Bring the tropics to your holiday dinner with this easy four-ingredient recipe for Cranberry Mango Sauce.
Over the past few years I’ve started experimenting with homemade cranberry sauces. I’ve made a Cran-Raspberry Sauce and a traditional cranberry-orange sauce. This year I wanted to bring the tropics to our Thanksgiving table.
We love eating mangos in our home so I figured pairing the sweet tropical fruit with tart in-season cranberries would be perfect. Instead of using orange juice to cook the cranberry sauce I opted for a thick mango juice. At first I was gonna use Pom-Mango but I wanted a sweeter juice. Pom-Mango is still a little on the tart side. So as I browsed through the grocery store (with a 7 month old in tow) I found the boxed mango juice in the juice aisle at my local grocery store.
I chopped up one fresh honey mango. Honey mangos are the smaller yellow mangos. These are the mangos that my husband and I ate every single day on our honeymoon in St. Lucia some 6.5 years ago. I wanted to share some more facts about mangos. According to Health Impact News, Mangoes may very well be the king of all fruits. They fight cancer, alkalize the body, aid in weight loss, regulate diabetes, help digestion, clean your skin, and make the perfect snack. Mangos contain 76% vitamin C! Who knew that they were packed with that much vitamin C. And Cranberries have 22% vitamin C. So adding mangos to the cranberry sauce might help give your guest a vitamin c boost keeping everyone a tad bit healthier during the holiday season. If you want to change up the traditional cranberry sauce and bring the tropics to the table this holiday season make my recipe for Cranberry Mango Sauce!
