This is the almonds and oatmeal in a small coffee grinder Ė before. (Unlike the mango, I had a lot more almonds, so ate quite a few of those!)
This is my almond mixture after grinding.
This is my almond mixture and mango pieces in a Magic Bullet Blender before mixing.
Mixture after blending.† At one point it was not blending well enough so I added 2 tbs. of water.
The mixture smelled a lot like oatmeal but it definitely tasted like mango. The taste was how I would imagine mango baby food to taste.
The mixture seemed to be on the watery side, so the only way I knew to make sure it didnít run off my face was to lie on a towel and then use my hand to grab the mixture and swish it on my face. After lying down for five minutes it seemed safe to stand up.
The most obvious experience I had was that it felt so cool on my face. I was expecting for it to warm up after a while but it never did. Maybe that was the cooling property of mango I had researched previously?
