I swear May should be re-named May madness. It’s almost worst than December. This month has been non-stop and it’s only the middle of the month. I seriously can’t wait for summer and this is the first year that I can truly say that. I can’t wait to sleep in, kick back with the kids and just chill at the pool. I may even chill out with one of these smoothies.
Anyway, amongst all this madness of racing to and from everything, I want to give my kids a healthy snack where I can. The weather has been warm and summer-like lately so smoothies are back in my kid’s radar. They love this spinach smoothie as well as this spinach one, but sometimes they want a good old-fashioned creamy smoothie. Who can blame them? This is an easy smoothie to throw together and is perfect this time of year as strawberries are at their peak!
strawberry, mango & banana smoothie:
serves two 9oz glasses (or 2 kids)
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup vanilla flavored Greek yogurt
- 1 cup frozen mango – you can use fresh as well, but make sure you throw in some ice cubes.
- 1/2 cup fresh strawberries, (about 4-5) rinsed and stems removed
- 1 large, ripe banana
Get out your blender and throw in the orange juice, Greek yogurt, mangos, strawberries and banana.
Give it a whirl until blended.
Summer here we come! We love pairing this smoothie with our favorite popcorn.
