Hi! Thank you for stopping by to watch me, Leah, cook kosher. I've been the owner operator of my boutique catering firm in Seattle, Leah's Catering, for the past 14 years.
My idea of a vacation is a week in Mexico at the start of the off season. This usually coincides with the post Passover recuperation. Ah, not this year; 2 weeks in Bali last February and Acapulco last fall felt like all the sunshine I needed. Wrong. I still need the post Passover vacation. Guess a few glasses of this refreshing mango smoothie, made with organic stevia will have to do. Just have to crank up the heating pad and put my sunglasses on while I sip.
This recipe also makes a great margarita mixer but I'm good with it as is. Finding 'champagne' mangoes at Whole Foods that look ripe I decide to use them. They are very meaty with a slender pit. Tasting very much like the ones I remember in Hawaii when I was a kid, I'm transported back in time and space.
I'm also BACK on Weight Watchers so I opt to use organic stevia instead of sugar. Works for me, especially since I'm sitting here drinking the entire blender full by myself. I don't notice any difference in taste. Perfect!
