My son is always my helper in the kitchen. He loves mixing ingredients and helping me cook or bake. I love how he’s so young, yet already so interested in working in the kitchen. If he keeps this up, he could be a great chef one day – or at the very least, an awesome husband!
Last week my son and I had the opportunity to spend some time with the folks from the National Mango Board at The Chopping Block in Chicago and we learned so much about my son’s favorite fruit, and we even made a few delicious mango recipes to eat!
We learned that mangos are one of the most popular fruits IN THE WORLD,and a mango tree can grow as tall as 100 feet! We also learned how to properly cut a mango – something I have struggled with for years. In fact, it has hindered me from buying mangos often because I just didn’t know what to do with them. My son followed directions really well on how to cut a mango. Yes, I let him handle a butter knife for a few minutes – he did great!
From there, we made a few delicious mango recipes to enjoy. We started off with Mango and Banana Smoothies. So good!
And for dessert we made Frozen Yogurt-Dipped Mango Pops. This, of course, was my son’s favorite!
