Banana Mango Smoothie

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Whenever I am in a crazy mad dash to get to work in the morning and I have no time to spare, one of my favorite breakfasts to make is a simple smoothie. What I love about a smoothie is that it is quick to assemble, I can take it to work with me, and it’s delicious!  My Banana Mango Smoothie is a fresh tropical tasting mixture of banana, mango chunks, ice, and apple juice. Sometimes I like to add a scoop of vanilla flavored protein powder to fill me up and to help keep me from snacking at my desk.  Simply toss all ingredients into a blender and within a few minutes, breakfast is served. Enjoy!  Tessa

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana (peeled and cut into chunks)
  • 1 cup mango chunks (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 – 3 ice cubes
  • approximately 1 cup apple juice
  • 1 scoop vanilla flavored protein powder (optional)
  • 1 – 2 drops liquid stevia (optional)

Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.  Add additional apple juice if desired.  Pour in a glass, add straw and serve.  Makes 1 serving.

Banana Avocado Mango Smoothie

My “go to” breakfast or morning snack during the hot summer months is an ice cold Banana Avocado Mango Smoothie (aka BAM Smoothie).  I love preparing smoothies because they are good for you, quick and easy to make and most importantly, they’re portable.  After blending, just pour it in a spill proof container or glass, add a fat straw, and breakfast is served!  My Banana Avocado Mango Smoothie is made with a fresh banana, avocado, frozen mango chunks, and chilled unfiltered apple juice.  My BAM Smoothie is a simple combination of ingredients that is simply satisfying and tastes delicious.  Enjoy!  Tessa

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium sized banana
  • 1/2 medium sized avocado (skin and pit removed)
  • 1 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • stevia (optional, for additional sweetness)

Add all ingredients to a blender or a single serving blender cup.  Blend on high until smooth, about 30 seconds.  Serve immediately.  Pour into a glass, add a straw and enjoy!  Makes 1 serving.
