Here are 23 delicious recipes that use overripe mangos.
23 Overripe Mango Recipes
Mango Cheese Roll is a delicious, easy, and quick recipe that’s perfect for summer.
The secret ingredient?
You can use any kind of cheese – or even leave it off if you’re feeling too lazy to slice up some fruit (I know what my family would say).
But best yet…
It comes out every time looking like something from Pinterest- so professional in fact, no one will ever guess how simple this yummy treat really was made with just 4 ingredients.
2. Mango Bars

So go ahead and impress your guests, and show them that not everything has to be complicated.
Easy Mango Bread is a healthy recipe for when you’re craving a fresh piece of bread. It’s light and fluffy and has just enough mango to give it a little zing.
I have to admit, I’m not the biggest fan of eating bread. But with this recipe, you can eat it any time of day – as long as you like mangoes.
The recipe is pretty easy, but if you’re not sure where to start, here are some tips:
1. You can use any kind of bread, but I recommend using whole-wheat or multi-grain bread for this recipe.
2. The bread should be a little moist.
3. The mango can be cut into slices or cubes. If you do it in cubes, the pieces will be larger and easier to chew.
4. It’s best to let the bread sit for about 5 minutes before you spread the mango on top. This will help the bread absorb more of the mango juice.
Mango Crumble Bars are perfect to use up the mangoes that are getting a little too ripe for your liking.
And because the mangoes are mixed with a few oats, they’re not only healthy but also delicious!
The secret ingredient?
If you don’t have coconut oil on hand, you can use a little bit of butter, but the bars won’t be as soft.
If you love mangoes as much as I do, you’ve probably already tried making mango mousse. But here’s another way to enjoy mangoes: with a simple, light dessert!

This is the perfect drink for when you’re feeling lazy. It has all the goodness of an ice cream float, without all the fuss and calories!
And as an added bonus, it’s a refreshing drink that’ll be gone before you know it.
I love mango floats because they remind me of summers spent in the country. My family would take a big bucket of ice and mix it with fruit juice, sugar, and water.
Then we’d take our time dipping the frozen ice cream into the mixture and eating it.
It was fun, to say the least, but sometimes I think we didn’t get enough sugar!
So this recipe is just like that, except you can make it with any kind of juice.
Here are a few ideas for your next mango float:
Apple or pear juice, grapefruit, or apple.

Homemade Mango Curd is a delicious, refreshing treat that comes out every time looking so much better than any store-bought mango curd.
I like to serve it with granola or with plain yogurt and fresh fruit.
I love sorbets and have even made my own in the past. But I don’t really enjoy making them, and they’re never as creamy as they should be. So I decided to try a different recipe – one that was easy, yet tasted great.
And boy, am I glad I did!

The secret ingredient is mango. The sweetness of the fruit really comes through and makes this recipe so light and refreshing.
If you want to take this recipe up a notch, use frozen mango and skip the thawing process. But make sure the mangoes you buy are very ripe – if they’re not ripe enough, you’ll get a slightly bitter sorbet instead of a sweet one.
