Mango Smoothie


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.

Mango Smoothie

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


  • Assemble ingredients into blender- make sure to put liquids in first so that it is at the bottom near the blade
  • Blend on ’salsa’ or similar setting (low) until nearly blended
  • Pulse a few more times after completing the ‘low’ setting (wait a second or two for it to let air out) to homogenize the mixture
  • Pour into a glass (you may have to tap the blender as you pour to coax out the thick mixture)
  • Top with freshly-cut mango chunks if desired
  • 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.
