  • 2 ripe mangoes (like Champagne Mangoes), peeled and cubed
  • 1 lemon, juiced (zest of lemon may be reserved and used too)
  • 3/4 cup sugar, or to taste


  1. In a medium saucepan, place the cubed mangoes and cook for 3-5 minutes on medium heat, stirring frequently. Gently mash the mangoes to release its juices. Add the lemon juice and continue to cook for another 5 minutes.

    Add the sugar and cook for another 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened and looks glossy. When you're happy with the consistency transfer to a bowl and cool completely. I place the bowl in an ice bath so it cools down faster.

    Transfer to a sterilized jam jar if not using right away. Keep in the fridge.

Recipe Notes

Note: You can opt to zest the lemon and add the zest with the juice for extra lemony goodness!

Adjust the sugar if you want it sweeter.
