If you are friends with me on Facebook, you know that I am loving these smoothies.
I am loving them so much that I actually emptied out some jars of food so I could store my make ahead smoothies in them. It's the perfect grab and go breakfast.
I am also loving the fact that I buy random clearanced items, like these blank die-cute cards and envelopes I got for 50 cents each, at craft stores whenever I go in.
making this crustless quiche everyone raves about and now I am adding this naturally sweet and thick, Mango Pineapple Julius to the menu. Made with only three ingredients -- fruit, milk and stevia -- it tastes downright sinful, but ha ha jokes on you sinful, it's not.
Mango Pineapple Julius
Makes 2 Cups
Flesh of 1 mango
1 cup of frozen pineapple
Juice of 1 lime
1 cup milk (I used fat free cow's milk, you could sub any milk)
1 teaspoon stevia (optional)
Dump everything in a blender. Process until smooth. Serve immediately.
This is how I measure 1 cup of frozen pineapple:
It' very important to use frozen pineapple and not to add any ice because ice would greatly dilute the flavor. The pineapple serves as the ice that thickens the julius and the flavor that naturally sweetens it. You end up with:
