Imagine crunchy chips that have next to nothing calories, taste like green mango, and actually help you lose weight. Meet the Amazing Mango Bark! They are dehydrated mango peels that become little crunchy miracles that you can reach for as a snack.
Peel from 1 Mango
Preheat oven to 200 degrees F
Place mango peel on half sheet pan with parchment paper or silpat (preferred) and dehydrate for 2 hours or until peel is crunchy and dry.
Only use organic mangoes to avoid dealing with pesticides that may be found on the skins.
We found non-serrated vegetable peelers give you the cleanest cuts. Serrated peelers tore through the skin, taking along mango fibers with them.
Half-sheet pans and silpats work best when dehydrating in the oven. The peels do not stick to the silicone mat and they are very easy to remove. With parchment paper you run the risk of getting paper stuck to the peels.
Avoid using over ripe or rotting peels, they will not cut clean and wont be useable for bark. Best to use red, ripe mangoes.
