Drinks Week: Red Smoothie

Yum
#Drinks week continues with this Red Smoothie - made with strawberries and mango. It's the perfect summer drink! | www.fantasticalsharing.com

I love a good smoothie and it's one of the only ways I'll eat fresh fruit (or in this case frozen). My 6 year old is the same way - he likes the taste, not the texture of most fruits. Mangoes and strawberries are actually two fruits I will eat fresh and love, but it's hard to pass up a recipe like this. I am horrible at cutting mangoes, so I opted to use frozen mango. This is probably my most favorite smoothie I've ever had.

I've gotten super lazy with photos, so excuse the lovely ledge my smoothie is sitting on :)

What you need:
  • 2 cups frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • 1/2 cup cranberry juice (I used cranberry-raspberry to cut on the tartness), plus some
Directions:
  1. Blend until smooth, adding more juice until desired consistency is reached
Recipe adapted slightly from Gimme Some Oven
