Mangoes!!

OK, so this may not be that exciting to you, but our neighbors have a mango tree!!! Last year, it didn't have mangoes, but this year it does!! They just started growing and they're growing fast! I can't wait! Mango season is quickly approaching! YUM!! Anybody have some good mango recipes?
I like to make Mango smoothies... but here's my favorite Mango recipe :) (If you don't have access to mangoes, or don't want to spend the money, Apples work great in this recipe) :)
Mango Cobbler
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
TOPPING
¼ c Flour
¾ c Oats
¾ c Brown Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
½ c Butter
Optional – chopped walnuts as desired

Slice mango fairly thin to cover the bottom of the pan – depending on the amount of mango you want. (if you want apple, do the same thing… peel it if you don’t want peel… and you can also do a mix of mango and apple). I can't remember how long to cook it - I think about 15 minutes :)

nathan loves mangoes mashed up with apples and oatmeal and yogurt - I toss in some juice or milk, too, if it needs thinning out. baby smoothie!

Mango cobbler! Wowzer! I'll have to try that out. That's another one of my garden dreams--having a lovely fruit tree in the back yard that the kids could look forward to grabbing a snack from every day. Very cool.

how great! i hadn't ever thought to do a mango cobbler! we have two mango trees in the front yard. the monkeys tend to get them before we can though. so i still might have to go to the market to buy them. thanks!

One of my FAVE recipes for Mangos is Mango Salsa!! Dice red onions, cilantro, mangos, add corn, black beans and lime juice...a little salt and pepper YUMMMMMMY! Chill for at least an hour before serving to blend the juices....I like it with grilled chicken and rice...sooooooooo yummmy!
