This yummy smoothie came about because my 16 year old is supposed to be writing a paper for school. I forced him to sit at the kitchen table sans electronics and distractions. Yet he ingeniously found a way: look at what we have in the fruit bowl (mangoes and kiwis) and not only suggest a recipe, but volunteer to run out to the store to get the other ingredients needed! Gee thanks, T-boy! The smoothies are great – but you still aren’t getting up until your paper is done!
2 mangoes, peeled chopped into pieces, pit in the trash
2 kiwis, peeled and chopped
1 banana, sliced up
1/2 pint of any frozen, low fat vanilla yogurt (we used Haagen Das, ‘cuz they sell it in the bodega on the corner)
1 tablespoon of honey
1/2 cup of apple juice
a bunch of ice cubes (at least one cup)
Combine all ingredients in blender, blend till smooth. Pour into fancy glasses and add straws. Yum!
