Freezing Mango Puree / mango pulp is the best way to preserve fresh mangoes and use them later when mangoes are not in season. Mangoes are in season, so what are you waiting for?? Stock your freezer with homemade mango puree.
Recently, I saw a pack of mango puree /pulp in the supermarket and was astonished to find that a litre of it costs about $13 (about Rs 750) .....can you believe 750 Rs for a can of mango puree....Here in Kerala, Mango trees adorn most backyards, parks....and 1 kg of good quality mangoes cost anywhere between 40 to 60 Rs only and the fact that I have been doing this from such a long time....and when I saw the price tag on the mango puree can, I knew I had to share this.....so that you can save some money and preserve mangoes for longer time....and make mango ice cubes, mango ice cream, mango milkshake...
I made this mango puree with 2 kilo of fresh ripened mangoes and got 1 liter of puree......what you see in the container is the result of 2 kilos of pureed mangoes....pure, fresh, and no preservatives, or color added....and the best part is it can be FREEZED!! Do I need to tell you how to use them up??

Preparation Time: 10-15 min.
Mangoes: Any good quality fleshy type, 2 kilos.
Sugar: 2 cups (I used 200 ml cup).
Peel and slice the mangoes.
Put them in a blender. Top with sugar.
Blend for 2 to 3 minutes. Pour into clean and dry containers or Ziploc....Label and freeze.
So easy!! and you can save money and have mangoes when not in season...how cool is this?
After washing the mangoes, pat dry them with a kitchen towel, so that there wont be any water. Same with the containers.
If using Ziploc bags, squeeze out any air from bags and seal tightly.
