Ingredients

  • 2 Mangos
  • 4 Kiwi
  • 2 Tbl sugar optional
  • 1 cup yogurt

Instructions

  • Add enough liquid to the blender so the fruit blends easily. It could be water or fruit juice.  In this recipe, I chose yogurt because it provides a rich and thick texture that is pretty desirable for a smoothie.
  • Add the fruit that you are going to use. In this recipe, our ingredient of interest is mango. Therefore, that is our base fruit. Ideally, you should mash the base fruit first with the liquid.  
  • After you mix the base fruit and the liquid, you can add other ingredients to provide another layer of flavor to your smoothie. In this recipe, we will be using kiwi. This particular fruit has souring properties that could perfectly balance the sweet flavor of mango.
    Peel off the skin of the kiwi and let the blender mash its flesh together with the initial mixture.

Notes

I usually freeze the mango first before using it in the smoothie. If you don't want to use ice cubes, then the use of frozen fruits is an excellent alternative. It gives the frozen texture that we want our smoothies to acquire. Moreover, it also preserves the nutritional contents of the food.
You can freeze the mango by peeling its skin and slicing the flesh into cubes. Put the cubes on a cookie and freeze for 8 to 12 hours. It should work well for your smoothie because it is already cold! There is no need for ice cubes anymore!
