Start your day with this delicious frozen mango apple banana smoothie recipe!
This mango apple banana smoothie has got to be our favourite and easiest smoothie recipe. I make one for my daughter’s breakfast nearly every day.
We used to have a B&B business and offer fresh fruit for our guests for breakfast.
However, after a day or two, some of the fruit would lose its ‘new’ appearance and would be no longer fit to offer to guests, especially the bananas.
So this was a great way to use up the still perfectly good fruit, so it did not go to waste, and provide a healthy breakfast for some lucky person.
We also used up any fruit juice that may be leftover by the guests so we can get a slightly different taste every day if we want. Sometimes we may use apple juice, sometimes orange juice or sometimes even apple and mango juice – whatever we have available to use.
All fruit juices have health benefits as well as being delicious.
Even though we closed our B&B business back in 2019, we still make these smoothies for breakfast or as a healthy snack during the day.
Frozen mango chunks
We get our frozen mango chunks from Aldi, which is super affordable and has a great selection of red frozen fruits too.
All of the frozen fruits are great and so convenient because we can’t get all these fruits fresh every month of the year.
We stock these frozen fruit bags in our freezer and always have the ingredients available to make tasty and healthy smoothies in any season.
But we love using frozen mangoes especially because of the creamy and smooth consistency that we can get from them.
All other fruits for this smoothie we can keep and use at room temperature.
We make our smoothies using a Magic Bullet blender. This is a great little smoothie maker, for soft fruits and when you are not trying to blend too much ice. We bought one of these a while ago now, and they really are awesome.
It suits us as we tend to use frozen fruit cubes which are softer than ice, and hence we do not have to add ice to our smoothies.
Also, it has a lot of accessories so you can blend your smoothie ‘to go’ in the same cup. Handy.
If you are wanting to blend higher volumes than just a single smoothie, or lots of ice cubes, then a more powerful unit might be better. Nutribullet also makes other more powerful blenders that will literally blend almost anything. Check them out on some of the Amazon links below!
They blend in no time and have plenty of sealable cups and containers that you can take with you to work or on your travels.
If you are looking for an even more nutritional punch, consider adding greens like spinach, kale, or cucumber to your smoothie. These vegetables blend well with fruits and add valuable vitamins, minerals, and fibre to your drink.
Good luck with making some tasty smoothies. There are plenty of other healthy smoothies recipes in the links below!
