This simple and delicious mango yogurt recipe is perfect for a healthful snack. This recipe gets its bold flavor from the mango purée and honey. 


  • ½ fresh mango
  • ⅛ cup mango purée or applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or organic raw honey
  • 1 pinch cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon cardamom
  • ¾ cup low-fat vanilla yogurt


  • Cut the mango lengthwise on each side of the pit.
  • Cut each half into cups inside the skin, then remove the cubes with a paring knife. In a mixing bowl, place the cubed mango and the fruit purée.
  • Add the maple syrup and the spices. Add the yogurt and blend together well by hand or with a hand mixer. You can also do this in a food processor for a smooth finish.
  • Serve for breakfast with fruit, granola, and hot cereal – or as a creamy sauce or a cooling side dish with an entrée.
