Taste of the Tropics

creamy mango delight

With several inches of snow on the ground and a wind chill around -25° F, I am dreaming of lying on the beach under the warm summer sun. Instead of feeling the sand between my toes and the summer breeze blowing gently across my face, I am getting blasted by the bitterly cold wind gusts. Aaah, but today the refreshing Creamy Mango Delight is my escape, sweeping me away to a tropical paradise…if only for just a few minutes.

Creamy Mango Delight

1/2 large mango, peeled
2 apples, unpeeled
1/2 cup fresh pineapple, cut into chunks
1 kiwifruit, unpeeled

Feed fruit into juicer, and enjoy.

Yield: 1 serving (serving size = 1 cup or 8 ounces)

Recipe Notes

  • To convert this juice recipe into a smoothie, peel fruit, add 1 1/2 cups almond milk or rice milk, and put into a blender until smooth. Add ice, and blend again to thicken.

    New to TDF, is almond, rice, coconut milk allowed?

  2. Dorothea says:

    why would you put kiwi peel in your juice?

    • If you use a juicer to make this recipe (which is recommended), the peel doesn’t end up in the final product. Only the juice from the fruit is extracted. 🙂
