Banana Mango Smoothie Recipe

We are big smoothie drinkers here at my home. We make fruit smoothies at least twice a week. We tend to make them with whatever fruit is in-season or whatever I have on hand. One of my particular favorites to make is a good banana, mango and pineapple fruit blend smoothie! There is just something super delicious about combining all three of those fruits together into one tasty drink!

Banana Mango Smoothie Recipe

1 medium banana, sliced
1 mango, peeled and sliced
1 cup low-fat milk
1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon honey
handful of ice cubes

Place all of the above ingredients into your blender container except for the ice cubes. Blend for 10-15 seconds. Remove the lid and toss in a handful of ice cubes. Cover and blend until it's your desired consistency. Pour into chilled glasses and serve immediately.

Note: Sometimes when I don't have plain yogurt on hand...I will substitute with 1 cup of plain vanilla bean ice cream which makes it really good...but a tad more in the calorie department. You can use fresh or partially thawed (from frozen) bananas and mangoes with this recipe.

I always have bananas frozen so that I can make smoothies or other desserts. I love fruit smoothies the most and this is a delicious recipe using my favorite tropical fruits.
