Sweet ripe mangos need little help in the smoothie department. We blended ours with a little low-fat milk and yogurt for tang, sort of like a mango lassi. It's a welcome pick-me-up in the morning but also refreshing to sip alongside spicy foods or as an after-dinner dessert alternative.

You're likely to find one of six types of mango throughout the year, but no matter what variety is available, you want to be sure to use a ripe mango for blending. It should give slightly, like a ripe peach or avocado. Cut the sides away from the pit (check out this simple mango cutting technique for more insight) and shave off any additional flesh at an angle.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped ripe mango

  • ½ cup low-fat milk

  • ½ cup ice

  • ¼ cup plain low-fat yogurt

  • 1 tablespoon honey

Directions

  1. Place the mango, milk, ice, yogurt, and honey in a blender.

  2. Blend until smooth and frothy.

    Mango Smoothie
    Mango is a great source of vitamins A and C, as well as filling fiber, so drinking a whole one in a morning smoothie is starting your day on the right nutritional foot. Use almond milk in place of cow’s milk for a dairy-free version. If you like your smoothies extra cold, freeze the mango overnight before blending. Get the Recipe:Mango Smoothie. Grant Cornett
