Mango Puree Recipe!
Mangos are such a vibrant tropical fruit. And super delicious!
Summers in south Florida are full of an abundance of mangos!
We usually end up with bags and bags of mangos.
However, each of these recipes call for mango puree.
And I’m guessing that that is why you are here! You probably have a mouth watering mango recipe that calls for mango puree.
But don’t worry! Mango puree is soooo easy to make!
How To Make Mango Puree
All you need to make mango puree is a really good blender.
It has to be a powerful one or you might end up with mango strings in your puree. Not a pleasant texture!
I use the Vitamix Blender. It is the BEST blender you can find!
I have been using my Vitamix Blender for over ten years and it’s still going strong!
It creates a super smooth mango puree!
Start by adding your mango to your blender.
I add mango until it reaches about the two to three cup mark. As in this picture.
Mango Puree Recipe
If you add too much mango to the blender it will be harder for it to blend and you will have to stop the blender to scrape down the sides more frequently.
It’s a lot faster and easier to blend small amounts at a time.
And that’s it! One simple ingredient!
Depending on how ripe and juicy your mango is you might have to add a couple of tablespoons of water as well. I personally like to keep my mango puree as intense and flavorful as possible so I don’t add any water. I also prefer for my puree to be somewhat thick and not runny.
If your blender is not very powerful you will need the added water to keep the motor from overworking. With my Vitamix Blender however, I am able to blend my mango without adding water.
I do have to stop blending and stir the mango puree frequently to help the mango chunks to make it down to the blades through the thick puree, but it still makes a beautifully smooth puree!
If you don’t want to have to do that, then just add a little water as needed, you will still end up with a delicious mango puree!
Now I have seen a mango puree recipe before that had sugar added to it. In my opinion that is not necessary. Ripe mango is very sweet on it’s own, sugar is definitely not needed to enhance it’s flavor!
Plus, not only does it taste amazing by itself, but it’s also healthier! So keep it simple and healthy, don’t add sugar!
Mango Puree Baby Food
Mango recipes are not the only reason to puree mango.
Pureeing mango using the Vitamix Blender is also a great way to make mango baby food! Especially if you don’t add any sugar.
Because the Vitamix Blender does such a good job of blending and does not leave any strings as we mentioned above, it’s a great tool to use to puree mango for your baby.
How To Make Mango Baby Food
Simply blend your mango as above until extremely smooth before serving it to your baby.
I would blend the mango a little longer when making baby food than when making mango puree for other recipes, just to be sure that there are absolutely no strings that baby can choke on.
After pureeing your mango you have two options.
You can either use it fresh immediately.
Or you can freeze the mango puree for future recipes. This is a great option if you have an abundance of mangos.
And whenever you have a recipe that you would like to make that calls for mango, you can simply pull some mango out of the freezer instead of having to blend it fresh. What a time saver!
