I've got a weakness for sweetness

A friend blessed me with this plate of deliciousness this evening. I was overjoyed when I got them because mangoes are one of my absolute favourite fruit. I love all kinds of mangoes and I love them just as, or in daiquiris, cakes, salads and just about anyway they are prepared. 

Mangoes are often described as the king of all fruits because they pack a mean punch of health benefits. 

Five Top Reasons To Eat Mangoes
1. Fight Cancers (Antioxidants like quercetin, and methylgallat present in mango protect the body against colon, breast, leukaemia and prostate cancers). 
2. Cleanse the skin (Mangoes help you unclog your pores and add freshness to the face).
3. Weight Loss  (The fibrous fruit boosts the digestive function of the body by burning additional calories, helping in weight loss).
4. Aphrodisiac (Mango has aphrodisiac qualities and is also called the ‘love fruit’).
5. Aids concentration and memory (This fruit is rich in glutamine acid– an important protein for concentration and memory).
