Directions:

1. Blend all ingredients in a food processor until creamy. 2. Marinate your choice of protein for 30 minutes or longer, if you have the time. 3. Grill lightly or roast in the oven at 375. 4. We love to serve this on skewers, complete with some fresh mango and cucumbers.  Mango is a wonderful fruit for digestion- it is full of enzymes that get your digestive juices going! ____________________________________________________________
