Mango Paradise Smoothie


I recently made a delicious new smoothie combo that has really got me in the mood for summer…your turn Mother Nature, we’re all waiting. Despite the temperature outside, you can imagine you’re sitting on a tropical island as you drink this Mango Paradise Smoothie.


Because most of the ingredients are super juicy, there’s not much that goes into this smoothie:


I don’t often buy mangos, and truthfully I didn’t buy this one. I came home from parents house with it recently, after cleaning out the produce they had in their fridge before they went out of town…score! Anyways, mangos are daunting to me, they’re big, clunky and have an odd-shaped pit. I still couldn’t give you nicely diced mango, but I can show you how to get the fruit out for this smoothie. Basically, it helps to keep the mango on its end when you are peeling (with a paring knife) and cutting the fruit off.

Next, give it all whirl in your trusty Vitamix and you’re good to go!
