This Strawberry Mango Smoothie is filled with fruits and flavour, 5 ingredients and will transport you to a tropical country this summer!
Greetings from sunny June! Yesterday we went to the beach for the first time in over two months and when I say I enjoyed it, I thoroughly enjoyed it. In my last post I mentioned that the beach is one of my favourite places; it’s a place that promises to be peaceful, calming and full of the best breeze you can get anywhere.
Where’s your favourite relaxation spot? If you follow me on Instagram then you would’ve seen my post of the delicious fried fish and festival and the lobster that we eventually took home. Not only was the meal amazing and beyond my expectations, in typical Jamaican style we were also served with a slice of mango, watermelon and pineapple. Before touching my fish I went straight to the mango – kind of in love with mango. There are several kinds of mangoes here in Jamaica; my favourite being East Indian and Julie mangoes, thanks to their sweetness! If you get the opportunity please enjoy a fresh one over frozen chunks; you will not regret it.
As soon as we got back home, I was in mango fever mode. Two mangoes and several strawberries later, this strawberry mango smoothie was born! I wanted to create something that allowed the pure taste of the mango and the strawberry to shine through. You will definitely feel as if you were on the beach with us when you take a sip of this smoothie.
If you can get fresh mangoes then that is definitely the way to go – the flavour is irreplaceable. The strawberries can be frozen, and are actually better for the consistency of the smoothie. I specify sweet mangoes because the greek yogurt makes the mangoes creamy enough for a smoothie without affecting the taste, and so if your mangoes aren’t that sweet you can adjust the taste by adding a bit of honey or agave nectar. Along with the strawberry layer, which is a great addition to the mango, this smoothie is definitely the burst of flavour that you need.
