Red Smoothie (Mango, Strawberry & Cranberry)

April 5, 2011 by Ali

The next color of the day for “Smoothie Week” here at Gimme Some Oven is RED! Although this second batch I made, pictured above, turned out a little more “magenta” than in this first post. Either way – YUM!

As you may have guessed, this recipe calls for lots of strawberries. But the best ingredient hidden in there happens to be my absolute favorite fruit — a mango! Ha, I realized while enjoying this that it’s basically the smoothie (non-alcoholic) version of my strawberry mango margaritas. :)

Definitely a simple smoothie, but packed with color, nutrients, and a deliciously sweet flavor. Enjoy!

Red Smoothie (Mango & Strawberry)

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Ali’s Tip:

Another fun twist would be to add some fresh lime to this. Yum!
