Mini Mango Crisps with Greek Yogurt and Giveaway Winners

by jerseygirl on May 1, 2009 · 37 comments

My poor little guy has been sick so we have been housebound for the last few days. I have not made my usual four trips to the grocery store or produce market this week. It is a wet rainy day in NJ, unlike the 90 degree weather we had earlier this week. I wanted to make a nice comforting desert and I always keep frozen fruit in the freezer. One of my favorites is Trader Joe’s frozen mango. For some reason, my husband likes Trader Joe’s mango better than fresh. Have you ever noticed that mango sometimes have a pine type of taste? Well this frozen one doesn’t.

This mango is so easy to use. Just defrost it and there is no peeling, cutting or chopping. I could eat the whole bag myself. If you really love fresh mango, then go ahead and use that instead. How great do these bowls of mango look?

To top off the crisps, I used Oikos Greek Yogurt. It is a fat free organic yogurt made by Stonyfield Farms. It is so thick, rich and creamy that you would never believe it is fat free. This was the perfect comfort food for today.

Now I haven’t forgotten about the giveaway. So drum roll please………..the three winners are…..

Thanks for the tip about TJs’ frozen mango. I’m not so great at cutting mango, so if it’s just as good as fresh, I’d definitely love to try it! Looks yummy with the Greek yogurt too 🙂

The mango crisp looks SOO good, adn I’m glad to hear that someone else things that mango tastes like a Christmas tree sometimes. My hubby thought I was crazy!

Sorry to hear about your little boy, hope he gets better soon!

Love mangos! They have been on sale here (fresh) and I have been buying them up since I found out they were really good right now! I know what you mean about that piney taste…thankfully these don’t have it! Love your use of the yogurt!

That mango crisp looks awesome. I just cut up two mangos (literally moments ago!) and it was SO not fun. And yes, I know that piney taste. I just wish there was a TJ’s around here! Sigh.

I absolutely love that Mango… it’s so good! And sometimes I have a tough time getting much mango ‘meat’ off of a fresh mango, so I love the frozen stuff. (It’s good for throwing into margaritas too!)

Oh my, this looks so delicious and healthy! I haven’t tried frozen mango; actually, I don’t think it’s available in my town, so I’ll use fresh. Thanks for a great idea!

This looks so comforting! You know, I very rarely have mango (except for the dried strips that I like to snack on.) I really like the addition of Greek Yogurt, too!

I’ll have to try TJ’s frozen mango, I always destroy half the mango anyway. I’m terrible at cutting them!

I plan to make this recipe tonight! Do you defrost the mango first and/or do you cut it up or use the chunks the way they are?
This recipe looks amazing! I’m so glad I have TWO Trader Joe’s near my house!

Angie May 5, 2009 at 3:40 pm

Thanks for the mango tip. I really like mango, but I usually avoid buying it fresh because the taste is so unpredictable and I hate having to cut it up.
