Mangoes that we get in the U.S are not as tasty as the ones we get in India. I still buy them, but then I don’t want to feel the disappointment when it is eaten by itself. That’s when a smoothie is a great idea! Nothing fancy, I just combined it with dates and some coconut milk that I wanted to use up.
I am a little late for the virtual party at The Novice Gardener’s place, Fiesta Friday #18, this time hosted by Mr. Fitz of Cooking With Mr. Fitz and Justine of Eclectic odds n sods. But here I am with a simple, but filling smoothie. Thank you, Angie, Mr. Fitz and Justine!
