I’ve been making smoothies for a long time, but I feel like I finally discovered the secret to perfect smoothies… frozen bananas! I was skeptical at first, but they make everything so sweet and creamy and delightful. I’ve found that if I add a banana to a smoothie, I don’t need to add any sugar or honey at all to sweeten it. (I usually wait until my bananas are getting a little spotty and then just throw them in the freezer to save for smoothies.) I also really like to use a mixture of fresh and frozen fruit, especially because it means I don’t have to add any ice and water down the smoothie. This smoothie is so easy to make and so simple too!
Mango Pineapple Smoothie
1 frozen ripe banana
3/4 cup frozen mango chunks
3/4 cup fresh pineapple chunks
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup milk (I usually use soy or almond milk)
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Add more milk or juice as needed to thin out the smoothie to the desired consistency. Enjoy!
