Oh yes, another smoothie post (don’t worry, normal foods are coming soon!). This one is purely fruit flavored, though – I wanted to get some fruit into Alex, so I figured making myself a smoothie without all the green stuff would be something he’d more likely try for a snack. I was right. 🙂 He was a bit upset with me that I put flax seeds in it, though, and he doesn’t like greek yogurt (although you really cannot tell the difference in this smoothie), so he made a bit of a fuss. He doesn’t know I also put walnuts in it, though. Heh. Have to sneak in protein and those good fats somewhere!
This smoothie was delightfully refreshing. Using frozen strawberries really gave it the perfect chill. I only have half a mango left now; I can’t decide whether I should make another batch of a smoothie or just enjoy it on its own.
Strawberry Mango Smoothie
makes about 2 cups
half a mango, peeled and seeded
4-5 large frozen strawberries (or 10 small ones)
1-5.3 oz. container of vanilla greek yogurt (I like Brown Cow)
about 1/2 cup milk (I used vanilla rice milk)
2 T walnuts
1 T flax seeds
1/2 frozen banana, peeled (for sweetness)
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
