Interesting fruit fact: Mango trees can live for very long times an some varieties still bear fruit after 300 years. Here’s a Mango Pineapple smoothie all mango fans (and all fruit fans) will love.
Its also easy to turn this Mango Pineapple smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
In your favorite blender mix:
3/4 cup cold milk (your choice, soy, low fat, no fat)
1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chopped fresh mango
1 cup chopped fresh pinapple
1 tbsp Chia seed
Ice to taste
Note: If you use frozen mango and pineapple you probably won’t need to add ice.
