This Odd Couple Get On Very Well Together Indeed…

As a  member of  Food.Com (formerally known as Recipezaar) I have often made this recipe when I want a refreshing smoothie.

Sadly my current long recovery means that standing in my kitchen  is by far the exception than the norm, so I haven’t made this since last year, but  with avocados and mango’s available easily at the moment here, this IS the season to jump in with this recipe.

The recipe belongs to fellow member “JanuaryBride” and if you want to make this and leave her a review that just follow the link at the bottom of the post.

I have never ever bothered with tracking down mango nectar, I just peel and pit a fresh mango and yum! I also “up” the mint…

I first thought a  mix of mango and avocado  to be a marriage of the odd couple but a very happy marriage it turns out to be indeed. The individual flavours hit your taste buds one after another and each time they go WOW!

This is not only great as a smoothie but also as an “amuse” before a dinner party, serve it chilled in shot glasses. (Seriously good).

Green Machine Smoothie (Mango and Avocado)

2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1 ripe avocado, halved, pitted and peeled
1 (12 ounce) can chilled mango nectar (like Goya)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves

In a blender, puree all ingredients and serve in a chilled glass with a lime wedge as a garnish.
