Today, I was so lucky to find some ripe, yellow Alphonse mangoes at Walmart among the reddish-green Kent variety of mangoes in the produce section. Kent mangoes are great in fresh mango salsa. But Alphonse mangoes are the best eaten fresh or for smoothies, salads, dips, desserts, cakes, etc.
Any time is a good time for refreshing fruit smoothies so here is my Mango Smoothie 5 star Makeover using Irish Cream.
Irish Cream Mango Smoothie
flesh of two Alphonse mangoes or 1/2 cup canned mango puree (if you can find it)
3-4 Tbsp sugar
8 ice cubes (using more ice cubes make the smoothies thicker)
1/4 cup heavy cream
2 tsp Irish Cream (you can add more if you wish)
Mix first three ingredients together in your blender and puree till smooth. Pour in the heavy cream mixed with Irish cream. That's it...enjoy!!!
