Mango & Berries Smoothy and Instant Berry Margarita with a twist

With all the smoothies available everywhere now, I decided to make a virgin healthy smoothy, that kids can enjoy and healthy smoothy modified to not so healthy Margarita for adults who enjoy cocktails with a twist.



This recipe yields four 12 oz servings  of smoothy.
Out of these we consumed three as smoothy and from one 12 oz smoothy I made three 8 oz servings of Margaritas.

Ingredients for Smoothy:

  • 2  non fibrous ripe Mangoes, peels and cubed
  • 6 oz of fresh Black Berries
  • 6 oz of fresh Red Raspberries
  • 12 oz of fresh stemmed Strawberries
  • 1 pack (12 -14 oz) of frozen Blueberries
  • 1 cup of orange juice (can add more if want more diluted version)





Method:
  • Wash all the fresh Berries.
  • Wash, peel and cube mangoes discarding pits.
  • Chop, blend and puree all the Berries, Mango cubes and Orange juice to  smooth consistency.

  •  Since Blue Berries are frozen, you don't need ice, but if desired,  you can crush the ice in blender first and then add the berries, mangoes and orange juice. 
  • Serve in tall smoothy glasses with slices of strawberries on edge of glass for garnish.
 


 



Ingredients for Margarita:
  • Above prepared  smoothy (12 oz)
  • 12 oz of ready made Margarita ( I used Chi-Chi's)
  • Granulated sugar or white sea salt for rim of glass
  • Lime juice from two large juicy limes
  • Pinch of Kala Namak (black rock salt)for each serving
  • Pinch of roasted cumin powder for each serving.


Method:
  • Dip  rim of each margarita serving glass in lime juice and coat with sugar or salt generously.
  • Pour 4 oz of prepared smoothy in each glass.

  •  Add some lime juice, cumin powder and black salt  to smoothy in each glass.
  • Pour 4 oz of  ready made margarita in each glass of smoothy.
  • Stir and serve chilled.
 


 Enjoy :)
