Because there’s nothing better than a cup full of fruity goodness, I’m going to show you how to make a mango smoothie. It’s as easy as 1-2-3.
Before I met Josh he lived in a remote part of Brazil for two years. For part of that time he was in the jungle and lived next to a mango tree. That’s where his love affair with mangos began. Want to make his day? Pick one up at the grocery store. It’s the little things. Before him, I never really ate mangoes. They weren’t on my radar. Plus I wasn’t really sure how to cut them. I think one of the things that scares people off about this awesome fruit is not knowing how to cut them. Because Josh loves them so much, I got a mango slicer. It makes things that much easier.
Once you get the cutting/slicing down, you are good to go!
You don’t need many ingredients to make this yummy recipe. Here’s how to make a mango smoothie:
- 1 mango, chopped
- 1 banana, chopped
- 1 c. nonfat vanilla yogurt
- ½ c. crushed ice
- 1 cup orange juice
- Chop mango and banana.
- Add each ingredient to blender.
- Pour and serve!
