My sister's friend, Sis Lisa got me this Smoothie Machine as my wedding gift three years ago. Poor sis, she carried this huge box back all the way from Melbourne and I think I used it for not more than 3 times. Well..am simply too lazy to unpack and then pack it back after used...so it now got its own permanent space in the storeroom.
Hubby brought home one big bag of mangoes one day. The colour was bright yellow-orangey and I thought it would be sweet. Well..don't judge a mango by its skin. I can barely open my eyes when I took one big bite. Not knowing what to do with it, I packed it in the container and chucked it into my freezer. My plan? Hehehe...Frozen Mango Smoothie.
I wanted to make something like a cross between smoothie and ice-blended, and since the mangoes are not sweet, I do not want to add in ice-cubes to dilute the taste. That is why I freeze the mangoes so that it substitute the ice. Put everything into the smoothie machine and blend. There are 3 buttons, 0 is to stop, 1 is to blend and 2 is to smoothen the blended ingredients. Not too sure about the P button on the left, let me dig out the instruction book and check, provided if the booklet is still in the box.
When it's almost done, I poured in 1 bottle of LB flavoured Vitagen to enhance the taste. See how smooth the smoothie was...yumzzz!
Perhaps next time I should put in yoghurt instead of milk...wahh..Mango Lassi! Thanks again Sis Lisa for the wonderful gift. Will try to use more often in future especially I intend to display it out permanently in my new kitchen.
