Nancy's Simple Mango Puree

 My fabulous friend and former wife, Nancy, shared this recipe on Facebook. Like I always say, I'm not sure where she got the recipe, but since she's the one who brought it to me, she's the one who gets the credit! It's so easy, there's practically nothing to it. As soon as I read it, I knew that I needed to steal it an officially share it with everyone. Sharing is caring!
Thanx Nance!

2 mangoes, diced
2 tbs water
1/3 sugar

Simply place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve it over plain Greek yogurt, use it to top a dessert, add to a smoothie, or just eat it plain.

Joey's Tips:
I'm seeing this poured over a slice of pound cake, cheesecake, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or even a delicate panna cotta. You could even use it as a base to make a fabulous vinaigrette.
When you buy fresh mangoes, be sure you get the ones that are mostly red and give a little when you press with your thumb. If they're green, they're not ripe yet. You can speed the ripening process by placing unripe mangoes in a paper bag and storing at room temperature for a day or two.
