My two youngest children who stay with me every other week and make it glorious, have begun a new night time ritual. I am sure it won’t last for obvious reasons, but I think it can easily transition.
We share a fresh mango every night before bed. We have been eating dried mangos for years and everyone loves them, so when I saw a box of very lovely looking mangos at Costco one week I brought them home and thus it began. I’m not actually very good at cutting them, but I don’t think that hurts them. I dream about the mangos I’ve read about in books the size of footballs fresh off the trees.
We stand around the counter and share more thoughts about the day or whats going on in our lives. We laugh and eat sweet slices of heaven right before disappearing into our rooms.
I am so grateful. I will need to find a new fruit perhaps? When is mango season over?
I found a lovely recipe I want to try when I can’t get fresh mango
Dairy Free Mango Lassis
3 Heaping cups frozen mango
Juice of 1 large lemon
3 cups coconut milk
1/4 cup honey
Combine in a high power blender or food processor and process until smooth and blended. Serve immediately.
Or this recipe and add mango. I actually helped film all the shots on this page from February on. 🙂 fun fact
