There’s No End!

This episode will inspire you to fall in love with the delicious tropical fruit mangoes. We will talk to a master grower and my pal, Mark Suiso. His family has been growing mangoes for over 60 years in the town of Makaha on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. Discover the finest tree ripened hand picked fruit in Hawaii.

This is why I love mangoes… and why you will, too!

1. Packed with nutrients. 2. Low in calories 3. Tasty, versatile, and easy to add to your diet

Mango is rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, and it has been associated with many health benefits, including potential anticancer effects, as well as improved immunity and digestive and eye health.

Best of all, it’s tasty and easy to add to your diet as part of smoothies and many other dishes.

Mango Nutrition Facts

Nutritious and delicious, the mango delivers on all levels. In addition to their juicy tropical flavor, mangos deliver nutritional value and make healthy eating a joyful and nostalgic experience.

Daily Calorie Guidelines

The 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend that adults (ages 19 to 59) consume 1.5 to 2.5 cups of fruit every day (based on a daily consumption of 1600 to 3000 total calories). That’s where mangos come in! The versatile mango is available year round and adds delicious flavor to a balanced diet.

Calories in a Mango

  1. A mango serving size is equivalent to 3/4 cup of sliced mangos and is just 70 calories, so it’s a satisfyingly sweet treat.

  2. There are 202 calories in 1 whole mango (without refuse and 336g).

Mangos Pack a Nutritional Punch

  • Each serving of mango is fat free, sodium free and cholesterol free.

  • Mangos contain over 20 different vitamins and minerals, helping to make them a superfood.

Mango Serving Size

  • 3/4 cup of mango provides 50% of your daily vitamin C, 8% of your daily Vitamin A and 8% of your daily vitamin B6. These nutrients in mango may help support your body’s immune system. Learn more.

    2. Slice flesh without breaking the skin.

    3. Scoop out slices with a large spoon and enjoy!
