Healthier mango macadamia loaf 

What can I say about this delish mango macadamia loaf, other than you should make it as soon as you can! Mango is my absolute fave Summer fruit, and I think mango season is way too short!

You’ll find that most of my recipes involving fruit use bananas, strawberries and mangos. I do actually love most fruit, but these three are on the highest rotation in our house!

And in case you’re wondering – no, I don’t worry about the sugar content – because it’s fruit. Besides natural sugars, fruit also has plenty of nutrients, and you need to consider the big picture.

Like the other foods that you’re eating with that particular meal. All of the meals you’re eating during the day, and even throughout the week.

Because looking at the big picture is how you eat a balanced diet, not by labelling a single food or a single ingredient as good or bad, high or low in certain nutrients, etc.

So, getting back to the mango macadamia loaf, I suggest you make this with fresh mango while you can. My top tip for enjoying mangos as long as you can is to buy up at the end of Summer, and freeze them. Just roughly chop them and portion them into freezer bags. 

Buy in bulk from your local farmers markets or wherever there are specials on, and you’ll have mangos on hand well into Autumn.

I also enjoy making muffins from this recipe and I swap the macadamia nuts for walnuts.
