Mango Yogurt Smoothie

Mango Yogurt SmoothieMango time! Tickle your taste buds with this simple, yet flavorful and nutritious mango yogurt smoothie.

It seemed like it took an eternity for the mangoes I received in a recent Door to Door Organics delivery to ripen. Once they did, I went to town. There were many parties in my mouth including one from this smoothie :)

Not only are mangoes delicious, they impart some nice health benefits as well. Those health benefits include:

  • Boosts your immune system
  • Alkalizing effect on the body
  • Good for your skin (internally and externally)
  • Promote good eyesight
  • Contain health promoting antioxidants
  • Support healthy digestion
  • Support healthy cholesterol levels

One ripe mango renders about one cup of mango. The recipe below calls for 1/2 cup mango. Feel free to use the full cup. I didn’t because the sugar content would have been higher than I like.

There are a bunch of add-ons listed to take this smoothie in several different directions depending on your preferences and what you have on hand. However, I didn’t include a single add-on and it was quite tasty. Opt for a plain, whole milk or full fat-yogurt. I used a plain, homemade yogurt. Greek yogurt is also a good option. Enjoy!
