I must admit I have never purchased a Mango before. I’ve eaten Mango flavored items but have never actually cooked, or created a recipes with the delicious smelling fruit. That is why I was excited to receive a shipment of Mangos and an awesome cookbook with some great ideas on how to prepare and cook with Mangos: Mango Eats & Treats.
Did you know that mangos contain over 20 different vitamins and minerals and that one cup of mangos is only 100 calories? These are both great reasons for incorporating mangos into your family’s eating schedule. Honey and I looked through our cookbook together and found some delicious recipes like: Mango Bread, Mango macadamia Caramel Rolls, and Little Chica Mango Chicken. In the end we decided we wanted to make something quick, cool, and tasty and decided to make a Mango Smoothie.
- 2 ripe mangos, peeled, pitted, and diced
- ½ cup ice cubes
- ⅓ cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
- 2 tbsps fresh squeezed orange juice
- Combine all ingredients in a blender
- Blend until smooth
- Serve immediately
Honey had a blast helping me back our Mango Smoothie Recipe, especially since she got to to it all herself why I worked the video camera!
