It’s officially summer! Almost.  You know I think that cooking is such a great  activity to do with your kids!    As the days heat up, cool down with these yummy recipes:  Mighty Mango SUPER Smoothies made with SQ1 mango and quinoa!

1 (2oz.) Square One Organic Mango cup, frozen 

1 (2oz.) Square One Organic Quinoa cup, frozen

½ cup frozen organic fruit (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries or peaches)

1 cup Vanilla Rice DreamÒ rice milk

Run frozen mango and quinoa cups briefly under warm water to loosen.  Remove foil and pop mango and quinoa into blender container. Add remaining ingredients.  Blend until smooth.

Yield: 1 ¾ cups

Variation: Mighty Mango Melon SUPER Smoothie

Substitute ½ cup organic cantaloupe or watermelon chunks for frozen fruit. Reduce rice milk to ½ cup and add ½ cup Rice DreamÒ organic vanilla non-dairy frozen dessert.

Tips for Leftovers: Smoothie Popsicles

Spoon any extra smoothie mixture into 3-oz paper cups.   Insert one baby spoon to use as  popsicle stick into each cup. Freeze until mixture is solid. Peel cup from popsicles and enjoy!
