Step 1: Gather Materials

You will need:
Paper Towel

Step 2: Slice

Grab hold of the mango by the seed and carefully slice the mango right above (nearly on) the seed.
Flip over the mango and repeat process.

Step 3: Place

Place the mango slices on the plate.

Step 4: Slice Again

Slice straight lines or whichever designs you would like in the mango and then again in a different direction.
Do this to both mango slices.

Step 5: Spoon

Spoon the mango out of the peel. Be sure to stay close to the peel to ensure you get the most of your mango.

Step 6: Mango

Your mango is now peeled and you should have small bite size mango pieces.
It is an optional step to season your mango.

    You make it look so easy and there is hardly any mess. You have my undying respect today and maybe I'll actually buy more mangos. My kids and I love them, but I HATED the mess.... Thanks for this post!
