A lot of the recipes in my book “Cool Smoothies” call for mango. I’m pretty sure up until this morning, I’d never tried a mango. I’ve had juices and things with that flavor, but I’ve never actually tried one! I kinda liked it! It reminded me of a pineapple, only smoother and kind of creamy. I was excited for it in this smoothie!
1 1/2 cups pineapple juice or orange juice, chilled (I used orange juice and added a couple of pineapple chunks.)
6 oz low-fat vanilla yogurt
1 banana, peeled, sliced
1 mango, peeled, sliced
I put the orange juice in the blender and each thing I added, I blended. I blended a little longer this morning hoping to get my smoothie mixed up better than I have been. I think the ingredients I used helped also. My book says it makes 1 smoothie but I got a couple out of it. It was tasty! Both kids liked it fine. A good way for me to tell if they “liked” it or not was how quickly they drink it. It didn’t take too long! WINNER!
*In general, mango is rich in vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in pre-biotic dietary fiber and contains a lot of antioxidants. If you wish to add more vitamin, minerals and fiber into your diet, then mango would be the right choice.
