This smoothie has a tropical flavour and a beautiful pale orange colour. Mangos have such a rich character that you may be surprised to find that they are not a particularly high-calorie fruit (one medium mango has about 135 calories, according to Johny Bowden's "The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth"). That's because they have a relatively high percentage of water, which is why they're so juicy when they're ripe. They're a good source o potassium, vitamin A and beta-carotene.
This is inspired by wonderful Indian buttermilk drinks, called lassi.
1 heaped cup fresh or frozen ripe mango
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 medium size ripe banana

1. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender, and blend at high speed until smooth.
Yield: One 16-ounce or two 8-ounce servings.
Advance preparation: Smoothies should be made and drunk right away. This will thicken and lose flavor if it sits.
