Mango Banana Smoothie

After a long day at school today, I got home and realized I didn’t have any fruit all day…in fact, all I had was sweets since my class had a bake sale fundraiser this morning. I recently discovered these mango chunks at Trader Joes in the freezer section, and thought they would make a great smoothie. You can probably use fresh, ripe mango as well with some ice for the slushy effect. I always add freshly grounded flax seeds for my omega-3 (thanks for the tip, Mom!). I also never use yogurt that is high in sugar (like vanilla, etc.). Instead I use low-fat plain yogurt, and find the fruits give it enough flavor. I used my Magic Bullet to make this smoothie (I use the thing almost everyday…it was a Christmas present from my brother!). You can probably find them pretty cheap on Amazon or Ebay. This mango banana smoothie is a perfect summery drink…now where is the sunshine San Francisco?!

    Those mango chunks are on my grocery list. This looks and sounds delicious. I’m always trying different smoothie recipes because my daughter LOVES them. Thanks for the great idea of banana and mango together!
