Recipe: Orange Mango Cocktail
Low Caloric & Diabetic Friendly Recipe


US MED Gives BackA diet rich in vegetables and fruits, and low in saturated fat and simple carbohydrates, is a healthy diet. Make sure you are adding all the necessary nutrients to your meal plan on a daily basis.


Orange and mango are a perfect combination for a sweet and refreshing drink. I like to use Valencia oranges for their superior flavor and tartness. They do have seeds, but not many, and they are not hard to remove. Valencias are in season in the summertime, which makes it a perfect time right now.

  • 1˝ cups orange sections
  • 1 large mango (about 1 lb), peeled & cut into chunks
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp SPLENDA® Granular
