For a while now I’ve been wanting to make a mango smoothie, and today’s warm weather brought me to decide “yes, today is the day”. A friend gave me some lovely mango pieces in a fruit salad, and their gorgeous colour- they were quite clearly Ataulfo or Indian- were rather inspiring.
Ingredients (makes 1 small glass):
- 1/4 cup Orange-mango juice
- 1/2 cup frozen organic mango chunks
- 1/3 cup fresh mango pieces (from my friend Andrew) :)
- 1/3 cup organic vanilla low-fat yogurt
- Five drops of honey
The texture was great- thinner than my last concoction, the glass of which the boyfriend had to tap on vigorously to coax out the smoothie- and quite delicious. I had been craving mango since the sun peaked its head through my window the day before, and this certainly did the trick rather nicely! I also learned my lesson and put all the liquids at the bottom, leaving the frozen mango chunks- which, out of paranoia, I dutifully chopped- at the very top, allowing the blender to conduct its work in peace.
