Sweet and Savory Mango Spears

Looking for a sweet summer treat that’s not a popsicle? Look no further than these Sweet and Savory Mango Spears! They are very easy to make and would be good at any time of day!

I love a good flavor combination, and the sweetness of mango works perfectly with the crunchy cereal coating to make a dessert that is healthy and satisfying!

Sweet and Savory Mango Spears

You could use these spears in a lot of different ways- as a party appetizer, dessert, afternoon snack, even breakfast!

The recipe is super simple- great for getting kids involved. I suggest setting up an assembly line. You can ground up the Honey Bunches of Oats ahead of time, and then you do the mango slicing, and let the kids insert the sticks, squeeze the juice, and sprinkle them with the cereal mixture.

Here’s all the details:

WOW! Your blog has sure gone through a massive transformation. Looks fantastic, and still completely recognizable as yours! Great job, love the new look. Sorry if you changed a while ago, I have been absent from the blog world for a bit.
