2 cups diced fresh mangoes
2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice
1 cup chopped cucumber, peeled and seeded
1 small red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced (optional)
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (basil or mint would also be nice)
1 – 2 tablespoons cold pressed organic extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon onion powder
Himalayan sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
red onion, chopped, for garnish
avocado, sliced, for garnish
Reserve a bit of the mango, cucumber, red pepper, and cilantro to use as the final garnish, if desired. Process the remaining ingredients in a blender until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Pout into bowls and garnish for soup or this can easily be poured into a glass and enjoyed as a savory, sweet smoothie.
