    Some more ideas

    For a tropical banana smoothie, replace the mango and plain curd with 1 large sliced banana. To make a kiwi and raspberry smoothie, use 2 peeled and chopped kiwi fruits, 225 g raspberries and 300 ml apple or white grape juice. Sweeten to taste with a little honey, if necessary. * Try a pear and blackberry smoothie, made with 2 peeled, cored and chopped ripe dessert pears, 125 g blackberries, the pulpy flesh of 2 passion fruit and 300 ml cranberry juice. * Another delicious smoothie is pineapple and strawberry. Use 1 peeled, cored and chopped small pineapple with 225 g strawberries and 300 ml apple juice.

    Plus points

    Smoothies are made very quickly, using raw fruit, so they retain the maximum nutritional value of their ingredients. * When made with milk and yogurt, a smoothie will also contain protein, calcium and many B vitamins – getting close to being a meal in a glass. * Mango is an excellent source of the antioxidant beta-carotene, which the body can convert into vitamin A. This vitamin is essential for healthy skin and good vision, especially in dim light. Mangoes also provide substantial amounts of vitamin C as well as vitamins B6 and E.

    Each serving provides

    Excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E. Good source of calcium, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin B12. Useful source of copper, folate, niacin, potassium, vitamin B1, zinc.

    Made it with a banana instead of a mango and used 1 tsp of vanilla extract and 1 tsp sugar instead of honey. Tasted great!  -  21 Sep 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
