Advertisement

Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen mango chunks, plus additional for garnish
  • 2 containers (6 ounces each) low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Pinch salt

Directions

Combine 2 cups mango chunks, yogurt, orange juice, vanilla, if desired, lime juice, and salt in blender; blend until smooth.

Pour into four glasses. Garnish with additional mango chunks.

Note: Mangoes are an excellent source of vitamin A and are a very good source of vitamin C. They also provide potassium and fiber, and they’re sodium-free. If you can’t find frozen mango cubes, you can make your own. Cut mango into 1-inch chunks; place on cookie sheet and freeze for about 3 hours.

Yield: 4 servings. Serving size: about 5 ounces.
