Coco-Mango Smoothie (recipe)

Coco-Mango Smoothie

I gotta tell ya. I’m feeling really left out of the foodie blogsphere right about now. It seems all everyone is talking about is summer salads, strawberries, blueberries, peaches light dinners and OMG it’s so hot they can’t eat ‘real food’ … and I’m sitting here in my tropical yard where it’s the same high temperatures the year round trying to figure out how I am able to eat ‘real food’ the year round and what I should showcase as a result :lol:!

Because we shop from the local markets the content of the shopping cart will vary with what’s in season but to say that there is a time when I eat heavier foods, and another time when I eat lighter, well no.. can’t relate. Hot food, cold food, just gimme gimme me good food! πŸ™‚

That’s why I really liked the topic of this month’s Monthly Mingle… Scream For IceCream πŸ™‚ Not only because it was something that I could relate to but I also knew how to mix it with something that -is- in season right now, MANGOES πŸ™‚ yum!

Icy, tropical and sinfully sweet, I only wish I had bought a larger vat of coconut icecream so I could have made seconds and thirds πŸ™‚

    Girl it is broiling hot here and people have to eat and try to keep their weight down to go to the beach and look presentable (at least that is what they say on the morning news shows). So I think that is why they talk about eating light…

    Hey, that looks scrumptious! When I lived in Grenada, we used to make smoothies almost every morning for breakfast. We would peel and freeze bananas, so that frozen bananas were always on hand, and then we’d put those, some kind of juice, and some cut-up fruit (mango being my favorite) in the blender and whiz it up. The banana made it thick and cold, and it was just delicious.

    Gawd, I miss good mangoes. All the different varities. I can’t remember, now, the name of my favorite one, sadly. Although, I couldn’t get it here anyway, so I guess it doesn’t matter now. πŸ™
