Mango Chai Zucchini Bread

This is a delicious bread and very easy to make – you can either bake it, or you can cook it in the slow cooker. Baked, it has a crispy caramelized top and a tender crumb; while cooked in the slow cooker, it is super moist and soft. If you don’t have access to fresh mangos, you may easily substitute in ripe nectarines.
