Honey Mango Smoothie Recipe - Yes, Another One!

Here's another yummy Mango Smoothie I whipped up the other day with variations to one I posted a few months ago. I made this one without my usual addition of plain low fat Greek yogurt, so maybe it could be classified more officially as a slushy  but, call it what you will, it was delicious, very refreshing, and low in calories.

Honey Mango Smoothie Recipe:



Ingredients:
  • 1 cup of chopped mango - fresh or frozen
  • 3 oz of Chobani Greek Yogurt - plain or vanilla (actually yogurt can be optional)
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 tsp honey
  • a squirt of lime juice
  • half a dozen ice cubes

Combine in your Smoothie BlenderProcess until smooth. Serve immediately, and enjoy!

Sometimes, I think adding dairy (the yogurt, in this case) causes the mango to lose some of its rich flavor and sweetness, though it will obviously be a smoother, creamier consistency.  If the mango is not frozen, it will certainly blend easily without the yogurt.  The addition of the yogurt will give you more protein. I also think the lime juice helps to bring out some more flavor of the mango.
So as you can see, you can play with the options a little. No matter what you decide you like the best, this is a healthy and refreshing Honey Mango Smoothie.  Of course you can also use Florida Mangoes, but I am now sold on the Honey Mango, or Champagne Mango for its sweetness and less fiberous consistency.
