Found this over at a popular weight loss site and definitely want to try it. For just 2 points, you can have a wonderful tropical treat.
- 1 ripe mango, peeled, seeded and chopped
- 1 cup crushed ice
- 1⁄2 cup nonfat plain yogurt or 1⁄2 cup non-fat vanilla yogurt
- 2 teaspoons Splenda sugar substitute (optional, but if you are using plain yogurt you are more apt to use)
- 1⁄2 cup cold water
- 3⁄4 teaspoon minced crystallized ginger or 3⁄4 teaspoon peeled fresh ginger
- Combine all ingredients in a blender.
- Puree 'til smooth.
Just ok. I don't think my mango was big enough. I found my smoothie lacking in mango flavor but the candied ginger goes nicely. I might make it again but not add the ice and substitute the water for milk. I think the water and ice dilute the wonderful mango flavor. I live in a rural area so I don't get mangos a lot, now I wish I had just eaten the mango plain. Hope this helped you.
This smoothie is so much tastier made with coconut milk for those of us with dairy allergies! More of a tropical Zing!<br/>I buy a pound or two of fresh ginger, puree it in my blender and then freeze by the teaspoonful on a tray. When frozen I bag it. The ginger is far zestier done this way and so easy to take a piece from the bag, drop in the blender! For those who don't want a strong ginger flavour I suggest 1/2 teaspoon measures to start.
WOW --- mango just off the tree, with the very minced ginger, a container of Yoplait lite Very Vanilla and 6 ice cubes. That's all ---- very good. My my my. The only difference between mine and the picture -- is that our mango is taxi cab yellow! nothing pale about it -- including the flavor!
