21. Here's how:
Edited on Tue Apr-14-09 12:31 PM by Xipe Totec
Take a ripe mango, and stick a fork on the stem side.

Then, score the skin with a sharp knife, then peel back the skin.

Now holding the mango by the fork, slice the flesh from the pit sliding the knife along the pit.

Eat the slices.

Or, better yet, drop the slices in a blender, add crushed ice, sugar, a little bit of milk, and blend into a nice mango milk shake.
