Mango Muesli Smoothie

This is a simple smoothie that I made with the seasonal (overflowing) mangoes and a little of the microwave muesli made earlier.Now one of my main intentions on making the muesli was recreating several dishes that I have on the web that were made with dry muesli or granola or whatever you call.So though I am using is majorly for breakfast/snacking I will also be using it to make cookies,or whatever exciting recipe I find this smoothie being one of them.I had seen a granola smoothie in one cooking site and tried to recreate the same with the ingredients available.

Yoghurt: 1/2 cup
Milk: 1/4 cup
Water :preferably cold: 1/4-1/2 cup

Mangoes: 1/2 cup chopped
Powdered Ginger: optional: 1/2 tsp
Sugar/Sweetner: as per taste
Muesli: 2 tbsp

Extra Muesli: for garnish

Blend together all the ingredients and serve topped with muesli.Add 1/4 cup water first and then puree and add more water/yoghurt/milk depending on the thickness you want.Despite adding almost half cup of water mine was fairly thick. You can also add one banana to get mango banana muesli smoothie in which case more liquid may be needed.Adjust the sweetner depending on the sweetness of mango and the muesli.You can even use low fat/non fat/fruit yoghurt for making this.Do adjust the ingredients as per taste.

The smoothie was thick and filling and was very mangoey and "oatty" if there is such a term.I had simply added two tablespoons of muesli and this included the nuts and raisins in it and the toasted nutty taste was there. The smoothie is better served chilled as the taste increase on keeping and is perfect in hot weather.
