I’ve gotten kind of repetitive in my smoothie making. Once I figured out the “perfect” smoothies for watermelon and cantaloupe, I kept on making those with side tests on a cookbook I’m reviewing. Another thing I’m trying to figure out is the balance between sweet and sour. It’s an individual thing. Yesterday I made a mango/pineapple smoothie from a recipe that I didn’t like. It was too sour for me. Of course I had played with the recipe to lower the calories and when you start substituting you can ruin an otherwise good recipe. If you have patience, it’s always a good idea to make a recipe as shown first.
This is my take on a mango/pineapple smoothie. Not too sweet and much less sour!
- 1/2 cup frozen mango
- 1/2 cup pineapple
- 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/4 tsp almond flavoring
- 4 ice cubes
Blend together! Makes one serving.
