The tropics in a glass.
I wasn’t a huge mango fan until recently. I think that partially came from the fact that it can be an intimidating fruit.
How do I cut it? Do I peel it? How the heck do I know if it’s ripe enough to eat? HELP!
After some trail and error, I finally got the hang of it, and now mangos rock my world! For those of your still scared of the fresh mango, Mango.org gives you all the “how-tos” and steps Also check out your local store for frozen mango chunks, they are all ready to hop into your blender for smoothies like this!
Now on to the smoothie! This fun combo of banana and mango will surely have your taste buds doing a happy jig! So sit back, chill out and enjoy this tasty smoothie all summer long!
Note: If you do not have frozen fruit to use for the smoothies, fresh fruit will work just fine. If using fresh fruit, make sure to add a handful of ice to the other ingredients before blending. The frozen fruit just adds that cold element to make an ice cold drink.
