Mango Kick + Other Faves = Smile at your Smoothie

Per the title and previous post (and the mango salsa in my fridge), I’m on a mango kick, so the other day when I popped into Trader Joe’s to get my favorite tofu, I did my normal mosey about the aisles and decided to get some frozen mango cubes. Well, that was a good idea because it bore the most delicious of smoothies, complete with all the tastiness you might expect from the likes of a Jamba Juice without all the sneaky calories.

Ingredients

  • 1 c frozen mangoes, cubed
  • 1 c sweetened vanilla almond milk (I use Sprout’s brand)
  • zest of 1 orange
  • juice of 1 orange
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 cup ice
  • 5 mint leaves

Directions

Throw it all in a blender and pulse to your desired thickness.

The mint is the kicker. Perfect for the summer heat that has all but settled here in San Diego!

  1. I’m all over mango lately as well – have to enjoy the fresh ones while they’re available – and thank goodness for frozen!
