Universal Seasonality of Mangos
Now, you might be thinking, where I am I going to find mangos in November? But did you know that mangos are actually in season all year long?
There are six main varieties of mangos sold in the United States, all with staggered growing seasons, so mangos are always in season! Each of them has its own personality with slightly different tastes and textures, yet all of them have sweet and luscious flavor!
So be sure to save this Mango-Wrapped Raspberry Banana Bites recipe. They will taste delicious no matter what seasonal variety of mango you choose!
Nutrition Benefits of Mangos
What’s super fun about this superfruit is that mangos are packed with nutrients and polyphenols. Mangos are good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B6, folate, copper and fiber. Just one cup of mango provides you with 10% of the daily value for copper, which helps the body form red blood cells and develop collagen. Copper also supports healthy immune function!
I’m hoping these insights are adding to your motivation to make my Mango-Wrapped Raspberry Banana Bites… along with the fact that they simply taste amazing!
How Do You Cut a Mango?
There are many ways to cut a mango. With all the cutting options, you’re sure to find the method that works best for you. For this recipe you will want to cut your mango into strips. The best way to do this is to use a vegetable peeler. Start by peeling the skin off your mango. Then you can use the peeler to slice off 1-inch strips. From there, you can start to assemble your Mango-Wrapped Raspberry Banana Bites! Enjoy!

Mango is not in season now, where did you get them.
I am usually still able to find mangoes this time of year in grocery stores, like Whole Foods. If you’re not able to find mango where you live, you could always opt for the frozen option! 🙂 Hope you enjoy the recipe!
