Mango Smoothie

And now for that simple and refreshing mango smoothie I mentioned here earlier.
As you probably know, you can throw almost any combination
of fruit and milk ingredients into the blender
and make a smoothie!
Nothing too hard about it.
But just in case you need a fresh idea,
fresh combination . . .
we just loved this one.
2 cups milk
(or a combination of milk & yogurt)
1 fresh, very ripe mango,
 peeled and cut in pieces
1 cup (mild tasting) frozen fruit
(I used the Sunshine Fruit Blend from Costo)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-2 teaspoons sweetener
(I used xylitol)
1 teaspoon oatstraw powder
(an herb that builds strong bones)
1 teaspoon chia seeds
(very high in iron)
Blend til smooth. Add a little more milk if the blend is too thick.
Serve and Enjoy! Serves approximately 2 adults and 2 children. 😉
Happy Healthy Eating!

    Oh, it sounds absolutely delicious! It's such a HOT day here, and something like that would be perfect today. But I don't have a mango… That will have to be on the shopping list. :)

    I've had your blog open for probably an hour now, and I've loved listening to your beautiful selection of music! I was going to comment right away, but Zoe has a friend over today, so lunch, clean-up, and a bit of cleaning the house came inbetween. A fun way to clean the house, I think – listening to your music!

    AND, I thought this was adorable – Zoe heard the music playing and came to see what was on the computer. "That's Dietrich's mommy!" she told her little friend. Upon being questioned who D is, she replied, "He's my BOYfriend. I have lots of boyfriends." 😀 Oh, these days of innocence, when a boyfriend is simply a boy who is her friend! May these last many, many years!! :)
