Easy Strawberry Mango Smoothie Recipe

Easy Strawberry Mango Smoothie Recipe

This past week has been a whirl wind. For the last couple of months, I have been pondering and looking for direction in my life. It has been a struggle, but my puzzle pieces finally came together. It’s amazing how life works itself out. I am grateful and truly blessed. We celebrated my exciting week by making strawberry mango smoothies.

I used the leftover fruit from our strawberry mango jicama salad to make our smoothies. I blended strawberries, mango chunks, homemade Greek yogurt, and ice cubes until smooth. I like my smoothies thick, so I didn’t add any liquid, but you can add a splash of fruit juice, milk, or water if you want a thinner smoothie.

We raised our glasses, clinked them together, and exclaimed Cheers-it was fun celebrating an exciting week with a refreshing strawberry mango smoothie. Not the traditional celebratory drink, but oh so refreshing and delicious.

Have a happy and safe Memorial Day! Don’t you love long weekends?

Easy Strawberry Mango Smoothie

Yield: Serves 2

Ingredients:

1 cup sliced strawberries

    Maria,

    Agreed. Life is crazy.

    You’ve had an emotional few weeks. But think of all the new possibilities. We just heard some good news too, I’ll have to share with you (involving my folks).

    Mangos and strawberries look like the perfect marriage.

    Best of luck to you!

    Loves,
    Kath
