It is the end of the month and it is time for the Shhh Cooking Secretly Challenge of the month. With the summers looming in this part of the world and back home already under a heat spell, it wasn’t difficult finalizing the theme for the month. The theme for the month is “Summer Coolers” and my partner for this month is Shailaja, whom I am dealing for the first time and am glad to be partnered with. 🙂
She gave me mango and ice cream as my secret ingredients. Mango is coming into season and who doesn’t get excited about this delicious fruit! I am not very fond of ice creams in my smoothies or drinks, so decided to only utilize mango for this challenge. What I did was pair it up with another seasonal fruit that are available now in the market, which is strawberries. This smoothie is vegan and is a notch healthier. Wouldn’t you agree that the strawberry gives a pretty freckle look to this thick smoothie? Just the type of smoothie I would want for a quick breakfast or a lazy evening! Off to the recipe…
Do check out what my partner, Shailaja made with the secret ingredients I had given to her… 🙂
