Blueberry Mango Smoothie

School is back in session and the mornings might be a little crazy. I remember the days of fighting for the bathroom, finishing up my homework, frantically searching for my library books, and trying to eat breakfast before I missed the bus. There never seemed to be enough time in the morning. I was always rushed.  If you are looking for an easy, healthy breakfast, try this Blueberry Mango Smoothie. It is easy to make and kids and adults will love it.

This smoothie recipe only has four ingredients. I told you it was easy! All you have to do is throw the ingredients in the blender and let it do the work.

I like to use frozen blueberries to add thickness to the smoothie, plus I always have frozen berries on hand. If you have fresh berries, just throw in a couple of ice cubes. I use plain fat-free Greek yogurt-Chobani is my favorite, but feel free to use your favorite brand.

I like my smoothies thick, so I don’t add a lot of liquid, just a splash of milk or water to help it blend. You can use soy, almond, or skim milk. This smoothie is very versatile. This recipe serves 2. If Josh isn’t around to share with me, I drink half of the smoothie and put the rest in the freezer for later. I like to take the smoothie out of the freezer as soon as I wake up in the morning. By the time I am ready for breakfast it is defrosted and ready to drink. I love having a healthy breakfast ready to go!

This Blueberry Mango Smoothie also makes a great post workout snack. I love making this smoothie after Body Pump class. The Greek yogurt is an excellent source of protein and helps refuel my muscles. This smoothie really is good anytime of the day-as an after school snack or even healthy dessert.

So what are you waiting for? Grab some blueberries, mango, yogurt, and milk/water, and get blending! You will have a delicious Blueberry Mango Smoothie in minutes!

Blueberry Mango Smoothie

Yield: Serves 2

Ingredients:

1 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup mango chunks
1 cup plain Greek yogurt (I used Chobani 0%)
1/4 cup vanilla soy milk, almond milk, or skim milk or water (the liquid helps it blend)

Directions:

1. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender, and blend at high speed until smooth.

2. Pour into glasses and serve immediately.

Note-If you don't have frozen berries, you can use fresh, just throw in a couple of ice cubes. Also, you can place the smoothie in the freezer for later. Just thaw before drinking.

    Looks delicious! I’d probably throw some spinach leaves in there too – doesn’t change the taste at all, and gets those dark leafy greens in painlessly. I love mangos, but I never seem to think of any good recipes using them, so this is great. Smoothies in the morning are the best!

    We must be on the same wavelength–I posted my favorite cherry smoothie this morning. Your smoothie looks yummy as well, but my heart and taste buds belong to this cherry-banana smoothie!

    I use juice instead of the milk and sometime bananas are great to thicken the smoothie as well.
