Your kids won't believe their luck when you taste this healthy fruit shake. Use cold mango to make it even cooler.
I cut and froze my mango and banana the night before specifically for this smoothie. I used homemade frozen vanilla yogurt last night instead of ice cream and Truvia instead of sugar. Honestly, this had too much milk. I think it would have been much better had I cut the milk back by half, at least. - 05 May 2012 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
this is really good and refreshing, very fruity...i used a frozen banana and added about 5 ice cubes to make it thicker...anyways it was really sweet (so it doesnt need the extra sugar)and had that tang of mango...perfect for summer... - 20 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Hubs loves his breakfast drinks on weekends. Whether you call them smoothies or milkshakes, whether they have yogurt or they don’t, no matter what fruit is added to them, he loves ‘em. Me? I really could take ‘em or leave ‘em, as I’ve never tasted one good enough to warrant all the calories and sugar, even if that sugar is just from the fruit. Besides, after making them awhile, one began to taste pretty much the same as another anyway. Not this time. While I had plenty of berries on hand, both fresh and frozen, I was determined to find something different to try, and this was it. Frozen mango came in handy, and because of that and the fact there was already quite a lot of milk in the drink, I chose not to add the optional ice cream. I added the cinnamon but didn’t want to push it and take a chance with the nutmeg, so I left it out. I handed this creamy, frothy milkshake to Hubs, then tried a little myself and thought, wow, this is awesome good! Uniquely different and 5-stars for sure! And even tho’ I didn’t expect Hubs would agree, he did! So what was so different about this? It wasn’t thick and gloppy, it was refreshingly light. It wasn’t overly condensed with flavor, again refreshing. It didn’t have the sour tang of yogurt. Most of all, it wasn’t your same old tired, berry smoothie. If I had any criticism at all, it would be that I might have liked a little more mango, but that would just be overly picky. - 04 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
