While you are laying out by the pool roasting, don’t forget to give your insides a little love too. Stay hydrated and full with this made-for-summer smoothie. Although this summer drink has no booze in it (no no, don’t leave the page just yet!) trust me, you won’t even miss it. This drink is equal parts tart raspberry and sweet mango, or as I like to call it, good and even better. If you like your raspberries tart, leave the sugar out and let the mango half swirl throughout it to sweeten the layer. But if you are all about sweet (…guilty) throw a little bit of sugar in there to make it even better.
