Mango has to be one of my favourite fruits and mango smoothies make me happy, plus it is yellow and the slices of mango reminded me of sunbeams so this is a tropical smoothie to make it feel like a getaway from winter for a bit.
1 cup vanilla yoghurt. I used 0% fat to lighten it a bit.
1 cup pineapple chunks + some of the juice.
2 cups mashed banana.
2 cups frozen mango chunks.
1 cap full of vanilla, about 1 tsp.
1/2 cup water.
For the bananas, I have found it helpful to make almost banana ice cubes. When bananas start to get overripe or there’s just a lot in the house, I mash them all up, put them in a plastic bag and in the freezer so there will be ripe bananas for smoothies or spontaneous banana bread. It makes smoothie have an ice cream like texture since they’re frozen.
This recipe also makes quite a bit of smoothie, which I keep in the freezer until next time I would like it. But smoothies don’t last too long and tend to get freezer burnt around 3 days after making them.
Put all of the ingredients into a blender, blend until smooth. Top with extra mango for more fruit and some granola ( recipe here! ) for crunch, enjoy!
