Juice three oranges
FROZEN Mango chunks - about cup
Little water may be needed to be added - have on reserve
Place in Vitamix and blend well.
Add 6 strawberries is nice too.

Lately no matter how much sniffing and feeling I do of fresh Mango, I end up with a bad mango that I paid too much for. So I have switched to getting frozen. Saves me time and fingers peeling and cutting around the pit. They are already in chunks. There are not many things I encourage that aren't 100% fresh, but this one just seems to be the best option. Because I am not in Brazil...like some lucky people (Eva), I have to resort to these pre cubed frozen Mangoes. lol

Orange Julius is not as good as the frozen Mango orange smoothy I make....teehee
Better than Jamba juice too- at an affordable price!

also really good with a splash of vanilla, & a pinch each of cinnamon & cardamom. And fresh pineapple chunks are a good substitute for the orange juice. YUM!

You all are making my mouth water!!
The boyfriend and I are getting into making smoothies, now that the weather is finally warming up. We are going to try an orange smoothie tonight - he prepped for this by juicing a bunch of oranges and putting the juice in ice cube trays to freeze over night. We're going to use those instead of ice cubes, so the drink doesn't get watered down. I'm not sure about the rest of our concoction yet (I'm thinking orange pineapple sounds delicious!) but I'll let you know!
Just a little tip for other smoothie enthusiasts - I'm excited about using fruit cubes instead of water! The smoothies are going to be so yum!
