Delicious! I decided to recreate Toni's "mistake" and froze my fruitsthe day before. I also did not need to add ice. Absolutely wonderful flavor - my DD really enjoyed this and asked for it again! DS just drank it and hummed! Thank you for a terrific desertI can feel good about serving the kids! **Made for Beverage Tag January 2008**
Very nice drink this is! I've been fortunate, I think, to find a nice, ripe mango now & then over the past several weeks, & was able to make this smoothie up just right! I'm not big on adding ice cubes to these kinds of drinks, but did add some, one at a time, until I got the taste I wanted! Thanks a lot for posting the recipe for this great-tasting drink!
So surprised this smoothie has had so little attention as it was just wonderful. I could not find pineapple yogurt so plain nonfat yogurt was used instead. Slightly absentminded I planned to make this one afternoon and popped the fruit into the freezer and promptly forgot about it until the next morning. The result was a super frosty smoothie that did not need any ice cubes either for volume or consistency. Actually had to add a tablespoon of milk to get the immersion blender moving. Delicious!
