Which kind of mango is best for this smoothie?
For smoothies, I prefer mangoes that are sweet and non-fibrous. If you are in India, Alphonso, or Kesar would be a good choice. For those in the US, buy either Ataulfo, Kent, or Keitt.
Can we use store-bought mango pulp for this recipe?
You could, but I would suggest you get unsweetened mango pulp so that you can control the amount of sugar used in the recipe. One cup of mango pulp should be sufficient for this recipe.
