Refreshing Mint Smoothie
This smoothie combines mint and lime with mango creating a delightfully refreshing start to your day.
Makes 2 servings
2 mangoes, ripe
1 medium cucumber, chilled
10 mint leaves
1 cup ice
1 lime, juiced
Much like a mango lassi or mint chutney, this smoothie is a refreshing accompaniment to any Indian menu. If ripe mango is not available, frozen mango can be substituted and less ice used. Peel the fresh mango and place in the blender. Add the cucumber, mint leaves, ice, and fresh lime juice. Blend until smooth. Turn off the blender to adjust ingredients or use a tamper.
