mango smoothie...palm-free recipe #2

As I had mentioned before, I did some tweaking and came up with two more palm-free recipes after not being satisfied with my previous ones.  One was Sweet Orange, Honey & Oats...and the second one is this one..Mango Smoothie.  The recipes are very similar, except for the butters used...the first one has both cocoa and shea butters, and the second one has shea butter.  I still have another week to go before I get to try a bar of the Sweet Orange, Honey & Oats...can't wait!

I was in the mood for a mango scent...however, the bottles of mango fragrances I had were almost empty, so I ended up having to mix them in order to have enough for this batch.  Yum...it turned out to be an awesome scent!  "Mango Smoothie" seemed a fitting name.


I used olive oil, coconut oil, (unrefined) shea butter, rice bran oil and castor oil for this recipe.  For the color, I used 1 teaspoon of orange mica (BB).

    1. Thanks Jenny! I haven't used my crinkle cutter in the longest time because I can't cut straight, lol! I just took my time and didn't do too bad...only a couple of bars are a little wider on the bottom. :)
