This Jamaican mango smoothie recipe will have you drinking mangoes instead of eating it during the entire mango season. It is filling, smooth, rich in flavour and is used mostly as an afternoon snack. It is another one of the Jamaican beverages you can enjoy.
First let me see if I can educate those who don't already know what a mango or a smoothie is and let you know the difference between a JUICE and a SMOOTHIE...
Ok, so mangoes, smoothies and juices are three things that are popularly known these days.
A mango is a fleshy, oval-shaped, red-yellowish tropical fruit that contains more than 20 vitamins and minerals and as such are often called the "king of fruits". Mangoes are rich in natural sugars but it does not affect your sugar levels like many other fruits with high natural sugar content.
A smoothie is a thick beverage made from blended raw fruit or vegetables with other ingredients such as water, ice, dairy products or sweeteners. Note that the entire fruit is often used, except the skin and seeds (depending on the type of fruit used).
A juice, on the other hand, is when ONLY the juice is extracted from the fruit or vegetable. If using a juice extractor, this leaves the fibre in the pulp collector, which is usually at the back of the machine.
Now that we have an idea as to what to expect when making a smoothie as opposed to a juice, let us get started with this delicious, all-natural Jamaican Mango Smoothie Recipe.
1. Crush ice in blender
2. Add the mangoes, orange juice concentrate, and milk to the crushed ice
3. Puree all the ingredients in the blender until smooth.
4. Pour into glasses and serve as a smoothie
Now don't be limited when making this mango smoothie, you can add any flavour you need to it like your favourite alcoholic beverage, but no more than two (2) tablespoons so as not to reduce the texture of the blend...
Enjoy your Smoothie, especially during the mango season..
