Today, Kim and I are sharing a really simple recipe that has a ton of uses in the kitchen.

While you can eat this puree as-is, it’s better suited for smoothies (great for our mango banana smoothie!), pie fillings, or as a topping.

Best of all, our mango puree only uses two ingredients and takes 10-minutes or less to prepare.

What can I do with mango puree?

There a lot of things you can do with pureed fruit. For example, you can freeze it for smoothies, use it as a topping for crepes or pancakes, mix it into batters for breads and cakes, or use it as a topping for ice cream.

How long does mango puree last in the fridge?

Like most fresh foods, we only store dishes like this the fridge for 3-5 days.

One last thing to mention, I do NOT recommend using frozen mango for this recipe. Simply put, it lacks the flavor and moisture needed to create a quality puree.

How to make mango puree from scratch?

First, peel the mangoes. After that, go ahead cut the fruit flesh away from the pits. Discard the pits and place the chunks of mango into the food processor.

Next, pulse the fruit until it creates a smooth and creamy puree.

Now, you may need to add a tablespoon or two of water to the mixture, depending on the thickness of the puree.

Last, use the puree immediately or place it into a container with lid and store it in your fridge.

It will hold for up to 3-days in a sealed container. Alternatively, the mango puree can be frozen for up to 3-months.

    1. Good morning Jeanne, sure you can use a blender in place of a food processor. The texture might be a little different, but it should work. Thank you for asking, have a lovely day 🙂
