This is a very simple homemade smoothie which doesn’t even need a blender to do the mixing. I often did this as a bonding session with my girl, too. She would help me to mash the cut mango with fork. To her, it was like pressing playdoh or something. In fact, the main purpose to use a fork instead of a blender was just to let my girl have fun over her help out. By all mean, go ahead with a blender, if it’s easier for you. The consistency between using a fork and into a blender differs a little. The later certainly yields more refine and smoother consistency.
This dessert takes less than 10 min to make 2 glasses.
Serves 2 large glasses
2 honey mangoes, chilled and peeled
1 cup of plain yogurt (low-fat)
2 tablespoons of breakfast cereal (eg honey stars or cornflakes), lightly crushed
2 tablespoons of honey
1) Cut 1 of the peeled mangos (any shape you find it easy to mash). Place in a bowl and mash into puree with a fork. Put the mango puree with yogurt and honey together. Mix well.
2) Cut another mango into small cubes. Set aside.
3) Get a nice glass, add a layer of yogurt mixture into the glass. Add a layer of mango cubes, followed by 1 tablespoon of cereal. Fill the glass with more yogurt mixture until almost full. Repeat steps for another serving. Serve chilled.
This smoothie is great for anytime of the day.

Tips: I used Thailand honey mango. Choose ripe enough mango for this recipe. As for yogurt, I used Paul’s brand this time.
