Strawberry Mango Smoothie

Simple and healthy, these Strawberry Mango Smoothies contain strawberries, mango, and almond milk, and are naturally sweetened with honey.

I don’t know about the rest of you that celebrate the 4th of July, but I am tired today!  No, I didn’t party or stay up  until midnight.  My 4th of July consisted of mowing and weedwhacking my huge lawn, testing a new muffin recipe, and staying up until about 10:30 watching my neighbors’ display of fireworks.  For dinner I made a casserole, and around 8:00 I taste tested one of my muffins and ate some green olives for a celebratory snack.  Yep, I’m a real party person over here, and am feeling it today.  *insert clip of Katherine laughing at herself*

With the heat outdoors and the fatigue I’m currently experiencing, I don’t particularly want to think about anything today.  All I want to do is sit here and drink this Strawberry Mango Smoothie.  Of course that isn’t going to work out because my house needs to be cleaned.  That’s ok though.  I don’t mind cleaning.  I just don’t want to see a mower for awhile after spending two hours sitting on it yesterday.

Ok, guys, don’t tell my husband (or my in-laws; it’s their mower), but I might have hit a piece of concrete while I was mowing.  I was just sailing along through the yard and all of a sudden a random piece of concrete jumped up out of the dirt and kicked the blades.  (Seriously?)  That mower is kind of like the Beverly Hillbillies version of a mower so I’m still in disbelief that it didn’t just fall apart into a bunch of pieces leaving me sitting in a pile of parts holding the steering wheel. *facepalm*  If you’re thinking, “Beverly Hillbillies, what’s that?”, just google “Beverly Hillbillies car” and you’ll get a visual.

This smoothie is so photogenic that I’m having to suppress the urge to share ten pictures of it.  I don’t want to put you all to sleep before you get to the recipe.

Besides, you only need five ingredients to create your own photogenic smoothie:  1 mango, some strawberries, almond milk, honey, and ice.  Ok, one more picture…
