I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it enough, but if you’ve been a long-time reader, then you probably know that I’m a fan of mangos, as evidenced by the following mango recipes I’ve previously shared: strawberry banana mango smoothie, pineapple mango smoothie, and limber de mango (a mango icy treat). I love the fresh scent of mangos, the rich taste of mangos, and the vibrant color mangos add to food. Plus, mangos are nutritious – according to The National Mango Board, for every ONE cup serving of mango, you get all this:
- 100% of your daily vitamin C
- 35% of your daily vitamin A
- 20% of your daily folate
- 12% of your daily fiber
Isn’t that amazing?! Mangos are one of my favorite fruits, which is why I’m so happy to share this Twitter party information with you so you can learn more about the goodness of mangos and have a little bit of fun along the way. Maybe you’ll even win some prizes too! I admit, this is one of the more fun Twitter parties I think I’ve ever co-hosted. Will you join me on Twitter tomorrow for some delicious mango conversation? Here are all the details!
