Mango Smoothie


Mango season is just about over.  This is one of the ways we were enjoying them this summer.  They never lasted long so it was always difficult to get a picture of them.  Bilal has been loving smoothies this summer. It all started with the Green Monster.  They are a great way to get him to have some extra fruit.  I love the citrus flavour that the orange juice brings.  I find these smoothies are best if had immediately.  They thicken up while sitting in the fridge.

Mango Smoothie
Adapted from Cook's Illustrated

3 Altafulo mangos, peeled and diced
1 banana
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup milk
3 tbsp sugar
3 ice cubes

Put all ingredients in a blender and puree.  I don't have a blender so I put everything in a jug and use my immersion blender to puree it.

  13. I've been trying to leave you comments for quite some time now but for some reason I'm not able to. I tried with the ricekrispie post as well.
    Anyway, this shake looks amazing and it's honestly making me crave one :)
