Fast and Yummy Mango Smoothie


Smoothies have never been a favorite of mine. Perhaps because they did not feel me enough, perhaps because they often looked complicated to make, and I never had all the ingredients to make them. Well it all changed this week. For some reason, my traditional breakfast did not suit with me this week. I did not feel like eating toast, or scrambled eggs or anything else really. But as a firm believer that breakfast should not be skipped, i scouted my fridge for something to eat. Fruits did not appeal to me… so what???? I had bananas getting brown and that’s when I decided that instead of wasting them, I could use them for a smoothie. I will tell you that I did not follow any recipe here, I just used what I had on hand and threw things here and there in my mixer.

Ingredients for 2 tall glasses:

  • 1 large banana
  • 1 mango ripe
  • 1 cup of milk ( almond, coconut or regular ) I used skim lactaid.
  • 2 tbsp of brown sugar, or honey, or agave.
  1. Place all ingredients besides the sugar in a mixer.
  2. Pulse
  3. Add sugar if you deem it necessary
  4. You may add more milk if you wish to make your smoothie more liquid.

You can substitute any fruit to the mango. One day i used strawberries, another day I used blueberries.

The recipe makes 2 tall glasses, so you can either share with a person in your household ( i did with my daughter Lisa one day), or you can keep one for snacks ( I also did that several days in a row.) Thos smoothies are very filling, and I was fully satisfied ans satiated. Give it a try, it is a nice healthy option for breakfast. Now I am a smoothie addict;-)

Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
