Most Quenching Smoothie Ever!!

This is my absolute favorite smoothie. I know smoothie recipes are a dime-a-dozen, but this one is so simple and tasty that it has to be tried. Note: I always, always buy super fresh mange, peel, chop, and freeze it myself because sometimes the pre-frozen mango is not as ripe as it should be. Also it is best to use freshly squeezed oranges, but store-bought juice is fine too.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups frozen mango chunks
  • 1 12 cups freshly squeezed orange juice

Directions

  1. Purée the frozen mango chunks until they are completely smooth in a food processor or a blender.
  2. Slowly add the orange juice while blending.
  3. The amount of juice is actually totally up to you depending on how thick or thin you like your smoothies.
  4. This smoothie is so good, I love it -- but it can also play host to numerous other frozen fruits and/or juices. Just be sure to blend any other fruits with the mango at the beginning and then add the juice. I often add a quick squeeze of lime to the orange juice.
  5. Enjoy!

Well, I wouldn't know about "ever", but this was a very very tasty smoothie, and simple. It made two big glasses for me. My mango was pre-frozen (store-bought) - I used the rest of the bag I had on hand, which amounted to maybe slightly more than 2 cups. As for the oranges, I bought a bag (maybe the first I ever have), and, using a new manual reamer/juicer with an attached jar, squeezed slightly more than 1.5 cups of juice out of 5 oranges (it didn't sound very efficient, but I'm not very experienced at squeezing oranges.) I highly recommend this easy recipe. Oh, and a bonus was that the second glassful, sitting in the blender overnight in the fridge, didn't separate in the least - I really liked that this kept its consistency so well.

What a great tasting smoothie! So easy to make but it has a lot of flavor. I did use a bag of frozen mango chunks from Trader Joe's; I hate cutting mangoes. Thanks for a great recipe!

Delicious. I can see why this is your favorite smoothie. I love all fruit mango smoothies the most so am recommending you try, recipe#391620. Your recipe is not properly food combined as per http://www.rawplus.com/images/foodcom.jpg. I added some mango nectar because I used the poor frozen mango you speak of plus freshly squeezed orange juice. I may try this again with that squeeze of fresh lime juice you often add as well.
