Sweet Decadence

One of my favorite treats is a mango smoothie. I put a peeled mango with the seed removed into the Vitamix with some soymilk, and it whips up really thick. The texture is more like whipped cream than a smoothie, and I eat it with a spoon.

The flavor reminds me of the 50/50 ice cream bars we used to have as children — half vanilla ice cream and half orange sherbet. If you add a little vanilla, the mango smoothie would taste even more like that.

There are several produce stands that sell mangoes on the route I take through the farmland to Camarillo. A box of mangoes costs $6, and there are 8-12 mangoes in a box, depending on the size of the fruit. ┬áThat’s a lot of smoothies!

    I have 5 mangos in the fridge just waiting for me to do something with them and now I know what to do! I have a Vita Mix all I need is some soy milk. Mangos here are a buck a piece.
