Everyone loves a delicious smoothie.

Could I have posted a more boring recipe today while I’m lying on the beach?

Yes. Yes I could have.

It could have involved broccoli.



Instead I wanted you to feel like you are at the beach right besides me.

You know, minus the rum.



The verdict is still out on mangoes.

I can’t decide if I love them alone.

I always figured I would, since I love mango lip gloss and body lotion, but when I finally shelled out my entire paycheck for a mango, it just tasted a bit. . .off. Nothing like lip gloss or body lotion.

Anyone else know what I’m saying?

Good. Because I don’t.



Regardless, I love mango when it’s mixed with something.

Like scallops. Or coconut. Or eggs.
Or even. . .salad.

Who am I? The sun must be frying my brain.



Mango Vanilla Bean Smoothie

1/2 mango, chopped

1/4 cup plain greek yogurt

3/4 cup milk – I used vanilla almond milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

contents of 1/2 vanilla bean

Combine all ingredients in a blended and mix until smooth. Garnish with additional mango slices.





Are you a mango-lover?

What is your favorite way to eat it?

    A perfectly ripe mango all by itself = heaven. But it has to be JUST right.

    I’m not a mango lover. In fact I avoid most things with them and yet I’m not sure why. Maybe I would like them in a smoothie.

    You can’t decide if you like mango alone or not? I’m not sure if we can be blogger friends anymore. haha. They’re sooooo good!!! Mango & Cherries are my absolute faves!

    I was dying at this; since I too have a love/hate relationship with the mango! I wrote a post about how I thought mangoes tasted like hot garbage – but when I had them dried; I loved them. But raw (or in other dishes, I’m NOT into them). Mangoes – you so crazy!

    I was looking for a good recipe for a lonely mango I have in my kitchen! I might add some protein powder and make a post workout smoothie with your recipe! :)

    By the way, your recipes are DELISH. Thank you!
    I love mangoes in blended with strawberries and sweet papaya. When I don’t have time to sit and eat my fruits, I blend them all and go. Voila!
