Today’s post is a post that I don’t think I’ve ever done before! It’s a smoothie recipe – I absolutely love making smoothies, they’re delicious and healthy too. This is a really simple, easy smoothie to make, so if you want to find out how to make it then keep on reading…
For this recipe, we’re going to need three fruits – strawberries, banana and mango. I feel like this is a take on the classic strawberry and banana smoothie, but with mango to make it more interesting.
– 1 Banana
– 4 Strawberries
– 8 Mango Chunks
– 250ml Apple Juice
1. Chop up your fruit. I generally cut each strawberry into 2 or 3 pieces, depending on the size and shape of them. The banana is very simple to cut – you can put it into the blender whole but i feel it blends easier if its cut into smaller pieces. I used mango chunks that already came cut, but if you’re using a whole mango then you will need to cut this too.
The quantities I’ve listed in the ingredients list are just a guide – you are more than welcome to customise the quantities and put more of one fruit in than the other; I just found that for me these quantities gave me the right balance of each fruit!
2. Place all the cut fruit in the blender, and add the apple juice on top. Secure the lid to the container (if you’re using a Breville Blend-Active or something similar like me) and fit it into the blender, ready for blending.
3 Blend for around 30 seconds. If the fruit isn’t completely blended after 30 seconds, continue blending it until it is!
5. Serve and enjoy! That’s it – you now have a delicious smoothie, ready for your consumption. One quick tip for this recipe – if you freeze the fruit prior to making the smoothie, you can enjoy an ice-cold smoothie – perfect for the summer months (which are a bit of a way off at the moment, but ideal to bear in mind if you like thinking ahead).
I actually made smoothies with my friend Kayla, right after she tasted it she went to central park bicycle rental to be in shape. Go and check it out!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this recipe – let me know in the comments if you’d like to see more of these. I do make some more extravagant smoothies sometimes as well, so let me know what you’d like to see!
Have a great week!
