Half way through the week already. Time sure does fly by as you get older. I literally start my fall semester in a month. Like, HOW!? Didn’t I just finish my spring semester? Guess not.
Some time last week I asked my followers on Instagram what they’d like to see more of. Certain people responded saying they’d like to see more of heathy recipes and fashion posts. What you ask, you may receive, because I decided to feature my fav smoothie as today’s post! A fashion post will come soon, promise! Also, to the people who actually told me what they’d like to see more of – THANK YOU. Getting people to give me feedback on my blog is like trying to pull teeth out. So I seriously appreciate when people are willing to answer a few questions and give suggestions. It means so much when people on social media support my blog, and when they support me. The gesture of sharing or liking my posts on any of my social media platforms, or giving suggestions does not go unseen! The people who do this, you are truly the best. XO
+ A couple bananas
+ Handful of frozen mango chunks
+ Half cup of Almond Milk
+ Spoonful of all natural Peanut Butter – it thickens the smoothie (optional)
+ Chia and/or Hemp Seeds (optional)
+ Cacao Nibs (optional)
Put everything in a blender or food processor, and blend until smooth. So quick, so easy, so healthy, and soooo good!
I’ll have this smoothie for really any meal. I usually have the smoothie in the morning to kickstart my metabolism, along with a bowl of fruit or toast with avocado spread on it. If I double the smoothie, so I use three of four bananas and extra mango chunks, then the smoothie will really, really fill me up. Regardless, the smoothie seems to be more filling than you’d expect. The measurements I use are what work for me. I’ve been making this exact smoothie for like two years now, so I know what I like as far as how much of everything. Do what works for you. If you don’t like mango, then try pineapple or blueberries, just experiment!
Thank you for reading, everyone!! Let me know how you like this smoothie, because I literally just made this smoothie up one day. Yes, I’m sure there are hundreds of “banana/mango smoothies” out there, but I created this one in my own kitchen without having to search online. I think it’s delicious but I’m curious as to what you think!
