I finally found bigger and riper mangos at the supermarket. Summer is the best for fresh fruit. Since the mangos were really ripe, they were unbelievable sweet. I paired them with papa for a monday morning smoothie. Browsing online, I found that most of the mango+papaya smoothie combos have yogurt, milk or coconut milk. Since both the papaya and the mango are fruits that are often used in smoothies to add creaminess, I wanted to avoid the milks and yogurt all around… So water it was. And a little bit of orange juice.
The result was a creamy smoothie, I popped it into the fridge for a couple of hours (while I went to the gym) and it was ready for when I went upstairs to the office. We hope you love it!
