Mango raspberries smoothie

I am finally persuaded……..to enjoy smoothie! I have never liked smoothie. It’s cold, thick and sweet. But lately my children had been enjoying Mango Raspberries Smoothie. They were explaining to me that they were trying to eat more fruits! They served me a glass and….wow…..that was really good! But I felt so cold after that. Imagine having cold smoothie in this freezing weather? I took a look at my watch and goodness me, it was 11 p.m.! I just had to shut down my computer and jump into bed under my thick duvet and off into my dreamland…..zzzzz

My 2 children hardly cook. That’s because mommy is always there to cook for them. I think the recent 2 dishes that they made when I was down very sick with tummy upset really surprised but impressed me. Now this smoothie is a surprise to me again. At least they learn something new which is new to me too. Hoping very much that they learn more.

The recipe is very simple. The pictures are taken by them.

Ingredients
frozen mango
frozen raspberries
banana (peel and cut)
mango ice cream
mango juice

Put the fruits into the blender. Scoop in some mango ice cream, pour in some mango juice and blend it until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve. It is just so delicious. I’m sure I’ll enjoy this much more in summer.

mango + raspberries + banana sounds like a good combo! all my fave fruits in one

Kookie  on January 20th, 2010

Such perfect timing! I have mango puree and frozen raspberries left over from my birthday lunch. I’m going to try to make this with my stabmixer.

I am ok with smoothies as long as someone blends it for me! :O I don’t have the luxury of a good blender.

TasteHongKong  on January 20th, 2010

I don’t need to be persuaded and love to have one glass of the above. I take very few cold drinks, but this could be an exception.

penny aka jeroxie  on January 20th, 2010

All the summer fruits are calling me.

3hungrytummies  on January 20th, 2010

You are bring summer into your home! Mango is so cheap at the moment here, great breakfast idea!

Mary  on January 20th, 2010

@noobcook - A good one to start for you then :P I don’t quite like raspberries because of its sourness but it’s very nice in this smoothie.

@Kookie - Have fun making and enjoy it….refreshing and delicious :)

@tigerfish - You must be one lucky one to have someone blend for you! Hope you get a good blender soon. Then you can enjoy endless smoothies :)

@TasteHongKong - Me, too. I don’t like cold drinks. I don’t like that cold feeling in my stomach but I don’t mind this one…just sip slowly :P

@Penny aka jeroxie - This drink would be just perfect for the hot summer over on your side. I’m sure I’ll be drinking this everyday when summer comes.

@3hungrytummies - I wish I am back home….so much sweet and cheap mangoes to make this smoothie. I’ll have to eat my heart out when I go back.

anncoo  on January 20th, 2010

I love smoothie with any kind of fruits mixed…very healthy and refreshing.

Divina  on January 20th, 2010

I like your new watermark. I love all kinds of smoothies but if there’s assorted berries here, I would love to have that with some peaches. But I usually do them with tropical fruits. Right now, we have abundant mangoes and I mix them with lime juice and sometimes to make a green smoothie, I add some malunggay leaves (moringa). Then this is the best way to add my hemp hearts and bee pollen.

Here’s my previous post about smoothie:

Roti n Rice  on January 20th, 2010

Smoothies are good and they are even better when made by your own kids! How sweet of them! :)

peachkins  on January 20th, 2010

I love smoothies! They are healthy and delish!

Drick  on January 20th, 2010

ah, the ice cream smoothie…very nice blend of fruits - tell your kids to keep surprising you

Mary  on January 20th, 2010

@Anncoo - I seem to be slow in catching up but glad finally I did :D If only I have all the Asian local fruits to make smoothie!

@Divina - Thank you for comment about the watermark. Just giving it a try. Don’t think it’s the best but good for the time being. Using tropical fruits would be my best. They are fresh and sweet and full of vitamins. Makes me miss home again :( Thanks very much for the link….awesome smoothies!Waiting for my girls to make for me again :P

@Sushma Mallya - Thank you very much.

@Simply Life - Thank you very much.

@Roti n Rice - They really warm my heart :D I’m waiting for the next smoothie @P

@peachkins - Agree with you…healthy and delish…mmmm. I just love it!

