Hubby and I were recently on vacation in sunny Central America. At one of the resorts we stayed at we were introduced to this addictive smoothie! It’s perfect for those last few days by the pool that Summer will give us. It’s a nice refreshing treat as a healthy dessert, too!
Yellow River Smoothie
juice from 1.5 mangoes
1/2 pineapple cut into frozen chunks
I used all fresh fruit, juicing the mango just before this photo was snapped. I also cut fresh pineapple and froze it earlier in the day. I have made this before with mango & pineapple juice with ice and the ice watered it down too much. Since I didn’t add any extra sugar (the fruit is sugary enough) I didn’t want to fruit to have to compete with ice watering it down. This time I froze the pineapple and it worked perfectly!
Combine all ingredients in a blender.
Since there is not a lot of liquid in this recipe, and I used a regular blender, I had to stop midway through and mix the top chunks in with a wooden spoon then resume blending. And that’s it!
Enjoy while summer is still here!
