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.
