My comments:

I used only 1/2 a banana this time so the banana flavour does not overpower the rest of the fruits. I find it tasted much better than using a full banana.

Also, I bought the Mexican mangoes (red and green colour) this time because they were cheap. However, I found the meat to be tasteless even when eaten by itself. So you can't taste the mangoes at all after blending with the other fruits. Next time, I'd try using the Phillipines mangoes (see picture) which are smaller and have a bright yellow colour. They have a stronger mango flavour and they are very sweet. You can usually find them for a decent price in the summer. It is a good idea to buy them cheap in the summer and freeze the mango meat so you can have delicious mangoes all year round.

And as always, you can adjust the amount of milk and honey according to your preference in consistency and sweetness.
