Mango-Banana Smoothie!

So sometimes I start making a recipe and I don't make sure I have all the ingredients on hand before I begin. Like today. This was supposed to be a mango-banana-coconut water smoothie, because I was really sure I had half a box of coconut water left in the fridge (spoiler alert: I didn't), so when I went to add it I was a little frustrated with myself. But then I just grabbed the almond milk, used that instead, and what was supposed to be a super light fruity smoothie came out more like a thick, fruity, milkshake. I don't mind that kind of mistake one single bit. I like milkshakes. I'll use the coconut water- smoothie idea and show y'all that one another day but today is still a mango-banana smoothie day. 
Why mangoes? Because I got a really good deal on them. $1 a piece at Winn-Dixie right now. I really like mangoes, but I'm usually too cheap to buy them. But a dollar makes me holler honey boo boo! OMG, I just said that. I apologize. Moving on, the mangoes give this smoothie a tropical feel. Perfect for enjoying on your back porch (or maybe just looking out the window). ENJOY!

1 Mango, chopped (Don't know how to cut up a mango? Cool, neither did I- look here:  http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/how_to_cut_a_mango/)
1 banana, peeled and chopped
3/4 C. almond milk (or choice of milk)
Step 1: Add all your ingredients to the blender.
Step 2: Whirrrrr until smooth and combined!
Step 3: Enjoy with a pretty view!
Ooooh look, Dixie made the bottom of the picture:-)
