Mango Banana-Cream Smoothie
Yields: 2 servings
Prep time: 10 min
Total time: 15 min
Calories: 189 calories per serving
1 fresh ripe
1/2 cup cold light coconut milk
1/2 cup cold low-fat milk
1/4 teaspoon pure rum extract
8 to 10 ice cubes
When choosing a mango, pick one that is plump and heavy for its size. Most
importantly, the mango should be fragrant when held near your nose.
Preparing and Cutting Mango:
Using a vegetable peeler or shape knife, peel
off and discard the skin of the mango. There is a large pit that’s called a
stone inside the mango. Cut mango into slices from the sides, around the
stone. Once the knife reaches the hard mango stone, it’s time to turn the
mango and slice from the other side of the mango. Keep doing this until you
finish slicing the mango, and the only thing left is the mango stone. Cut
mango into smaller chunks. Before
throwing out the mango stone, you might want to eat the mango pulp around
it, as there is lots of mango left (this is what I do).
Place the mango, banana, coconut milk, milk, and rum extract
in your blender. Process until well combined.
Add the ice cubes and continue blending until smooth and creamy.
Serve in tall glass. Enjoy!
