The Cheap Dish
Mango Smoothies - $1.99

My roomie and I have been re-watching LOST from the beginning, and they seem to eat a lot of Mangoes on that creepy island. So, Liz got it in her head to make a Mango smoothie, but quickly ran into issues. How the heck do you cut a mango? It proved much harder than was first expected, but, with a little help from the Internetz and only a little frustration, she got it done. You will need:

  1. Mango - 2 for $1.00
  2. Banana - $.79 a pound
  3. Strawberry Yogurt - $.70

The staples you will need include:

  1. Milk
  2. Orange Juice
  3. Ice

Place 7-8 cubes of ice (one handful) in the bottom of the blender. Add the diced Mango (or 1 cup fruit of your choice), then add the yogurt, 1/4 cup of milk, 1/2 cup of OJ and one cut up banana. Blend together until smooth. Serves 2 people.

After tasting the smoothie, the Mango doesn’t really blend well. So, we decided that we’ll stick to our normal Strawberry-Banana smoothies and save those pesky Mangoes for the islanders.

Happy drinking!
