Eating a mango has a way of making you feel like you've been on a mini-tropical holiday! Heralding summertime fun, they can uplift your mood with every tasty bite. They smell fragrant and taste delicious, but they can be slippery to eat if they're not cut properly and make quite a mess if one slips out of your hand and drops to the floor.

Mangoes are an incredibly healthy snack, high in Vitamins C, A and E, low in fat and delicious in taste, they can be incorporated into any eating plan as a tasty treat which will leave you feeling satisfied.

Even if you have sweet cravings, they can be satisfied with a mango.

So on to the how to. You will need:

1 ripe mango
1 sharp knife

First clean your mango and put onto a plate or cutting board.

Next roll it over onto the side so you can cut down the cheek of the mango. Repeat for the other side.

Now take one cheek and cut parallel lines across it.

Then cut parallel lines down to make square incisions in the mango.

Now for the tricky bit. Pick up your cut mango cheek and get your thumbs under the skin side. Push up with your thumbs and watch as the mango hedgehog takes form right before your eyes.

Repeat these steps with the other side and arrange on a plate to serve.

You might want to have a napkin ready to wipe up any run away juice as mangoes can be very juicy and the juice is really sticky.

There will be a little leftover mango still attached to the seed and the two shorter pieces. You could either eat these straight off the skin, cut them off to eat, or use in another delicious mango recipe such as a low fat mango and banana smoothie.
