In my house we mostly have hot breakfasts like idli, dosa, upma, pongal, etc., But when the temperatures are soaring high and the kitchen turns into a sauna room. I prefer simple and easy recipes. I choose recipes which take minimal time to spend in kitchen during summers. As a cup of hot tea soothes your senses on a winter morning, a cold glass of smoothie or shake gives you peace on a hot summer morning. I make smoothies and shakes as a after school treat for my lil’M in the evenings. But these days I am making these in the morning to avoid standing long in kitchen.
Talking about smoothies, I do love these easy yet filling breakfast idea. You get to relish the goodness of fruit along with keeping you refreshing and light. As mangoes are in season, I am frequently making this mango yogurt smoothie. Simple ingredients and thick smoothie is always welcoming. With this easy recipe, I am sure you will be making a glass of chilled mango smoothie now.
