Mangoes are one of my favorite fruits that I wait for in summer! Growing up in India, we used to wait for the mango season as kids. And we would get so many different varieties of mangoes, each variety having a different and unique taste and flavor. There are over 1000 varieties of mangoes grown in India with Alphonso being the most popular because of its sweetness.
I love to eat mangoes as-is but also love to incorporate them in salads. And they are also great for smoothies! I usually make a green smoothie with lots of greens and mango. This season I decided to experiment with a different kind and decided to mix up another fruit with it. I find cantaloupes very refreshing and so decided to mix them with the mango adding a couple of vegetables as well. The result was a really delicious and refreshing drink!
- 1 ripe mango, peeled and chopped (about 2 cups)
- 1 cup, diced cantaloupe
- ½ of an apple, peeled and chopped
- 1 celery stalk, chopped
- 1 small carrot, diced (about ¼ cup)
- 2 tablespoons collagen peptides
- Add everything to a blender and blend until you get a smooth consistency. Pour into two tall glasses and add ice cubes before serving!
