger beer in a shaker. That’s all there is to it!

Just be ready to make extra, as one won’t be enough.


35. Mango Chili Chicken Lollipop

Chicken wings are a reliable and adaptable dish with endless possibilities. You can effortlessly slather the sauce from this recipe onto a fresh batch!

But if you prefer chicken with a bit more substance, why not give these lollipops a shot?

Once your chicken is flawlessly fried, immediately coat them in the mango sauce for a sticky, sweet, and zesty feast.

The sauce is crafted from mango, hot sauce, ginger, cloves, and soy sauce, but chili paste or Sriracha would be equally delightful.


34. Easy Avocado + Mango Sushi Roll

Creating sushi at home has become incredibly simple with the advent of Sushi Kits.

The basic concept isn’t too complex, and with a bit of preparation, you can enjoy homemade sushi whenever you desire.

This recipe offers a vegan choice, packed with cauliflower rice and vegetables. But feel free to include salmon if that’s your preference.


33. Mango Soup with Coconut and Lime

Is fruit soup just a smoothie bowl?

Not exactly.

This recipe is less thick than a smoothie, and there’s an unexpected kick from a touch of Serrano pepper.

This tropical soup is the ideal summer treat, featuring mango, coconut, and lime juice – it satisfies all the cravings.


32. Mango BBQ Sauce

I adore barbecue. Barbecue pizza, burgers, ribs – it’s such a tangy and delicious taste.

This might just be the next stage in my affection for all things barbecue.

Mango, chili, garlic, tomatoes, and a splash of vinegar for acidity combine to create this sweet and spicy sauce that’s suitable for virtually anything.

I’m going to prepare pulled pork just so I can use this sauce!


31. The Best Ever Mango Bread Recipe

After the year we’ve experienced, I wouldn’t fault you if you were tired of banana bread.

So, why not attempt this mango alternative?

This recipe calls for fresh mango, but frozen can be used as well. Just make sure to let it thaw and drain any excess liquid before adding it to your batter.

It also contains raisins, which I believe would be even more scrumptious soaked in some rum.


30. Homemade Mango Ice Cream Recipe (No Ice Cream Maker!)

Condensed milk, heavy cream, and mango, plus 12 hours in the freezer – that’s all you need!

There’s no necessity for a complex Creme Anglaise base or a pricey ice cream maker.

Whip your cream to achieve firm peaks, then fold in the condensed milk and mango.

For your mango reduction, cook down fresh mango until it reaches a thick, jam-like consistency. This helps maintain a creamy texture in your ice cream.

Consider making extra mango and swirling it through the ice cream for stunning color and added flavor.


29. Mango Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are essentially flawless. Ever had a bad one?

They also serve as an excellent foundation for additions, and this recipe takes your cookie skills up a notch.

Simply incorporate chopped mango into your favorite cookie recipe, and you’ve instantly become a cookie master!

And if you opt for store-bought cookie dough, your secret is safe with me.

I prefer mine chewy and soft with a hint of crispiness on the edge, so avoid overbaking.


28. Mango Mousse Recipe

Blend four ingredients together, portion them out, and chill to set – requiring only five minutes of your time!

Perfect on its own or as a tasty accompaniment to a fruit salad.


27. Fancy Toast with Mango

Fear not, avocado toast still reigns supreme!

But if you’re seeking variety, this mango alternative may just tempt you.

Begin with a high-quality multi-grain bread for added texture and flavor, then top with avocado, tahini, or even almond butter.

Arrange sliced mango on top and sprinkle with sesame seeds or toasted coconut for a luxurious treat.

Mango mousse is a luscious, velvety dessert perfect for after dinner.


26. Curried Mango-Walnut Chicken Salad Sandwich

At some point, you can only consume so many tuna or egg salad sandwiches – it’s time for a change.

Believe me when I say this poultry salad sandwich will soon be your new lunchtime favorite.

Poultry, mango, mayonnaise, lime juice, and a bit of curry powder combine in a bowl to craft this distinctive and unexpected sandwich filling.

I enjoy cutting my poultry into generous chunks and including raisins, as a twist on the classic Coronation Chicken!

Feeling adventurous? Transform your sandwich into a panini for a warm, cheesy lunch that leaves you craving more.


