Mango Hurricane Copycat Smoothie

This week, I’ve been craving mangoes. Mangoes and yogurt, mangoes and ricotta cheese, and mangoes in smoothies. But not just any smoothies. It’s been a deep craving for mango hurricane smoothies from Booster Juice (how very specific, eh?). Since they are almost $6.00 a pop, I figured, why not make my own creation and save a bundle?

I was so lucky to have found a recipe online that tastes almost exactly like a mango hurricane smoothie from Booster Juice. DSCN0925

First, I added a little golden flax to the blender for some extra Omega 3 in my diet.DSCN0927

Then, I added all the fruit: mangoes, raspberries and peaches. DSCN0928

Next the liquids: vanilla yogurt, milk and guava juice. DSCN0929

Then I blended it all up!DSCN0931

Making smoothies gives me a great excuse to use my Alice in Wonderland inspired “Drink Me” cups. DSCN0932This tasty smoothie will definitely satisfy any Vitamin C craving!
