Smoothie Sunday: Cherry Mango Smoothie
Sometimes I give a lot of thought to my smoothie flavor combinations. Other times the ideas arise mainly from, “I need to use up this fruit before it goes bad.” This smoothie happened to come from the latter category. Luckily it happened to turn out really yummy! It became one of my new favorite smoothies. I realize cherries are kind of a pain in the ass to use in smoothies because you have to remove the pit. If you plan on using them a lot you can buy frozen pitted cherries and use those. If not you’re going to have to bite the bullet and pit fresh ones. I admit this does add a bit of prep time to this smoothie, especially since the mango isn’t super fast to dismantle either. But I think it’s worth it.
Cherry Mango Smoothie:
- 1 mango, diced
- 1 cup of cherries, pitted
- 5-6 ice cubes
- 1 5.3 oz container vanilla yogurt
- Pinch of salt
- Sugar to taste
In a blender, blend the mango, cherries and ice until mostly smooth. Add in the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth and well mixed. Taste along the way to check if more salt or sugar is needed. Drink and enjoy!
