Smoothie Sunday: Avocado Mango Smoothie
As has been mentioned before here, I’m a big fan of avocados. They’re good for you, and taste yummy. That being said, I don’t usually eat avocados for breakfast. But smoothie Sunday seemed like a good chance to change that. I added mango as a second flavor, since avocado and mango are paired in things like salsas and burritos. The tang/acid of the mango helps cut through the creaminess of the avocado. Since it’s so creamy I used the avocado like how I use the yogurt in most of my smoothies.
Avocado Mango Smoothie:
- 1 mango, skin and seed removed
- 1 avocado, skin and pit removed
- 6 ice cubes
- ¼ – ½ cup orange juice
- 1 tbsp mango chutney (optional)
- Pinch of salt
- Honey to taste
Blend the first 3 ingredients in a blender until smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend well, tasting and adjusting salt and honey as needed. Start with ¼ cup of orange juice, but this smoothie is pretty thick, so add more as necessary until it reaches desired texture. Once everything is to your liking, pour into a tall glass and enjoy!
