Smoothie Sunday: Blackberry Mango Smoothie
I have to admit I don’t have a ton to say about the creation of this smoothie. I had a mango left from a dinner I made earlier in the week that was very ripe and needed to be used, and the blackberries were starting to be ripe in Erik’s parents’ yard. I wasn’t sure how the combination would work, but it turned out pretty yummy! I felt like I had to use more honey than I usually do in smoothies, but the blackberries were pretty tart, so that’s probably why. If you have sweeter blackberries you likely won’t need as much sweetener. I have to say, mangos are one of my favorite fruits to use in smoothies. I really enjoy mango flavor, but just eating mangos can be kind of messy and sometimes you end up with mango fibers stuck between your teeth which is incredibly frustrating. Now that I’ve taken up enough room rambling…on to the recipe!
Blackberry Mango Smoothie:
- 1 mango, skin and pit removed
- ½ cup blackberries
- ¼ cup vanilla yogurt
- 6 ice cubes
- Pinch of salt
- Honey to taste
Put the first 4 ingredients into your blender and blend until smooth. Add salt and honey and pulse until well combined. The amount of honey you’ll need to add depends greatly on the ripeness and sweetness of your fruits (and personal taste of course). Pour into a tall glass and enjoy!
