Treat of the day

I had planned to make these for dessert after our Indian dinner the other night, but by the time we were done eating we were full and ready to head to bed. Not to worry, they also make an excellent after-work refresher.

Mango Shakes
2 ripe mangoes, pits and skins removed
1 large banana
10-12 ice cubes
2/3 cup plain soy milk
1/3 cup orange juice

Combine all ingredients in a blender (put the ice in first). Serve immediately. Makes two 16 oz. servings.

If using frozen mango (I prefer fresh ones because they're so juicy, even though they're a pain to prepare--I'm also kind of a neanderthal and really like to suck all of the leftover fruit off the pit), omit half the ice. For a more fruity drink, use 1 cup orange juice and omit soy milk.

I rolled $49 worth of coins today. Who needs a job when Jason the coin collector regularly donates to any open patch of tabletop?
