Mango Smoothie

This smoothie is about as simple as it gets and it’s my new favorite snack. If you need a little detox from the chocolate craziness of this week, this will work. It calls for fresh mangos, which is fine but frozen would be easier if you are in a hurry. My Trader Joe’s for some reason has stopped carrying frozen mangos, much to my disappointment.  You can also add in just about anything, the one pictured I had added some toasted flax seeds but found out too much flax seed is no good. So go lightly with your mix-ins at first.

 I hope everyone had a good Valentine’s Day; ours was a simple family dinner out and a card exchange. Gator made some handmade gifts for my husband and me and was so proud to show them off, it was the cutest thing. Then she proceeded to eat all the candy out of mine, sigh…three year olds.

Mango Smoothie

2 ripe mangos- peeled and sliced

1 ½ cups vanilla yogurt, Greek style

Ice (I use a couple handfuls)

In a blender add vanilla yogurt, mango and ice; blend.  Makes 4 servings.

Adaptations: you can add nuts, flax seeds, substitute nonfat/lofat yogurt and use frozen mangos.

Recipe from: the south beach diet book

    Can I freeze the smoothie ?

    1. I dont see why you couldnt but to be honest I havent tried it. The only concern I would have is what the texture might turn out like but it would be worth a shot. Let me know how it goes.

  3. Love the photography! The smoothies look yum!
