I know what you are going to say. To make a smoothie is just a matter of choosing which ingredients to use. Really nothing difficult.
I've growing up having it with lots of different variations. Mixing fruits, and sometimes vegetables, for a contrast of textures, colors, and many times adding crunchiness by topping them with coarsely chopped nuts.
In Brazil, some people like vitamina, that's how smoothie is called there, mixed with oranges, I prefer the richness of a good cow's milk, or coconut milk. Either way, smoothies are delicious. A great choice for a snack.
This is barely a recipe, and you may be put off when I tell you I failed at making a smoothie.
How is it possible someone fail at making a smoothie?
They happen to the best of us. I like to believe.
Let me explain. It's not that it turned up in some bizarre-tasting smoothie, but into a deliciously creamy dessert.
So naturally, I started mixing frozen mango, coconut flakes, and chia seeds with coconut milk...
But then something happened.
I felt like experimenting, trying to think outside of the smoothie box. And since I could not decide between adding whipped cream or heavy cream to my smoothie, I added both. And then some condensed milk for sweetness.
And I couldn't be happier I did it. My smoothie turned into a rich creamy texture pudding.
And if you have a sweet tooth, don't forget to add some condensed milk to this mixture.
