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!
