The weather is finally getting warmer, maybe even too warm for my liking, and it calls for more smoothies! You might remember a few weeks ago I decided to go on a hiatus from my self-imposed smoothie binge, but now I’m back!
My parents brought a large case of mangoes with them when they came to visit. I know, I know, you’re probably wondering, “Why mangoes?” You see, if there’s anything that brings people of the Indian Sub-Continent together, it’s mangoes. We LOVE mangoes!
We don’t get very ripe mangoes in the area that we live in. So my parents did what any responsible South Asian parent would do, and brought a case with them. We sliced a few, we made juice with a few, and I still have a few leftover. Since I’ve been making smoothies for breakfast and post-workout, I decided to make a mango smoothie, from this recipe with a few adaptations. It was DELICIOUS! The mangoes and orange juice work so well together, I can’t believe I didn’t think of it myself!
