I have always loved berry smoothies but since the beginning of this week I’ve developed some sort of a mango smoothie-mania.
I would often use mango as a salad ingredient or occasionally for a fool dessert but not so much as a base for a fruit shake … well, not anymore :)
I found out that MANGO blends perfectly with yogurts (plain or vanilla). Try it and you will end up with a superb, smooth and delicate pulp … that feels like a soft cloud in your mouth ….
Add a bit of muesli and whirl it all for a thick drinkable breakfast. Add a bit of crunchy cereals and enjoy a healthy dessert. Add a bit of honey and a few drops of lemon and simply drink it on its own.
These mango smoothies are super healthy: no additional sugar, no full fat milk or full yogurt, no ice-creams added!
My next smoothie adventure? I’m thinking: green and soy milk.