@Drick - I really hope my children will keep up learning….good for me :P OOooh….I love the ice cream. In fact I have a scoop of ice cream on top of it….it’s so good…mmmm

Smoothies are great, I like putting yogurt in mine as well as milk.

Marysol  on January 20th, 2010

Healthy yes, but mangoes and raspberries are such heavenly fruits, in their own right, that it’s not at all difficult to imagine how wonderful this smoothie would be.

Anna  on January 20th, 2010

I love smoothies, I had one everyday before go top school when I was a kid, we called it “vitamina” usually was with banana and papaya or avocado. It’s wonderful that your kids are showing some interest in cooking.

Julie Lynn  on January 20th, 2010

We love smoothies at our house. =) I’m so glad that your children are doing some food preparation. Good for them!

Mary  on January 20th, 2010

@Sarah, Maison Cupcake - That soounds good. I have to try that too. Thanks for sharing.

@Marysol - They truly are. I hope to learn more and enjoy more smoothies :P

@Anna - That’s such a cute name, but appropriate cos it’s so rich in vitamins. I hope my children will learn more, then I’ll get to eat more :D

@Julie Lynn - Totally agree with you that it’s good for my children. I do want them to know how to cook well before they leave the nest of comfort.

Mimi  on January 20th, 2010

I have teenagers and they consider smoothies a food group!

Megan  on January 20th, 2010

What a fun and easy smoothie recipe! I love the combination of raspberries and mangoes-not only do they look pretty together, but they taste delicious :)

Blackswan  on January 20th, 2010

Gosh, look at all the fruits! This looks soooooo refreshing for a hot day in S’pore!

Iron Chef Shellie  on January 20th, 2010

Looks and sounds delicious! It’s summer down here so I will have to give it a go!

Faith  on January 20th, 2010

Your children took great pics! That raspberry/mango/banana combo sounds fantastic!

Patty  on January 20th, 2010

Wow! Your children must have inherited your genes because they are very talented in the kitchen! Wonderful smoothie recipe! My children love smoothies, so I will definitely try this recipe on them! Hope you are feeling better!

cheah  on January 20th, 2010

Wow, imagine drinking that in freezing weather. My girls love smoothie too and your combo is great!

Mary  on January 21st, 2010

@Mimi - I think my girls will happily consider any food a good group, even junk food!! It’s hard these days with so much processed & junk food around.

@Megan - Thank you very much. The best part of it is that it’s so simple and easy to make, yet so delicious. A great way to eat more types of fruits.

@Blackswan - Oh, I can imagine that. I’ll be hiding in air conditoned room the whole day and downing myself with all these refreshing fruit drinks. But I miss all the sunshine there!

@Iron Chef Shellie - Have fun making and joy the wonderful, refreshing taste of it!

@Faith - Thank you very much.

@Patty - I hope my children will cook better than me so that I can retire :D They love all my cooking but they have come out with their own cooking style…good for them. At least they learn. I’m fully well now. Thanks very much.

@Cheah - Ya, unbelievable huh…drinking in freezing weather and near midnight! Now I don’t know who is crazy :D

kristy  on January 21st, 2010

Hmm..mm…yumm…yumm…! I love it!

Mary  on January 21st, 2010

@Kristy - I have just started loving it :D Slow but steady :P

lululu  on January 25th, 2010

not sure if u’ve heard about “jugo juice”. i’ve been craving for their smoothie that i hv to hv it after my lunch everyday. and it costs me CAD$6!!!!!!
now, i know how to satisfy my craving economically! :)

Mary  on January 25th, 2010

@lululu - No, haven’t heard of ‘jugo juice’ Is it a Filipino drink? That’s expensive if you buy it everyday. Hope you try out this one soon. It’s cheap to make. We have been drinking it almost everyday.

Romaine of Salad in a Jar  on January 26th, 2010

Love smoothies. I will try this. Sounds delicious.

Mary  on January 26th, 2010

@Romaine of Salad in a Jar - Thank you very much. Have fun making and enjoy your smoothie.

Mangoes AND raspberries - what a great combination! Two of my favourite fruits!
