Banana Mango Yogurt Smoothie

I don’t get how people can eat junk food all the time. There was one girl at work who would almost always eat McDonald’s for breakfast and Chinese food for lunch (or so it seemed). Don’t get me wrong – I love McDonald’s burgers and general tso’s chicken, but after eating grease and carbs for a week, my body rebels. I crave fruit and vegetables and think of how to incorporate them more into my meals. Veggies are a no brainer for me, but I’m not a pick-up-an-apple-and-eat kind of girl. Give me broccoli. Give me carrots. But oranges? Apples? Bananas? I want to thank whoever invented fruit smoothies because I made Banana Mango Yogurt Smoothies. Fruit doesn’t have to be boring anymore!

Smoothies were a treat for me as a kid. They were always expensive because of the fresh fruit, so I rarely bought them. Even in college, coffee was much cheaper than a smoothie. However, I would treat myself every few months so I didn’t completely miss out.

Then I started making smoothies at home. I wanted to make it as healthy as possible because I know some smoothies have a whole lot of sugar added. Even some juices you get from the juice aisle aren’t as healthy as you think with high fructose corn syrup and 10% real fruit juice.

I chose bananas and mangos because it is the middle of winter. I try not to buy peaches or berries until the summer because then I get them fresh from the farm. And yes, you can use frozen berries, but I wanted fresh fruit (er as fresh as you can get after being imported?).

This Banana Mango Yogurt Smoothie recipe is very versatile. Berries and bananas, bananas and peaches, peaches and berries, even berries and pineapple. I even used milk when I didn’t have yogurt, but if you do that, you may want to freeze some of the fruit for the cold element.

If I drink a glass, I can feel better about eating that cheesecake, right?

  • 1 cup sliced bananas (avoid any green in the banana)

    1. I’m obsessed with smoothies- have one every morning for breakfast or its a bad morning. ;)

      Love the sound of this smoothie. Feels kinda tropical for these frigid New York mornings!

    2. Bananas and mangoes are the most common things in my smoothies! I’ve never thought to keep ti simple with just them and yogurt though.

    3. I love the idea of freezing the yogurt! I know when I worked at Baskin Robbins in my teens we’d keep the milk for milkshakes slushy. Or maybe the temp of the fridge was too cold . . . who knows?

      This smoothie looks so tropical and simple–just 3 ingredients!

      I love to use frozen berries in my smoothies, and go a little nuts when berries are in season freezing trays of them and transferring to bags in my fruit and vegetable freezer. It’s always sad when we use the last bag of berries, especially if it’s April and we know it will be a few months before we can get more.

      Thanks!

    4. I stop eating fast food a long time ago (except sub sandwiches at a good deli around the corner). I still have not become a fan of smoothies. I think it is a texture thing. However, if I did, this flavor combo sounds wonderful. Lovely photos as always!

    5. This looks delicious! I had a rather large lunch and was searching for a good dinnertime smoothie, and I think I found it! Thank you, and your pictures are beautiful. :-)

    6. I Like veggies, but I am totally a fruit girl! This looks so yummy!

    7. I’m the smoothie queen in my house. I make and drink them before my exercise sessions or biking. They fill me up without making me nauseous. This smoothis sounds absolutely yum!

    8. Yum, this smoothie looks so creamy and delicious. I am SO making this tomorrow!

    9. Yeah, I can relate with you. I love McMuffin from McD, but always feeling greasy after eating it. And everyday? Definitely need a major detox. Banana + mango + yogurt – this is lovely!

    10. Banana mango is actually my favorite smoothie combo with lots of cinnamon. I keep peeled bananas in my freezer but I can’t get mangoes around here till summer.

    11. We are huge smoothie fans over here and I just love this recipe…bananas and mangos are two of my favs!

    12. This looks delish! My mom got me a bullet a year ago and I’m finally breaking it out and making myself some smoothies. I used to get them from taco bell when I was still in college and man.. I’ve missed them!

      • We had a smoothie bar at my college, so it was hard to walk by and not buy one! I ended up stealing er borrowing my parent’s blender in college so I could make my own.
