More smoothies…

Frozen Mango

How can it be the last day of September when it is still so hot outside? That is OK, we have been cooling off with lots of smoothies. One of my favorite tricks is to freeze slices of banana, cubed mango, strawberries, blueberries and chunks of pineapple. I have one baking sheet that fits perfectly in the freezer and I use it with a Silpat nonstick liner. Once the fruit is frozen, I store it in freezer bags. The reason I freeze it on the baking sheet is so it does not get all stuck together. It is so easy to make a frozen fruit smoothie this way. I also happen to think it is cheaper than buying packaged frozen fruit and the quality is better. One of my favorites is 1 cup of frozen mango with 1 cup of cold water and 1 tangerine. Have you ever wondered how to select or cut a mango? You can learn all about it at www.mango.org
