A Taste of Paradise

Every luscious bite of fresh mango is like an island retreat. Their unbeatable fruity flavor is just one reason to love mangos; they’re also rich in the antioxidant vitamins A and C, plus a good source of fiber. Mangos are available in stores year-round though the varieties vary from season to season. For a meal finale that’s simple to prepare, yet looks oh-so sophisticated, make our Mango-Berry Shortcakes that have a hint of fresh lemon flavor.

Lightly Sweeten

Enhance the sweetness of springtime treats, while reducing the calorie, sugar and carbohydrate content with Truvia® Baking Blend. This innovative blend of Truvia® natural sweetener and sugar delivers the taste, texture, moisture, and browning effect of sugar with 75 percent fewer calories. When substituting it into recipes, use one-half cup to replace one cup of sugar. And try their Brown Sugar Blend in recipes that call for brown sugar.

Classics with Ease

Bisquick® Heart Smart® Pancake and Baking Mix has you covered for classic dessert favorites like shortcakes, cookies, muffins and coffee cakes. Compared to regular Bisquick®, the Heart Smart® variety supplies an excellent source of calcium and is naturally low in cholesterol. As an ingredient that’s low in fat with no trans fat, it also bears the American Heart Association seal. Visit their website for more springtime recipe ideas and ways to use Bisquick® in savory recipes year-round.

Finishing Touch

Add flair to desserts with a garnish of fresh mint, a citrus twist, shredded coconut or toasted almond slices. Premium, 100 percent California-grown Diamond® Sliced Almonds are recipe-ready making quick work of sprinkling them over desserts for the finishing touch. Compared to other tree nuts, almonds supply the highest amount of six essential nutrients, along with plant-based protein, healthful monounsaturated fats, fiber and vitamin E. Give them a more intense flavor and crunchier texture by toasting them before use. Simply arrange the sliced almonds in a large, dry skillet in a single layer over medium heat just until they have browned slightly and give off a nutty aroma.
