5 minutes and 5 ingredients to pure Mango Banana Smoothie bliss.
Whatever happened to the plain fruit smoothie? I mean, nothing against green smoothies, but does every smoothie have to be stuffed with kale and spinach? I mean, St. Paddy’s Day is over, so I think it’s okay for us to enjoy the pure, jewel toned goodness of a fruit smoothie untainted by greens (no offense kale).
Spring is right around the corner and I am so ready. I try really hard to eat seasonally, but last week I caved and bought several containers of berries from Sam’s Club. I ate them all in a few days. It was awesome.
But since berries are still a little before their prime, I’m filling the rest of my craving through berryfull frozen smoothies like this Mango Banana Strawberry Smoothie.
I don’t know why I’ve never thought to add mango to a smoothie. It gives it such a nice tropical flair and natural sweetness. In fact, between the over-ripe banana, frozen strawberries, and mango, you won’t need to add any extra sugar to this smoothie.
Like most smoothies, this one is a cinch to make. Only five ingredients and about 5 minutes of time to creamy, dreamy goodness. Honestly, this tastes more like a milkshake than a smoothie…except it’s healthy for you. Soooo…WIN!
Umm before we go, can we just talk The Bachelor for a quick sec? Because seriously, what was that finale? I was honestly a little disappointed both the girls showed up to the rose ceremony. I mean, how many red flags do you possibly need? Even the guy’s family doesn’t like him. I will say though, Chris Harrison was at his best as the snarky, openly hostile, Juan-hater during that wreck which they called After the Final Rose. Geesh. Don’t think I’ll be wasting my life on that show anymore (said the girl who will more than likely find herself tuning in to watch Andi in 3 months). Sigh. Why can’t I quit you Bachelor?!
Let’s chat– smoothies, Bachelor, spring…tell me what’s on your mind!
Mango Banana Strawberry Smoothie
