Mango season is upon us. This is definitely my favorite time of year. We still have tangerines and strawberries in season, and with this little overlap I am happy. Do you have a favorite fruit, or are you like me that changes with the season? Now, I am waiting for some of the mangos to ripen enough to make a blueberry mango smoothie. Or maybe a blueberry mango and tangerine… See? The possibilities are endless. I had to start off with this Strawberry Mango Smoothie. I just had no choice. Too much deliciousness not to share.
Last week was crazy and this week a bit irregular because of Holy Week break, but I have been keeping true to my word: smoothie or sit down for a proper breakfast. Lately it’s been more of taking the smoothie to go, since I’ve been busy at work, but glad also I’ve been going to yoga. Yoga is good. Specially the afternoon class twice a week.
I am working my way through a cookbook to see what goodies I can make for TFK. I think we need a proper cake or cookie soon. Don’t you think so? Let us know if you guys are looking for a particular recipe!
Ok back to our smoothie, this is as always, very easy and I found this recipe at Two Peas and Their Pod. Like Maria mentions in her post, if you want to thin down the smoothie you can always add water or milk. I did add a little bit, but not because it was too thick, but because I like it thinner than the usual smoothie. Enjoy!
