Mango and banana go together like butter and bread. This is another easy and smooth-flowing smoothie. The ripeness and soft texture of both fruits make a perfect smoothie blend. It is also a child-friendly smoothie. Enjoy!!!!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 ripe banana (chopped into chunks)
  • 1/2 of a very ripe mango (peeled and cut into cubes)
  • Very cold water

( There was a time when I used to put yogurt in my smoothies, but I now prefer using water alone, because it is healthier and tastes much fresher in my opinion. I find that the fruits have enough natural sugar in them already, so my smoothies still taste sweet especially with ripe fruits. Soy or almond milk are also healthy options but I no longer use them)

PREPARATION

  1. Toss the mango and banana chunks into your blender
  2. Using a measuring cup, pour in the amount of cold water or milk that you want. The amount of liquid you add will depend on how thick or thin you want your smoothie to be
  3. Cover the blender with the lid and then turn it on. Let it blend for about 15-20 seconds or until the blend looks nice and smooth.To check, turn off the blender, and stir the blend with a spoon.
  4. Pour into a glass cup and enjoy your delicious smoothie.
  5. To add some crunch, throw in some nuts like  peanuts, almonds, or cashews.

 THINGS TO NOTE

  • If you want your smoothie very cold, then you could prepare your fruits ahead of time and freeze them. When you are ready, just throw them in your blender and blend away OR you could use ice cubes and milk instead of water
