Mangoes are crazy expensive these days, at least in Nova Scotia. Our produce prices are ridiculous! As a result, I have had to become a very picky shopper and wait until foods go on sale or are marked down. Luckily I found two mangoes were being sold for $1.29, half price. Thus, the mango madness has spread from my kitchen to my blog…
After I peeled my mango for my tutorial I of course had to eat it! I have shared my Banana Mango Smoothie recipe with you but here is another mango smoothie, Strawberry Mango! I put in the peeled mango pieces, cleaned and chopped five strawberries and added one very ripe banana. For liquid I added cranberry juice, plain yogurt, vanilla and honey. May the blitzing commence!
Delicious! This is the time of year to scope out the deals on produce and make the most of them. In the summer there is nothing more satisfying than a smoothie. Cool, comforting, flavourful, healthy and filling. The perfect treat to beat the heat.
What kind of smoothie do you want me to try next? I am open to suggestions!
I have a tropical banana smoothie just about every morning. You are right-there is something so refreshing about starting a warm day with a smoothie!

You’re totally making me want to break out my blender and get smoothie-ing!
Smoothies! Yum. I’ve been having them all the time lately. I want to find some kind of smoothie I can add watermelon to. Care to try?
Oo, first raspberries, and then try something with frozen watermelon!
I say frozen watermelon because I remember many years ago that the ice cream parlour I worked at brought in fresh fruit ice cream (think yogen fruz but nobody did that yet), and the watermelon was nice. I’d love to try it in a smoothie!
For my birthday I’ve asked for a good blender, one that will stand up to daily ice workouts.

How about a Veggie smoothie, for when my sweet tooth isn’t aching! 😉 I can never seem to blend a nice veggie smoothie, I know you can Suzie! 😉
Ps. I burnt my whole wheat english muffins too. I laughed when I took them outta the oven. Laughs, and horrible horrible curse words.. lol

i was having banana and blueberry smoothies until my diabetes doctor told me to stop eating bananas 🙁 so if you have an alternative that gives the same consistancy i would love to hear!
I have a smoothie after my running, usually a mix of fruits. I love mangoes in my smoothies too, and after much reluctance on my part, I finally bought a bag of frozen ones…they are perfect for smoothies and no chopping! I usually let the frozen fruit sit in the blender for about 15-20 minutes to soften a bit, makes it easier to blend the smoothie!
mmmmm – this sounds so delicious! There were mangos in a fruit salad at a potluck yesterday – delish!! I’d like to see summer fruit recipes – as they come! Love frozen blueberries & raspberries in smoothies or on my granola.

I make a lot of strawberry/banana/soy milk smoothies…I’ll have to add mango!
Green smoothies Suzie!! I’ve been trying so many recipes to try and get my leafy greens, but they always end up looking like green sludge…not very appetizing. (I threw a couple strawberries in, to sweeten it up?….duh? everyone knows that green and red make Brown….couldn’t drink that!
I got some mangoes at the store yesterday; I went to Food Basics and they were 79 cents each! They’re still kind of hard so are sitting out to ripen.
I’m going to try my hand at a homemade mango lassi first! N and I love them when we go out for Indian food, and they’re so expensive, I’d love to see if I can make some at home.
