I love smoothies! It is quick and easy snack or even meal (breakfast! yay!) And it is a very convenient way to get your fruit and veg servings in one go. I dreaaaam of a Nutribullet (Dear Santa… is it too early to ask… promise I will be GOOD!), but for now, my little stick blender does the trick!
First up – Banana and Mango smoothie.
What I omitted when I made this one was some crushed ice (was in too much of a hurry!), but you can definitely add some. I used frozen banana though, it also help to coooool your drink.
1 banana (frozen if you are prepared!), peeled and cut into chunks
1 mango, peeled and cut into chunks (I know it is more expensive, but I prefer to buy mangos prepared already, what a mess to clean!)
100ml vanilla yogurt
100ml fat free yogurt
And now, a short cut to tropical goodness – 1 few drops of coconut essence.
Blitz and enjoy!
Don’t you just love these tiki glasses?? Got it from Mr Price Home – got get some 🙂
Banana and Apricot smoothie
Yes, there is a theme – I believe that all smoothies MUST have at least one banana in! Especially if you want to enjoy a filling and smooooth drink.
And as above – I use a mix of milk and yogurt, otherwise it may be too thick or too thin!
So the only difference – I replaced the mango with 4 apricots. Lovely and sweet!
And that is smoothies for you – you can mix up your fruit options, maybe even add some veggies, like spinach or celery. For a more filling breakfast, mix in a portion of raw oats or All Bran flakes!
