If there is one fruit that defines summer, it is mango. The plump, juicy and sweet fruit is not just a palate-pleaser but also full of nutrients. A great source of fibre, iron, folate and vitamins A, C and E, mangoes are also rich in antioxidants.

You can have a small portion every day to up your nutrient quotient. Here are two healthy mango recipes you can make in under 15 minutes:

Mango Salsa

Super-quick to make and low in fat, this refreshing salsa makes for a great cold salad on a hot summer day. Have it with bread or nachos or simply enjoy it as a wonderful and filling low-calorie meal.

Finely chopped onion 2 tablespoons

Red bell pepper finely diced ¼ cup

Bottled jalapenos finely chopped 2 tablespoons

Fresh coriander leaves, chopped 2 tablespoons

Lime juice 3 tablespoons

Gherkins thinly sliced into rounds 2 tablespoons

Salt

Pepper ½ teaspoon

In a big mixing bowl, add mango, red bell pepper, onion, coriander leaves, jalapeno, gherkins, lime juice, salt and pepper. Mix well. Cover and leave it in the refrigerator to cool for about 30 minutes. Serve with nachos or as is, garnished with chopped coriander.

Mango Yogurt Smoothie

This gut-healing combination of mango and yogurt works very well for the season as it keeps your system cool. The vitamin C from mango, probiotics from yogurt and omega 3 fatty acids from chia seeds make it the perfect breakfast smoothie to start your day with.
