Everything You Need To Know About Freeze Dried Mangoes

Freeze Dried Mangoes are one of my favorite things.  Definitely my favorite freeze dried food.   I like regular mangoes, but I have a hard time finding good ones, and I hate cutting them up.  Freeze Dried Mangoes are shelf stable so I always have them on hand and they are already cut up so they are easy to use.  Freeze Dried Mangoes are diced into medium sized pieces, tangy, sweet.     

Cost – Based on Fall 2011 Shelf Reliance Price List

Freeze Dried Mangoes cost per serving $0.49
Freeze Dried Mangoes cost per cup $1.96

My Favorite Freeze Dried Mango Recipes

  Mango shaved ice is actually pretty simple to make.  It is a great summer desert. It only takes a few minutes to make.  I think you will love it.

 The coconut rice is delicious on its own but put together with the mango chicken stir fry it is a great combination.

I am so happy with this recipe.  I know the cookies aren’t much to look at but they are heavenly. They were so good I didn’t share any of them with my kids. I just ate the last one and now I wish I had more.    
This recipe is super-fast and easy and amazing. It makes about 10 cookies, and they need to refrigerate for a while, as the mangoes soften and then honey solidifies.  An hour or two in the fridge is ample.
