It is rather warm here; reminding us all that they didn't nickname this state "Sunny California" for nothing :) Nonetheless it is a gorgeous day today and the perfect day for a fruit smoothie.
Mom bought a big box of mangoes the other day and I have been enjoying them immensly :)
When I was younger my first and main exposure to mangoes was the dried ones you can get in a package at Costco. I loved those!! I was actually dissapointed when I first tried a fresh mango because I thought it tasted nothing like the dried ones that I loved :/
I made this smoothie to taste like the dried mangoes I remembered :)
