“Mango-Cranberry” Live Green Smoothie
This Live Green Smoothie is pudding-thick, tangy-tart, and chockfull of mango goodness! This recipe is a great way to use up left-over cranberries (or an expense to pick up more and make use of post-Thanksgiving sales).
If your mangos aren’t nice and ripe, you’ll need to add a bit of extra sweetness, but this is definitely a great recipe for over-ripe mangoes. Again… a great recipe to keep in mind for making use of well-priced produce in the “this stuff has been around a shade too long” bin.
And just knowing you’ve got such gorgeous sunny-mango and festive-cranberry colors going into your glass… makes you feel all holiday-ey.
