I know this is a yummy treat. Does it pack a lot of calories?

Writeonbro,

Mangos have around 40 calories each. http://www.weightlossforall.com/calories-fruit.htm This is a good site for fruit calorie counting.

If you want to cut the calories in the recipe....Each tbsp of honey has about 65 calories, depending on brand. So, just omit the honey or use a low cal sugar substitute. The mango is actually sweet enough that you wont notice the flavor difference, but the texture of the salsa might be a little off.

Hm, that's not quite true. One average size mango has about 140 calories, not 40.

Nice photo! ;-)
