Blueberry Mango Smoothie


I know…. I know! I’ve been MIA for a while. Life’s been so hectic that cooking almost seemed like an indulgence for a couple of days. Hopefully things settle down and I get to do my favorite thing… cooking straight forward and soul satisfying food. Meanwhile here is something small I whipped up to beat the heat wave we were having.

Look At That Gorgeous Shade of Purple!


Blueberry Mango Smoothie

What you need:
Frozen blueberries as needed
2 scoops of Mango sorbet (I used Hagen Daaz Fat Free Mango Sorbet)
Yoghurt (I used non fat) as needed
Milk – I used milk to thin out the consistency of the smoothie

Getting down to business:
Combine all the ingredients and blitz with blender/ magic bullet or immersion blender! (I used an immersion blender… have I ever told you how much I love it?!)
Top off with a few more frozen blueberries or add some blueberries to the bottom of the glass and then pour in the smoothie. This way you get a nice surprise when you get to the bottom of the glass.

This was heavenly but healthy way to beat the unbearable heat …not that you need to wait for a heat wave to indulge!

Also another great recipe is Nutella Coffee from US Masala! Oh sweet heaven… this was such decadence! I followed the recipe but did not add the cinnamon. I highly recommend you try this out.
