Saturdeeeeeeee! Saturdeee smoothieeeeee!

It’s not every Saturday I post a recipe, but this smoothie is just too good not to share! Mangoes and peaches are two of my favorite smoothie-ing fruit. Blending them up together with coconut milk makes for an ever-so-pleasant way to rise and shine.

Lately, I’ve been shopping the mondo mango madness sale at the grocery store like it’s my job. 5  mangoes for $5?! Ripe and drippy? Vibrant and sweet? I’ll take 20, thankyouverymuch! I’ve been snatching them up and letting them ripen on my counter before using them in smoothies and salsa, and lemme tell you: it’s worth the 2 to 3-day lead time in order to get the best mango result. Just don’t wait too long, lest the mangoes get brown and mooshy #ProTip.

I’ve been kicking around the idea of starting a series called “Smoothie Tuesdee” and posting a – you guessed it – smoothie every – you guessed it again – Tuesdee. Howeves, I truthfully don’t drink enough interesting smoothies to make that series last. As in, most of my smoothies are of the banana-blueberry-almond milk varietal and I don’t want you to poke me in the eyeball after I post my umpteenth naner-blue-smoo. <- I made that up to shorten “banana blueberry smoothie” but it actually has kind of a nice ring to it.

What was I saying?

Oh yes, this smoothie.  Brought to you by the 5 for $5 mango sale, leftover coconut milk in Julia’s refrigerator sale, constant supply of ripe bananas on Julia’s counter sale, leftover peach from freelance project sale, + chia seeds in the pantry, just.duh.

Aside from being scrumtrulescent, mangoes come with health benefits, too! They give your immune system a boost because they contain a decent amount of vitamin C, have been known to prevent colon, breast, and prostate cancer. Mangoes help break down proteins, which aids in digestion, PLUS, word has it, mangoes help clear clogged pores, making your skin gorgeous. They are also high in Vitamin E…which increases sex drive…just so’s you know.

And then there’s the chia seeds, which are ultra trendy and full of omegas.

The flavor of this smoothie is sweet, creamy, and it goes down reeeeal easy. I noticed while drinking it that it could benefit from a little citrusy acid action. Like a little orange zest and/or juice, perchance? To make it extra tropicalifragilistic? But to be quite frank, sometimes you want zest-less creamy sweet nothings on your taste buds, so perchance this smoothie needs no orange-ing, perchance? It’s up to youseroos. Stop poking me in the eyeball.

Draaaaank!

    Yum!!!! This one will be happening here! I’m thinking maybe a couple tablespoons of lemon juice and maybe a little lemon zest for the citrus? I would also add some protein powder because I use smoothies as meals & can’t do ones that are mostly carb. Oh, how I wish it were peach/nectarine season…

      Yeeeeeah! I think the lemon juice and zest addition would be great! And I can’t wait until peach season, too! This year, I’m going to make a point of freezing loads of ripe peaches and nectarines in order to make the season stretch just a liiiittle longer 😉 Hope you’re having a great weekend!

      Hi Sue, I’d say replace the banana with another ripe peach…even strawberries or blueberries would taste great!
