This Skinny Mango Smoothie is like sunshine in a glass! Lovely summery drink and its guilt free..try my low fat Mango Smoothie for that extra taste without those extra calories..
This summery Mango Smoothie is the drink you’re going to want to have all day, everyday this summer! I had this like twice in a day the first time I made it..It’s that good and seriously easy. The best part you ask? It’s LOW FAT..talk about having your cake and keeping it too.. 😀 If you’re not a yogurt smoothie fan (like me) then hang on.. because we ain’t using yogurt in this one! Enjoy the pure and unperturbed taste of my favorite summer fruit..GUILT FREE with this smoothie 😀
The Indian summer is here..its not hot as usual (lucky for us) but the fruits are rolling in..The mangoes are as juicy as ever and I’ve used the ripest one I could find for this smoothie. This smoothie isn’t like the regular ones where you use yogurt (I dislike yogurt-ey taste in a smoothie) but instead I’ve made it using a very special ingredient to thicken it up. Frozen Bananas. Those two magic words have literally changed the way I work and think in the kitchen now. Frozen bananas not only thicken up the smoothie but also give out no flavor to it. Win- Win right? 😉 The mangoes mask it very nicely and its impossible to guess that there are bananas in it. You can bet on it..
A handful of ingredients and a mixer is all you need. So lets get started and make the summer drink of the year..shall we!!?
RECIPE: Skinny Mango Smoothie
Serves: 2 Time: 10 minutes
- Frozen Banana, 1 (peeled and frozen for a few hours)
- Ripe Mango, 1 Large
- Skimmed Milk, 3/4 Cup (or 180 ml)
- Vanilla Essence, 1/2 teaspoon
- Honey, 1 teaspoon
- Ice Cubes
- A good strong mixer
Blend the frozen banana in the mixer for a few minutes until it becomes white and creamy, almost like a soft serve ice cream. Like this:
Once the bananas are creamy add in all the other ingredients and mix for a few seconds (including ice cubes) until the ice is crushed and the smoothie is nice and creamy and thick.
Serve Cold on a hot summer day, by the pool or not by the pool! 🙂 Enjoy!
