Okay, I'll type fast. LOL
they are excellent dehydrated, you can slice them and dehydrate, and use later, they are delicious. You can freeze into bite size pieces and just munch, you can freeze and make ice cream, mmmmmmm deffinitely a plus there.
You can make mango fruit lether again, very tasty, one of my favorites, or you can make mango mash, which is banana and mango in the food processor made in to a pudding, or you can plop into ice cube trays and makes into ice cubes, that you can put into smoothies, or into fruit juice, keeps the juice cold, but as they melt they add more fruity flavor.
you can make pop cicles you can make mango face mask, mmmm so sweet and soft.
Delicious. mangooooooossssssss. mmmmmmm
Sorry, got carried away thinking of them, maybe I better go to the store, now.

Cut them into chunks, then freeze. Then make the most DELICIOUS dessert:
Mango vanilla sorbet
10 oz. frozen mango chunks (the size of a 10 oz. bag of frozen fruit from Whole Foods...that's what I used)
Agave to taste, and as necessary to blend
a few drops vanilla extract
Blend in the food processor until smooth and delicious!!!!

If you scoop the cheeks out of the skins, and any other "meat" you can get, and freeze in bags (equal to what your family needs) - ours is 3 mangoes per bag. When ready to use I nearly defrost - just enough to get a big knife through - and cut the semi frozen mango into bite size pieces then. Doing it this way the mango retains some of its texture and shape and it can be served as is or even let it defrost even further. The longer you keep the mango after defrosting the sloshier it is going to get but first up it is a great way to serve mango with some sort of resemblance to fresh mango in texture.
