Soul of the Mango

Bad things happen in threes, or so the saying goes. Could the same be true of unexpected good things? Mack has landed the perfect job. Trix has met the love of her life. We're dizzy from it all and so we had to celebrate. Recipe for fêting friends? Mango-apricot smoothies on a rainy summer's night.

• 1 cup vanilla soymilk
• 1/2 tsb. vanilla extract
• 4 tsb. lemon juice
• 2 ripe mangos, peeled and chopped
• 6 ripe apricots, peeled and chopped
• 8 ice cubes

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend for about 2 minutes, or until mixture is smooth and thick. (Substitute vanilla yogurt for soymilk to create a thicker mix. Add more ice cubes for a thinner one.) Garnish with lemon slice and a smattering of blueberries.

Now raise a glass to that third good thing. Maybe it's you?
