Mango Kiwi Smoothie Recipe- Vegan. Gluten Free.
Mango Kiwi Smoothie is a delicious combination of mangoes, kiwi and mint. Being a vegan and gluten free smoothie, it makes a great breakfast and a snack option. It is the season of mangoes here in India. I guess it is the season pretty much every where in the tropical countries. Contrary to popular belief, the Alphonso mangoes are not the most desired or bought variety in India. While a lot of Alphonso is available, the best of them are exported and the residual lots are very pricey. But there are about 100 other varieties in the market that will leave you confused. The last time i entered my fresh fruit market, i was greeted by that warm mango fragrance from almost every corner. I hardly found other fruits. Every shop had crates of mangoes stacked to the ceiling and they were selling them in the blink of an eye. Like you all know by now, we are only three in the house. Well, little A does not even figure in the count. But just saying. You know, the math. Well, so i was buying mangoes from a vendor in this market. I asked him for a kg of Badami mangoes and a kg of Kesar mangoes, both of which are famous here locally. The Badami kind makes fine milkshakes and Kesar is great to eat as is. Just when i had finished dropping the fruits into my bag, a man walks up and asks the vendor, how much for one crate of Badami. One crate has about 10 kg of mangoes, you see. And i immediately felt so small and embarrassed. I quickly made an exit. You get the point, right?
Well coming to the smoothie, you all should make this. I insist because it is so many things all at once in a glass. It is filling. It is vegan. It has Kiwi. And above all else, it has mango. So, don’t you want more reason to enjoy this Mango Kiwi Smoothie Recipe?
