We are dealing with another Chicago Weather Vortex (see picture below)! It’s zero degrees here! Brrrrr!!! I’m dreaming of the tropics, and wanted something warm, desperately!!!
Watch the video below for more about it…
~ 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!
