10 juicy mango recipes just in time for summer

Perfect for the warmer weather (and the silly season).

Juicy, plump, and silky: mangoes are everyone’s favourite fruit for summer. While the fresh, tropical fruit is delicious on its own, you can also use them in an abundance of sweet and savoury dishes.

Look for Calypso® mangoes to make your recipes sing. Grown by Aussie farmers, Calypso® mangoes feature a unique pink blush on the skin and fibre-free golden flesh with a smaller seed, so there’s more to go around.

Need inspiration? We’ve rounded up 10 surprising ways to cook with mangoes this silly season — from a stunning festive wreath to mango salsa and sweet spring roll bowls.

Swap your go-to breakfast for this colourful bowl inspired by the traditional Indian drink, mango lassi. In our recipe, we combine yoghurt with fresh and frozen fruits, then top the mixture with a crunchy and fragrant cardamom crumble. It’s a refreshing start to a hot summer’s day. 

Put a seasonal twist on traditional crostini with this tasty mango and burrata iteration. The firmer flesh of Calypso® mangoes ensures the golden slices hold their own against the crunch of the bread. Serve this appetiser with a homemade tomato vinaigrette to wow guests.
