Lately I've become addicted to mangos.
They are so revitalizing.
They make me feel good, but unlike a lot of vegetables they taste
Tonight I made my first smoothie!
I made it with a mango, plain yogurt, ice, milk, and sugar.
It made my whole brain spark up! It's instantly addicting!
It was so refreshing on a hot summer night.
I'm gonna be making a LOT of smoothies this summer!

Mangos are tricky. They are of the same family? as poison ivy or some
other nasty plant, but they sure taste good. I get mouth sores if I
overdo on mango, but I love the Keat variety.
The tropical north of Australia has the ideal climate for growing mangoes.
There is a variety that is never marketted, but you can find growing semi-
wildly in twos or threes in open paddocks or some backyards in North
Queensland, and this variety is known as turpentine mango. It has the un-
mistakeable odour of turpentine--that's ordinary paint thinner here in Oz.
When there are no other mangoes in season these turpentine mangoes are an
okay substitute for the mango-deprived. They are smallish and a bit stringy,
but it's like eating an ordinary mango in a room that has been freshly
painted. You grow to like them when there are none better.
Any local readers able to say whether the turpentine mango is a native of
Australia, otherwise where would it have come from? Perhaps early growers
found that it was useful for pollination or something?
