This is an ultra-simple smoothie; those of you who frequently make smoothies for breakfast probably try versions of this all the time. But if you don't make smoothies very often (I don't) then give this super-quick, super-easy smoothie a try. It's icy cold, and not too sweet, but very refreshing. All that yogurt is cool and tangy, and a good ripe mango provides all the sweetness you need.
Mango Yogurt Smoothie Makes 1 to 2 servings, depending on portion size 1 large ripe mango, peeled and cut into a few chunks 1 ripe banana, peeled and cut in half 1 cup whole-milk yogurt 1 cup crushed ice Pinch of cardamom (optional) Mint, to garnish Blend all ingredients except for the mint in a blender until very smooth and frothy. Taste and add sweetener if desired (I don't). Garnish with mint and drink immediately while still very cold!Related: A Green Tea Shake for Hot Days (Images: Faith Durand)
