Ripe mango is one of the sweetest, most flavorful fruits with plenty of natural sugars, making it an ideal candidate for a sugar free homemade fruit juice. But, unlike many other fruits, mango is not the ideal fruit to toss into a juicer. Instead, the fruit really needs to be ground up and shredded, so I’m sharing how to make mango juice in a blender.
After blending the fruit with some water and straining the pulp, what’s left is a simple, smooth, naturally sweet juice that’s so satisfying to sip. Seriously, this juice turns out perfectly sweet on its own, you don’t even need to add any sugar. Just be sure to use truly ripe mangos for the sweetest and most flavorful juice!
Can you juice mangos in a juicer?
No, mangos don’t mix well with most juicers. A typical juicer spins to release the juice from a fruit. Mango flesh, on the other hand, needs to be shredded and ground into small pieces to release the juice from its vesicles. So, unless you have a masticating juicer (which grinds instead of spins), your best bet is to use a blender or food processor instead.
Do you peel mango before juicing?
Yes, cut each mango carefully to remove the pit in the middle, and then separate the fruit flesh from its outer skin. Mangos have a large, flat, ovular pit in the middle, so you must first cut the fruit to separate it from the inedible pit. Then, you’ll want to remove the mango skin. (Although it is technically edible, the skin often has an unpleasant bitter flavor.)
How to Cut a Mango
If you’re able, choose a variety of mango with a smooth flesh, rather than a fibrous or stringy variety. To cut the mango, hold the fruit with its stem up and cut lengthwise. Make 2 lengthwise cuts—one on either side of the stem, avoiding the pit in the middle. Then, continue cutting each section of mango into slices, carefully slicing away the skin and retaining the sweet fruit. (Watch one method for how to cut a mango here!)
