Blackberry Mango Smoothie

The month of May snuck right up on me.  As well as did the Secret Recipe Club reveal date.  When I received my assignment I was quite excited.  I was assigned Lesa from Edesia’s Notebook.  I’ve known Lesa for quite a while in the blog world now and I really enjoy her posts.  She like a lot of things I like in food so I knew I would not have a hard time making something.  What I had a hard time with was life.  It was just so busy that time flew right by and before I knew it, I’m on the day of the reveal and still hadn’t made anything.  I went to my secret stash of recipes from her blog trying to figure out what I could make this morning that I had everything for.  Then I saw her Peach Melba Smoothie and knew right away I was going to change it up and make this Blackberry Mango Smoothie!

 Blackberry Mango Smoothie

This was a fancier smoothie than what I regularly make.  Most workday mornings I make smoothies right before I head out the door and drink it on my way into the office.  I don’t get too fancy with them, I normally don’t have time.  But when I saw this layered smoothie, I knew I had bought my mangos and blackberries yesterday for a reason 🙂  I actually had time to make a little more effort (which in reality wasn’t all that much more) and made the blackberry puree.  At first I thought I wasn’t going to strain the puree, I thought I could handle the seeds.  Then after tasting the puree and having more seeds than I cared for hitting my tongue  I decided to strain it.  Really wasn’t all that time consuming and I highly recommend if you use seeded berries that you strain the puree.

Blackberry Mango Smoothie

I decided that I still needed that slight yogurt tang to my smoothie and I had used up all my frozen mango from Trader Joes so I had to use fresh.  I did have frozen bananas so I used some of them to help thicken up the smoothie and to accommodate for not having all frozen fruit, I added ice to my mixture to thicken it up more.  Make sure to check out Lesa’s post for her Peach Melba Smoothie recipe that I used as a starter for mine.
