OK. Does a smoothie really merit its own blog post? Ordinarily I would say, “No”, however, today is different.
I make myself a breakfast smoothie pretty much every. single. morning. I love them. I even keep the blender out on the already-crowded counter just to make it easier so I don’t have to go to the bother of taking it out and putting it away every day.
My go-to smoothie is the run-of-the-mill strawberry-banana. Oh, don’t get me wrong; sometimes I get all crazy and substitute the 1% milk for almond milk. Or I might use blueberry yogurt instead of vanilla. Whoah!
But today, as I was arranging the fruit in the fruit bowl, it struck me…Mango!
Silky, creamy, sweet deliciousness.
Morning Glory Mango-Strawberry Breakfast Smoothie
In a blender:
1 C milk (your choice, but not chocolate)
1/2 C or one single-serving container yogurt (whatever flavor strikes your fancy; I prefer vanilla or strawberry)
1 fresh, ripe mango, peeled and sliced (I like the yellow mangoes)
4-5 frozen strawberries
Place lid on blender and get your motor running! Blend until smooth.
If you like it not quite as thick, add a little more milk and blend.
You can also add a scoop of protein powder for added boost.
Makes one giant breakfast-sized serving or two teaser-servings.
Calorie count: Bahahaha!
Yum factor: Off the hook!
