A licuado is a Latin American smoothie. Actually, I suspect that a smoothie is a North-of-Mexico licuado. This is refreshing on a hot day. It is also good with pineapple instead of mango.

  • 34 cup mango, peeled and chopped (frozen if you like it slushier)
  • 2 cups cold milk

I enjoyed this delicious smoothie very much. I was excited to taste it as it features my two favorite juices, guava and mango. It was smooth, subtle, nicely sweetened and refreshing. Really quick and easy to make. I used the vanilla sugar and lime juice options. This was so good, I will be making this often. Thank you so much for sharing. Made for Think Pink 2014.
