Death by mango? I’ve eaten a total of five mangos in the space of a week. So drippy, juicy, totally alluring and they make everything from a smoothie, to curry, to a wonderful fruity salsa incredible!
They’re up there with strawberries as one of my favourite fruits of all time. (Pineapples and cherries make up the top four…order dependent on my mood and how awesome the individual fruit itself is!)
Strawberry and mango goes incredibly well together. Positively scrumptious if you ask me….a match made in heaven!
This smoothie combines the two wonders…the strawberries simply blended to a puree, the mango blended with banana, coconut milk, vanilla and a date for a little extra sweetness. I also added in some maca powder for an additional nutritional boost but it’s totally optional.
The smoothie is simply about making the most of two of my favourites, swirled together and enjoyed with one of my new glass dharma straws!!! I waited far too long to purchase one of these! Delivered all the way from the States within a week…it’s amazing how the simplest of things prove such a novelty!
I was like a kid at Christmas when they arrived and couldn’t wait to whip up a smoothie to try them out!
A thick creamy rich naturally sweetened smoothie…a glass of summer sunshine!
Smoothie season is back in full swing!
