Mango Banana Smoothie – Wake up to this incredibly delicious and creamy Mango Banana Smoothie made with fresh mango, banana, honey and milk.
Let’s do Smoothies for din din!
I know. I’m serving something healthy. Again. Seriously, though… don’t you agree that we all needed to lay off the gooey S’mores Brownie Cookies and dive into the uber healthy Apple Avocado Salsa? Balance. It’s good for us. Supposedly.
Oh! And I am not going to pretend like I didn’t notice. So I forgot to add one more word (banana) to the title on my photo. Sue me! (Don’t!) I mean, everyone messes up on the text that covers half of their photo. Everyone does it… Yes, they do!
(Can’t believe I JUST noticed it! Facepalm!)
Suddenly I feel like I’m jumping on the Smoothie bandwagon, starting with that Diet Mixed Berry Smoothie, but that’s not entirely true. My blog jumped on it. I, on the other hand, have been on it for about 20 years.
My dad, the guy that juices everything, taught me all I needed to know about smoothies and milkshakes and juices… My sister and I used to get a kick out of watching him blend, or sometimes juice everything in site. Peppers and strawberries, together. Oranges, bananas, and zucchini, yes, together.
But, that’s how he does it, and we don’t judge. We just enjoy. Sometimes.
When I found myself staring at some mangoes some time ago, a vision of dad-making-smoothies episode flashed before my eyes. At the time, I really am not sure if my dad knew what a mango even was, but he pretended. He pretended well. He shoved that mango in the blender and gave it a whirl together with some strawberries and bananas, but he didn’t know that mangoes have a pit… You can imagine the rest. Bon voyage, sweet little blender. 🙂
Still makes me laugh.
Having said that, not only do smoothies satisfy my milkshake craving, but also my urge to play with the blender, just like my dad.
This particular Mango Banana Smoothie is a beautiful and fresh mix of mango and bananas, blended with honey and milk. It has been on my rotation this entire summer, especially these last few crazy-hot days. Give it a whirl, you may love it as much as we do.
