Fresh Mango Marinade for Chicken, Tofu, Fish, or Pork

Mango Season is in Full Effect!

Mangos are abundant right now and seasonal produce means:

  • Easy access – you’ll find mangos in most stores
  • Very affordable – the time to buy is now
  • Optimal nutritional value –best vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant content
  • Super fresh – they are ready to eat

We include Mangos into our food routine by having them at either breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, dessert, or in a drink.

Mangos are packed with a Nutritional Punch:

  • Over 20 different vitamins and minerals
  • 1 serving = ¾ cup
  • 1 serving provides 7% of your daily Fiber needs
  • 1 serving provides 50% of your daily Vitamin C needs
  • 1 serving provides 15% of your daily Folate and Copper needs
  • This recipe provides 27% of your daily Vitamin C needs in just 1 serving of the marinade

Make this Fresh Mango Marinade for Chicken, Tofu, Fish, or Pork recipe to celebrate the delicious taste of Mango and take advantage of all the benefits they have to offer.


This marinade is so versatile – just like Mangos. It tastes amazing over so many different proteins. And the best part is, you can cook the proteins in different ways, too.

I chose to:
Grill the chicken.
Roast the tofu.
Sautee the fish.
Bake the pork.

You can cook the proteins any way your heart desires and it’s so savory and sweet when paired with the Fresh Mango Marinade – which is such a nice combination.

While the protein is cooking, heat the marinade to drizzle back onto the meat after it’s done cooking.

*Pro-Tip: I also use this marinade for roasting vegetables or even as a salad dressing.

It’s that tasty and you have options.

Get on the bandwagon and enjoy your Mango today – the time is right and they’re ready for your next feast.
