A Mango Smoothie Recipe From The Gallipot

While I am not a big mango fan, or for that matter a smoothie fan, I found this Mango Smoothie recipe to be quite refreshing.  I did however find it even better with a bit of white rum in it.  To be fair though, it had been a long night before.  At least you are replacing vitamins while removing them.

Ingredients:

1 Large ripe mango, peeled and cut into cubes
1 Cup yoghurt
1 Medium sized banana
1 Teaspoon freshly grated ginger
2 Cups ice
Fresh nutmeg for grating

Preparation Method:

1. Add all ingredients except nutmeg to blender.
2. Blend until desired consistency.
3. Garnish with fresh nutmeg, and any fruit you desire.

Mango Trivia

  • Mangoes first appeared in India over 5,000 years ago.
  • Around 300 or 400 A.D., the seeds spread from Asia to the Middle East, East Africa and South America thanks to traveling humans.
  • Their trees can grow up to 100 feet with a canopy of over 35 feet.
  • Trees can still bear fruit after 300 years.
  • Their flowers are pollinated by insects.
  • It takes about 4 to 6 years for a tree to bear fruit.
  • It takes about 4 months for the fruit to mature and each one is harvested by hand.
  • India is the largest producer of the fruit, followed by China and Thailand.
  • Only Florida, California, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico can grow mangoes in the United States.
  • There are over 500 varieties throughout the world.
