How to make a mango smoothie just like they do in HKG.
3.5cupsfrozen mango chunkssee note
1/2cupfresh mango cubes
Make the mango jelly: sprinkle the gelatin on the mango juice and let bloom for 3-5 minutes then stir in the hot water. When the gelatin is dissolved, stir in the sugar, if using, then the mango puree. Pour into a small rectangular dish or container and let set, about 4 hours. When set, cut into small cubes.
Make the mango smoothie: Blend the frozen mango cubes with the juice and ice until smooth.
Assemble: Add some mango jelly to the bottom of a glass, then top with the mango smoothie and some fresh mango cubes. Enjoy immediately!
You can use store-bought frozen mango chunks as well but I find that fresh ones are almost always sweeter, so I peel, cube, and freeze fresh mangos specifically for this smoothie.
