Tropical Sunshine Smoothie

Here in the mid-Atlantic it seems like the temperatures just keep climbing.  I keep thinking, “This is the hottest it can possibly get,” until it’s hotter the next day, and the day after that… Fortunately, hubby and I currently have a working air conditioner (hurray!) and we’ve been hiding inside for the most part.  Last week I went to IKEA (more on that later) and the walk from the parking lot to the front door and back was about all I could handle.  And I actually enjoy hot weather.  So that really is saying something.

So to beat the heat I’ve become quite the smoothie guru lately.  These tropical smoothies are a perfect way to start another hot-hot-hot day with some cool, fruity nutrition.  Just make sure to drink them, okay?  I know it’s tempting to pour them over your head, but that’s not the intent here.

1 cup frozen mango cubes
