This mango recipe is also a great first finger food for baby. Simply heat a mango for 5 minutes as directed above, add mint and chop into small pea size chunks. This will store for 5 days in the fridge or 2 months in the freezer. I store my small finger foods in ice cube trays just like purees, popping out 1 cube and defrosting when I need some fast finger foods.
