Watch out for Allergies

Mango allergy, especially with raw, unripe mangoes is common in some individuals. Immediate reactions include itchiness at the angle of the mouth, lips, and tip of the tongue. In some people, the reactions can be severe, with manifestations like swelling of the lips, ulceration at the mouth angles, respiratory difficulty, vomiting, and diarrhea. Therefore, people with known case of mango fruit allergy may have to avoid eating them.

      Hi, these are very good recipes. I mostly prepare the juice and enjoy it with my sons. The other ones are not familiar. Mango ice tea seems to be very great. I should try it as one of my sons loves black teas.

      Thanks for sharing these wonderful items.

      Akriti, after reading your diplomatic comment on one of the 'religious' hubs earlier I just had to check you out. Because just by those comments you wrote made me want to follow such an individual. I totally agreed with all you have said , you are a great human being just by some of those words you used. That very hub inspired me to write one of my own even if I am here merely for poetry.

      Now :::: What to say about this wanderful, hubilicious and colourful hub of yours? Absolutely awesome!

      I will defo come back to these recipes, I didn't like mango growing up, then later as a young adult I tried a mango lassi and fell in love with mangoes :)

      This is great , voted up and beautiful.

      Thanks for sharing and being in this world. The world needs more people like you .

      The world needs more 'evolved' and 'accepting' people.

      Personally, i am an extremely secular person and i respect that quality in others. I have always believed that it is individuals who are virtuous/vicious and not religions. Generalizations are dangerous. Differences need to be respected. In fact i'll go so far as to say - Differences need to be celebrated :-)

      Thank you for such a thoughtful comment. Yes . do try to then get back to me. If you don't prefer mangoes, try using peaches or strawberries. That'll work too :)

      Some really useful ways in which to use a mango; never realized you could do so many things with this fruit.

      The shake and lollies look great for kids ( and big kids:) and the tea for high summer.

      Your article was laid out very well and easy to understand and I'm guessing the recipe hunters are going to love this one - very appealing and voted accordingly.

      All the Best;
