How to Cut a Mango

Mangos are rich in dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, and poly-phenolic flavonoid antioxidant compounds.

After you have cut it, you can eat the slices right away as a snack, or use it for desserts, salads, and even in main courses, with meat!

How to cut a mango in 5 steps

1. Wash the fruit

Always wash the mango before cutting, so that bacteria doesn’t transfer from the skin to the knife, to the flesh.

2. Cut the flesh along the seed

A mango’s seed is flat and almost as long as the fruit. So you must cut around it. Put the fruit on a cutting board and slice the two sides. You will now have two flesh ovals with skin.

3. Cut the flesh

Slice the flesh into the two ovals without piercing the skin. Cut parallel lines into it. And then cut perpendicular lines into it, in a crisscross pattern.

4. Turn out the flesh

Grab the sides of the mango oval and pus the skin part inward and the flesh part outward. It will be easier to remove the flesh like that.

5. Scoop out the flesh

Use a spoon or your clean hands to gently scoop out the mango pieces. And you’re done!

I’m a pop culture nerd who thinks too much about fried bacon, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and life, the Universe and everything. I love food and sometimes you can see that on my hips, but I don't care that much about that.
What I do care more about is trying to eat healthier, even though I admit that I like to indulge in my food fantasies. I’m addicted to puns, so forgive me for that when you read my articles. I now know too much about nutrition to be fun to hang out with. So long and thanks for all the fish-based omega-3 fatty acids.
