Another goodie!

Ingredients:

~ Frozen mango (can’t find fresh right now)
~ Yellow Lime – 1/4 to 1/2 (yellow = ripe, just learned this, and I’m a believer now!)
~ Basil – 2-3 large leaves
~ Guacamole – 1 packet (I buy the little packets from Costco)

Blend all ingredients in the Vitamix with about 1/2 cup of water to help it blend nicely.

It’s soooo super delicious!

This made enough for two large salads!
