Peach Mango Smoothie Recipe

One of my favorite fruit smoothie combinations happens to be peach and mango! I seriously could drink one of these smoothies almost every day! There is just something delicious about combining juicy peaches with juicy mangoes which makes them just perfect!

When I make these smoothies I like to use this quick and easy recipe. When it comes to the milk...I use whole milk but my husband who is on a diet using skim milk. My mother on the other hand will use coconut milk and my adult daughter prefers almond milk. You can use your favorite milk! In addition, I don't add any type of sugar because I find adding the honey makes it sweet enough for me. However, my daughter adds a teaspoon of granulated sugar and a 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon to hers while mixing the ingredients in the blender.

Peach and Mango Smoothies Recipe

1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups frozen sliced peaches
1 cup frozen sliced mangoes
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup ice cubes

In your blender container combine all of the above ingredients together. I toss my peaches and mangoes into the container partially thawed from my freezer. I like to thaw them partially in the refrigerator for 2 hours before blending or at room temperature for 20-30 minutes. Cover the container and process for 15 to 20 seconds or until it's the desired consistency that you prefer. Pour into chilled glasses and enjoy immediately.

I love fruit smoothies and I agreed oth you that the honey combined with the fruits should make it sweet enough. I have not yet tried to use either almond milk or coconut milk, perhaps that will be in my next smoothie.
