That sounds yummy! Here is a favorite one of mine and my kids. We call it The Hulk or The Green Smoothie
1 cup water
2 large handfuls fresh baby spinach
1 to 2 medium bananas
1 mango
about 1 cup frozen peaches (sometimes I substitute frozen cherries which are very good in this but gives it a reddish tone)

Put water and spinach in blender and blend
add banana blend
add mango blend
add frozen fruit blend
Pour into glass and enjoy

Mango Lassi
(Makes about 4 servings, recipe adapted slightly from The South Beach Diet Taste of Summer Cookbook.)

1 large mango, peeled and cut into cubes (about 1 1/2 cups diced mango)
1 1/2 cups plain non-fat yogurt (I used Fage Total Greek Yogurt)
1/2 cup chilled water (or use skim milk for a creamier drink)
1 T Splenda, Agave Nectar, or sugar (use Splenda or Agave Nectar for South Beach Diet)
pinch of ground cardamom (optional, but it was a nice addition)
ice cubes (optional, I tried it both ways and preferred it without the ice cubes)

Peel mango and cut into cubes. (You might want to read How to Cut a Mango from Simply Recipes if you haven't done it.) Put mango cubes in food processor and pulse until pureed. Add yogurt, water, sweetener of your choice and cardamom (if using) and pulse until ingredients are well blended. Serve over ice, or chill in the refrigerator for an hour or two.

South Beach Diet and Low-Glycemic Suggestions:
Made with Splenda or Agave Nectar, and using non-fat yogurt, this would be phase two

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie
