Mango surprise

Mango Surprise by Carole's Chatter

Don't you just love the fancy glass I put this "Mango Surprise" in! I think it is an original peanut butter jar glass.  So much for photo styling.

But the drink was delicious.  And I can't get over how easy it is to make drinks like this. 

You do need to have some frozen banana bits on hand – I snap freeze them a couple of bananas at a time and keep them in little plastic baggies in the freezer.

What went into this drink:

½ can of mango pieces with the juice – came out of the fridge so was cold
Juice of 1 orange
3 frozen banana bits

And that was it! – No added sugar, water or dairy or anything in the milky line.  Just whizzed it up in no time with my old stick blender – which is still working well enough for this.

  1. Looks good! That would be a perfect drink for this hot Texas afternoon! I brewed up some herbal tea with fresh mint from the garden. Iced tea is my standard daily drink - I drink at LEAST a quart - often TWO - every day!

  2. Looks delicious... wish I had mangos on hand this morning!

  3. This kind of a mango juice is way better than drinking packaged mango drink. :)

  4. I love mango, this looks delicious.

  5. Yum! My son LOVES mango, so I make him Mango Smoothies all the time - mostly the same ingredients as you - I use frozen mango, sliced banana, orange juice...and he likes his with a bit of vanilla ice cream or yogurt in it.

    That reminds me - we are out of frozen mango - I better go get some today!
