I know where she resides has lots of monkeys and I wondered how she was so lucky to be reaping mangoes from her trees with so many monkeys around.
"How come the monkeys allowing you to get mangoes down by you?" I asked her.
"Vee my dear guess what? We have put up some old cds and dvds in the trees..the sun shines on the discs as they spin in the wind.....the monkeys don't like the lights flashing in their eyes!!" she cried.
"Really???" I asked.
"Yes girlfriend since we tied those discs in the trees we have been reaping at least 4 bags of mangoes every day for some time now."
I couldn't believe it, could it be that simple or were the monkeys near her house simple minded. I certainly couldn't imagine my Brazen and crew fleeing from a few sparkly lights in the trees. Knowing my crew they'd probably think it was a new disco opened up and start partying in the garden till dawn. Despite this thought I made up my mind to try out her experiment sometime soon.
In the meanwhile I had a ton of mangoes to deal with.
Freezer filled with mango pulpI shared as many as I could with my close friends, and the rest I pulped and stored in the freezer. I also shared a few bags of the pulped mangoes with daughter dear.
For breakfast I have been having mango smoothies.
Using about a half cup of mango pulp, I added a half cup of apple juice with a bit of water and then added a tablespoon of an oat shake smoothie powder....oh my goodness....DEE-LISH-CIOUS!!!!
Of course one may add whatever other fruits like bananas or watermelon or even a few veggies to the mix.
A tasty mango breakfast smoothieSitting at my desk as I blog, I am enjoying my healthy delicious mango smoothies....such a simple pleasure makes me happy and starts my day off right.
Anyone care to join me??
P.S. Depending on the variety of mango you may need to strain the smoothie since fibrous mango pulp does not blend well (as can be seen from the photo above....I used the strainer after that.
