Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients

Ingredients

  • ½ c. honey Greek yogurt
  • ½ c. frozen mango
  • 8 frozen cherries
  • ½ c. orange juice

Flavor Balancers

  • ½ c. sugar

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients into the blender and cover.
  • Activate the blender. If you have frozen ingredients that are not cooperating, use the pulse function and a little finesse to pulse your way into the perfect mixture.
  • Taste you smoothie and adjust. Is there too much or not enough of a certain ingredient or flavor? Adjust the flavors just like you would do anything else.
  • Serve in a glass with a straw. Garnish if desired.

Notes

If your smoothie turns out too thick, simply add more orange juice to thin it out. The acid in the oranges reacts with the milk in the yogurt to create a cheese like substance. This is very normal and should happen when these two interact.
