Why do I get a feel that my blog is having a lot of fruity recipes going on? 😀 Just have a look at my home page and you will understand my feeling. No doubt, I love to work with fruits – eat them raw, chop them up, cook up with them, blitz them… And off late, I have been doing it more frequently, mainly because the last thing I want is to trash my fruits! Sometimes, I get over zealous and buy a lot of fruits, and at times they get ignored, or should I say, I forget about them and they land up in the trashbin. 🙁 I hate myself when I do that. So I try to blitz them or make use of them somehow or the other, so that I can get rid of that guilt.
I had made this smoothie way before I made the mango avocado smoothie bowl and I have been hooked to it. Both these fruits are my favorite when it comes to making a smoothie for breakfast, since it is literally like a meal in itself! Just chop them up and blitz them and what you get is such a super thick smoothie, that will keep you feeling full till lunch time. The sweetness of the mango and the creaminess of the avocado is just a perfect match. As much as I used to make this before, now I do the vegan version and I have mentioned the changes to be made in the notes in the recipe card, but believe me, it tastes good enough or much better at times!
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 large mango, ripe
- ½ cup milk
- ½ cup yogurt
- ½ cup cold water
- 1 tsp milled flax (optional)
- 1 tbsp honey (as per sweetness)
- A dash of vanilla essence
- Scoop out the avocado and chop into the blender.
- Peel the mango and chop into the blender.
- Add the remaining ingredients and blend well till smooth.
- Serve immediately.
To make this vegan, replace the milk and yogurt with a cup of coconut milk or almond milk and the honey with raw sugar or maple syrup.
