I’ve been on a huge smoothie kick lately. I think it might be because I use a lot of frozen fruit, so they kind of taste like sorbet to me! Maybe that’s why I like them so much!
My favourite thing about smoothies is that I can get a bunch of different fruit into one easy to drink meal, and I can make one for a fast breakfast, take one with me on the way to work, or on the way to the gym with me when I go to GoodLife Fitness. I also like that smoothies are pretty filling, and since I use a small blender, they are almost mess-free.
As part of my obsession this month, I’ve been swapping my usual lunches for smoothies. In this post, I’m sharing my current favourite smoothie of the moment, what I’m calling the Peach Mango Tango. Here’s the list of what you’ll need to make it…
- 2 cups of frozen fruit mix (I used a mix of peach, mango, strawberry)
- 1 banana
- 3 tablespoons of french vanilla yogurt
- 1 teaspoon honey
To make this smoothie, start by adding your ingredients into your blender, starting with the banana.
Next add the frozen fruit. I like to blend everything right out the freezer so it keeps a nice frosty consistency and gives it that sorbet texture.
I like to add the yogurt and honey last so that part hits the blades first and helps to keep everything moving as it blends.
Now, mix everything together! I use the Nutribullet since I love making a single serving size and it’s really easy to clean afterwards.
Here’s the final drink!
I love to make smoothies as snacks as well, as a way to get more vitamins into my diet rather than junk food. I try to use fresh fruit as often as possible, but frozen fruit is also a great alternative, and can stay in the freezer a lot longer than the fresh stuff. I’ve gotten into the habit of buying a bunch of different frozen fruit bags and now I have a full freezer of fruit so that I can mix and match them for new smoothie flavours. It also makes it really convenient when I am in a rush and I don’t have to wash or cut up fruit because it’s already done!
As part of this next month’s fitness goal, I’m hoping to get to the gym at Goodlife Fitness more often, possibly on my lunch breaks, so I have an energy boost mid-day, but we’ll see if my schedule allows for it! Come back next month to see how that goes and get another healthy recipe!
