Mango Smoothies

We went through a heat spell here in Los Angeles. And by heat spell, I mean, I was more or less unemployed for a week, and had to endure the high 80's while lounging around figuring out more ways to eat fruit.
I found Mangoes on sale for 3/$1 and got about 6. They all seemed to ripen at the same time, so I tortured my house mates with all you can drink Mango Smoothies. Although, I usually varied the recipe every night, here is an approximation and should be a good base for your own Smoothies.
1 Mango, peeled, de-pitted
1 tsp Lemon Juice
Juice of 1 Lime
a drizzle of maple syrup (or 1 tsp of sugar)
16 oz. of water
20-30 cubes of ice

Optional: mint or anything else from yogurt to milk that you want to throw inBlend until Ice is broken up to an acceptable size. If you overblend, it will become frothy and less desirable in my book. We will save that for when we make Mango Foam.

Remember when the pool attacked me and I awoke after a 10 hour vicodin-induced coma and I stumbled into your kitchen and you made me the most delicious smoothie ever and then I took another vicodin and slept for like 30 more hours?
