Mango Orange Smoothie

So simple, so good. This is a sweet marriage. I use 1 mango and juice from 2 oranges per smoothie. If you have time, then peel and cut the mango into pieces and freeze before blending your smoothie.  The frozen mango pieces will make the smoothie incredibly smooth and thick. Yum. You can also use ice cubes, if you don’t have time to freeze the mango or try thinning your drink with water for an even more refreshing drink agua fresca style. Agua frescas are drinks made with fresh fruits, water and sometimes lime. Some are sweetened, some are not. It all depends on the fruits you use. Agua frescas are very popular all over Mexico. Here is a good recipe for cantaloupe agua fresca.

These are some of the more popular agua fresca flavors captured at my local farmer’s market. We often stop by here after the kids’ swim lessons.

  1. Hi Maiken
    I use the juice from the 2 oranges. If you have a really good blender, I guess you could peel the oranges, cut them in smaller pieces and blend it all. The result may not be as smooth, but you would get more fiber this way. Thank you for stopping by Foodyear 🙂

  2. This looks delicious! I have to try this tomorrow 🙂
    But do you use the juice from two oranges, or do you just peel it and put it all in?

  3. My kids were asking me to make them some smoothies yesterday. Here’s one I’ll make for them today, thanks!!
