This was a nice, cool, creamy drink for a summer afternoon. I was home alone, working and puttering around. I paused for a break, drank this smoothie, and sat on the couch, gazing on the sparkling sea outside.
Mango and Ginger Smoothie
1 ripe mango
1/2 c (150 ml) plain yogurt
1 t grated fresh ginger
1/4 c (75 ml) orange juice
ice cubes (optional)
Cut the mango into cubes: slice downwards, avoiding the stone, on the two flat sides. Score the flesh into cubes, then pop the skin inside out and scoop the cubes out. Do this directly into the bowl of a food processor or blender so the juice drips down as well.
Add the yogurt, ginger, orange juice, and ice cubes, if using.
Blend until smooth, about 1 minute.
