Dear Cancer Project supporter,

Puréed frozen fruit makes a wonderful dessert, without the fat or refined sugar of ice cream. Look for frozen mango pieces in your supermarket, or you can make your own using fresh mangoes. To freeze bananas, peel, break into chunks, and place loosely in a covered container in the freezer.


Makes 3 1-cup servings

1 orange (preferably navel), peeled
1 cup frozen banana chunks
1 cup frozen mango chunks
1/2-1 cup fortified soy or rice milk

Cut orange in half and remove any seeds. Place in a blender with banana, mango, and nondairy milk. Blend until thick and very smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve immediately.

Fruit smoothies are best when consumed immediately. If you have leftovers, keep in the refrigerator for up to one day or freeze for up to 1 week. Blend the mixture again before consuming.
