Mango Smoothie


6 ounces silken tofu, drained
1 medium banana, peeled and cut in half
1 mango
1 cup milk (your preference)
1 handful spinach
1 handful ice cubes

Cutting board
Measuring cups
Measuring spoons
Fine grater
Tall drinking glasses

1. Cut the mango by placing one flat side resting on the cutting board. Slice it lengthwise along the flat side next to the seed. Turn mango over and repeat on the other side. You will have two halves of the mango with pulp inside. Carefully cut lengthwise through the mango pulp down to the skin, being careful not to cut through the skin. Turn sideways and cut lengthwise again until you have a cross-hatch pattern. Turn the mango inside out using your thumbs to press the pulp outward. Carefully slice out the diced pulp by cutting between the cubed mango pulp and the skin. Discard the skin and seed.

2. Place banana, mango, tofu, milk and spinach into the blender. Blend on medium speed for 30 seconds.

3. Add ice cubes and blend again until smooth.

4. Pour into two frosty, tall drinking glasses. Enjoy!

Add 2/3 cup plain yogurt if tofu is not available. And if you prefer a sweeter drink, add a squeeze of honey.
