Instead, this smoothie is made up entirely of fruits. Frozen bananas make up the base (can we all take a moment to thank the person who first thought to freeze bananas for this stuff), pineapple and mango add some sweetness, and a couple orange slices add a little bit of zesty flavor. This smoothie is full of vitamins and things like magnesium and potassium. According to Google.
The night before you make this smoothie, you need to freeze the banana and mango slices. Pineapple and oranges are pretty juicy, so I left them unfrozen. This balanced out the solid to liquid ratio once I added them all to a blender, and I didn’t even need to add anything else to it.
When I made this over the weekend, it was freezing and rainy. These tropical flavors were the perfect thing to brighten up my morning! I should probably make it again in the next few days because we’re supposed to have our coldest weather yet here in Alabama. In the teens! I cannot accurately describe how much I hate cold weather.
Tropical Sunshine Smoothies will cure your winter blues, though. Try it!
- 1 medium banana, sliced and frozen
- ½ cup cubed fresh mango, frozen
- ½ cup cubed fresh pineapple
- 2-3 small orange slices
- Combine all ingredients in a blender. Add the ingredients so that the pineapple and orange slices are closest to the blades, that way the frozen banana and mango will blender together easier. Blend until smooth!
I might make these again this weekend, except with coconut rum.
