Lawman, Mangos and a Stick Blender


Remember those lovely limes I got a couple of weekends ago? I also picked up a couple of mangos that day at a great price - 2/$1. Lawman loves mangos. I know there's a classic Seinfeld episode which involves mangos too; another one of Lawman's favorites.

Not only does he love mangos but he loves fruit smoothies in the summer. Just so happens that Lawman had a birthday in early June. And, his lovely wife remembered his love of fruit smoothies and purchased a Cuisinart Stick Blender and a smoothies cookbook as part of his birthday gift. Turns out that Cuisinart has seen lots of action this month. I'm glad Lawman doesn't mind sharing because I've had my share of smoothies for breakfast this month too. We've consumed a lot of fruit -- mangos, watermelon, cantalope, apples, bananas, strawberries, pineapple and blueberries. Cucumbers and spinach have made their way into our morning smoothies too.

It's been quite easy for us to have 2 or 3 servings of fruit before we even make it to work. Not a bad way to start our day.

I'm in love with mangos myself. I'm pretty "stuck" perhaps when it comes to smoothies. We always seem to go for the same fruit combinations, strawberries & bananas. I need to make some mango smoothies! We are going to pick our freezer haul of strawberries this weekend.
