Summer is a great time to enjoy mangos—they just seem like a summery fruit to me. And I tend to make smoothies more in the summer too, so that’s how I came to make this Fresh Mango Smoothie. I usually use plain or vanilla Greek yogurt in my smoothies and I like sweetening them with honey. For this smoothie, I added in a little ground flaxseed for extra fiber. It’s so thick and creamy! And just the thing when you want something that tastes dessert-like but is also good for you!