25. Mango Salad Dressing

A salad without dressing is akin to a cake lacking icing. It’s possible, but why take the chance?

This recipe leans towards the sweeter side, making it ideal for children.

However, there’s a touch of vinegar, and you can always toss in some chilis for added heat.

I’d recommend serving this atop a salad comprising spinach, tomatoes, corn, and onion.


24. Spiced Rum Fruitcake

If you’re seeking a sweet treat that can be prepared in advance, give this fruitcake a whirl.

Loaded with dates, cherries, mango, and rum, it can last for weeks – indeed, weeks! The earlier you make it, the better it tastes.

In my home, cherries aren’t a favorite, so I’d swap them for dried strawberries. These provide a chewy texture bursting with flavor.


23. Mango and White Fish Ceviche

Ceviche is a raw fish dish marinated in citrus juice, typically served as an appetizer with chips.

In terms of simplicity, this dish is a winner. Once everything is chopped and sliced, just let the flavors meld.

Served chilled, it offers a refreshing alternative to the conventional chips and salsa starter.


22. Bakery Style Mango Scones

Scones are simpler to make than you might think.

The secret lies in using cold butter and blending until your dough resembles bread crumbs before incorporating the liquid. Be cautious not to overmix!

I prefer to combine the dough until it’s nearly cohesive, but still somewhat rough. You’ll complete the process as you turn it out, roll, and portion.

This recipe incorporates delightful mango chunks, but I’d also suggest adding mango puree to the glaze for a flavor boost.


21. Brazilian Mango Chimichurri Steak

Nothing compares to a well-prepared steak. I’m a fan of rib-eye, but a quality sirloin is always welcome on my plate.

Some traditionalists may object, but I believe a good steak is elevated by a delectable chimichurri. This mango-infused chimi is certainly worth trying.

Loaded with garlic, parsley, and shallots, you can speed up the process by chopping everything in a food processor.

I’d also include some mango to ensure the flavor melds beautifully with the other ingredients.

Serve atop a perfectly seared steak for a fresh spin on a classic favorite.


20. Mango Blondies

These blondies boast a dense, sweet texture, offering a delightful variation from the usual.

Although the recipe requires an egg, you can easily create a vegan version by swapping it with banana, which adds another layer of flavor.

If oat flour is unavailable, simply grind down oats. Using gluten-free oats makes this recipe vegan and gluten-free.

For a less healthy twist, consider incorporating dark chocolate chips.


Sweet and Savory Mango Recipes

19. Thai Mango Salad

Salads often get a bad rap for being bland and unexciting.

However, this salad is quite the opposite.

Its vibrant colors from mango, peppers, and chili slices make it an irresistible dish.

The dressing, blending garlic and a touch of soy sauce, has a delightful sweet and tangy flavor and takes mere minutes to prepare.

This salad pairs perfectly with honey-chili glazed salmon.


18. Mango Rice Pudding

Rice pudding is a budget-friendly, effortless dessert that can be ready in under an hour. In fact, 55 of those minutes involve cooking, so it’s genuinely simple.

My grandmother often made it, and I adored my rice pudding warm and sweet.

After a visit to Thailand, where they served it in coconut milk with a mango topping, I became a convert!

This recipe recommends using vanilla soy milk, but I genuinely adore the fusion of coconut and mango.

Feel free to use regular milk or evaporated milk for an extra-sweet touch.


17. Fresh Mango Salsa

Envision enjoying a chilled mango margarita alongside chips and salsa. Perfection, right?

Salsa is delightful, but sometimes it lacks excitement.

Mango salsa is fresh and slightly sweet. I relish mine with a bit of spice – though I’d skip the cilantro!

The versatility of this salsa is its charm – it’s great on its own and can elevate your taco experience.

I’ve served it with shredded pork, chicken, and fish tacos, and it’s undoubtedly my go-to.


16. Easy Mango Margarita

I had to begin with my favorite.

As a margarita enthusiast, mango margaritas are my ultimate indulgence.

This recipe features tequila and Cointreau, complemented by lime juice and simple syrup. The star ingredient is, of course, mango nectar.

Making your own nectar is easy, and you can enjoy a tropical beverage in minutes.

I prefer to garnish my glasses with a mix of salt and chili for an added zing.
