Mango Smoothie

Sweet ripe mangos need little help in the smoothie department. We blended ours with a little lowfat 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 6 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 and shave off any additional flesh at an angle. Then gnaw on the pit for a real treat.
