How To Chop A Mango (Without Creating A Sticky Mess)

Mangoes: cute and inoffensive on the outside, not so lovely when it comes to chopping into them.

If you've ever been faced with a mango and thought to yourself: 'How on earth do I cut this?' then you're not alone.

Similarly if you've tried to chop it in half and have been flummoxed by the large hard centre or if, like me, you once tried to squeeze your mango out of it's skin only to be covered in a sticky (albeit tasty) mango mess then - once again - you're not alone. It's more common than you think.

Mastering the method of mango slicing is, in itself, an art. So, if you're feeling fancy and have traded your usual berry and banana selection for a slice of tropical heaven then let the above video be your mango-chopping-saviour (it really is bookmark-worthy).

Amen to that.
