Mangoes are arguably the lifeblood of Guimaras Island. And really, who are we to question it? After all, if the island can have a whole festival dedicated solely for the celebration of mangoes, then that is a god indication of why the fruit itself has been constantly cited as one of the best reasons to discover Guimaras!
But of course, some people feel that only eating mangoes as they are–sweet, sticky, and all-around delicious!–can be kind of boring. Thankfully, there are many ways to make sure that you can try out different varieties in enjoying your mangoes as much as knowing that you can also enjoy your seafood either steamed or grilled! Read below to know some ideas on how you could consume mangoes!
Surely, this item has to make sense? You will be going to Guimaras Island, a little place in the Philippines which is a country that is quite notorious for having the hottest and most humid weather around. So, what’s the best way to enjoy your stay in Guimaras, then? Well, it’s by having a cool drink at hand, and none can be more refreshing than drinking mango shake that is sourced directly from the island!
Of course, there are also other “liquid” forms of mango that you can enjoy in Guimaras like mango beer or mango ice cream (don’t argue). But for your money’s worth, the refreshing nature of the mango shake is something that just can’t be beaten!
Filipinos love the sweet stuff. With the way mangoes are revered here, it should come as no surprise that Guimarasnons have a pretty sophisticated palate when it comes to the sweets. So, if you combine mangoes with, say, cake, then what do you get?
Well, this is where the delicious mango float gets created! It’s not exactly a “cake” per se as much as it is a dessert made with graham crackers, a favorite staple among Filpinos because of its cheap price.
It also helps that it can be very easy to prepare too, which lends itself well to the low-cost mentality of Guimarasnons willing to prepare food for less resources! If you still have not tried it out, then we can guarantee that you’ll have a treat with it!
