Mango Orange Smoothie

Happy National Mango Day! 

Did you know, today 7/22 is the day to enjoy golden tropical sweet fruit, Mango! 

Until I came to the US, my image for mango was 

  1. A tropical fruit
  2. Expensive
  3. Edible jewelry

In Japan, a southern region called Miyazaki is famous for growing mangoes. It is warm and ideal climate to grow mangoes, and their marketing effort worked well, so if you go to Miyazaki for sightseeing or business, you’d be tempted to get some as a souvenir. But, now I have to warn you, each mango is about $30. 

Yes, it’s huge and packaged with a fancy box, but let’s say you are looking for something for 10 people. It’s gonna be $300, supposed to be paid with your pocket money.

 

Now as you can guess, how happy I was to enjoy mango with reasonable price, can’t you? When you are lucky, you can perfectly choose sweet, melting-in-the-mouth type, and as they are not $30 for each, you can enjoy second serving as well without paying too much money. 

Eating fresh mango is of course great, but how about making a smoothie with it? By adding orange, your mind travels to heaven:)

Ready? Let’s cook to make a round trip ticket to the tropical heaven!

Mmm, so tropical, so juicy fancy smoothie! 

Mango in the US is already satisfactory to me, but my friends from Vietnam said they are too sour. Well, I guess my next trip is to some tropical place near the equator to enjoy sweet edible jewelry, mangoes! (and oranges, our breakfast must-have item!)
