I was thrilled to find out how easy they are to make at home. Really, they aren't any different from a mango smoothie. So, I have decided that I will have them for breakfast or lunch from know on, rather than try and pack them into an already full dinner. I know that most recipes out there use mango puree or fresh mangoes, both are difficult to find in Fairbanks (good, fresh mangoes anyway). I decided to make mine with frozen mango chunks as I can find them easily in Fairbanks. The frozen mango also eliminates the need for ice cubes which I also don't care for in a smoothie. Feel free to use another sweetener in place of honey, or adjust the amount to your taste.
1 cup of frozen mango chunks
1 cup yogurt (whole milk, lowfat, non-fat, or even greek yogurt will work)
2 tsp honey
sprinkle of cardamom
Place mango, yogurt, and honey in a blender. Use the ice crush setting to break up the mango chunks, then switch to puree and process until smooth. Pour into a glass and sprinkle with cardamom. Makes one 12 oz. glass.
