Tropical Tangerine Smoothie in Drinking Glass with a Straw

Smoothies are delicious any time but when it’s burning hot outside, sipping on an ice cold smoothie is like a vacation getaway in a glass.

It’s practically a requirement to kick off your shoes and put your feet up while enjoying a smoothie on a hot day.

Here’s a quick and easy recipe for a tropical “vacation getaway in a glass” that tastes wonderful.

This smoothie not only comes with tropical fruit (mango, banana and coconut milk), but also citrus (tangerine and a splash of lime).

Here are more recipes with mango, banana and coconut you may like “Mango and Orange Honey Walnut Shrimp“, “Browned Butter Banana Dessert” and “Nut-Crusted Coconut Chicken with Homemade Peanut Sauce“.

And for a light and spicy flavor boost, just a bit of fresh grated ginger root is added.

Here are more recipes made with ginger root you may like “Mango, Blueberry and Ginger Galette“, “Baby Bok Choy with Garlic and Ginger” and “Basil and Ginger Shrimp Cocktail Sauce“.

In this recipe a yellow mango is used.

At the farmers-type market where I buy my fruits and veggies they generally have mangos that are the more common variety called “Tommy Atkins Mangos” (red with green and bright orange, or yellow accents), or yellow mangos called “Honey (Ataulfo) Mangos” (kidney shaped).

When the yellow mangos are available I’ll buy them because they’re generally about half the price of the regular ones.

Unless of course the more common (Tommy Atkins) mangos are on sale then count me in for the ones with the best price.

The yellow Honey mangos are sweet, creamy and higher in both sugar and acid so they have a bit of a flavor boost when compared to the more mildly sweet Tommy Atkins mangos.

For more information on the various types of mangos and details about each one, heres a link to Mango.Org which is a helpful site to check out.

Let’s take a look at the ingredients for this delicious Tropical Tangerine and Ginger Smoothie.
