Mango Banana Smoothie

I hope you all had a GREAT weekend! I know I did.

I spent my Saturday morning at the tire store getting my flat repaired from a nail it sucked in. After an hour of waiting, I was informed they wouldn’t patch my tire because it’s too bald. They said all four tires were on the verge of bursting. Whaaaa. I knew they were balding but I had hoped that I could hold out for another month (or two or three or four) to buy new ones. So I sucked it up and bought two new ones. I wasn’t going to buy four. Not enough moo-law. The other two tires will just have to wait.

So if you see me stranded on the side of the road with a flat tire because I chose not to buy FOUR tires, be kind and help me, kay? Or better yet, you may see me standing on the side of the road holding up a sign that says “Will work for food” beings I no longer have grocery money. Holy shizz, tires are expensive.

It’s a good thing I kick started my day with this awesome fruity Mango Banana Smoothie made with coconut milk to tide me over or I probably would have been starving by the time I got out of the tire shop two and a half hours later! Sigh.

Remember my pictorial on how to cut a mango? This is the perfect time to get out that tutorial if you have a whole mango you want to use.

If you use frozen mango or banana, eliminate the ice cubes.
