Smoothie Recipe: Mango Banana Berry

by on December 19, 2011

I love making healthy smoothies for my family. We have owned our Vitamix blender for 6 years now and despite its many capabilities, we blend up smoothies 90% of the time!

On a recent shopping trip at Trader Joe’s, I purchased some juice and several bags of frozen fruit along with some Kefir. When I make smoothies, I am known to just throw in whatever I can find in my produce drawer, my fruit bowl, or my freezer and I never measure. So bear with me as I jot this recipe down for you and know that the combinations of fruit/juice/yogurt/kefir/veggies etc are truly endless. This recipe makes 2 large servings or 2 medium and 2 small (for my whole family :)

Mango Banana Berry Smoothie

  • 1 cup Trader Joe’s Orange Peach Mango juice
  • 1 cup Trader Joe’s Strawberry Kefir (or Plain Whole Milk yogurt)
  • 1/2 ripe banana
  • 5 frozen strawberries
  • 6 frozen raspberries
  • 1/4 cup frozen wild blueberries
  • 5 frozen mango chunks
  • 1 orange, peeled

Combine all ingredients in blender in order listed. Blend until smooth. Serve immediately.

Feel free to adjust the liquid measurements to your desired consistency of the end product. Many times that I make smoothies, I will throw in a carrot or two or a chunk of apple and a handful of fresh spinach leaves. It will turn your smoothie odd colors but the taste is completely masked by all that berry goodness and you get a powerhouse of nutrition in your glass :)

Smoothies are a fantastic way to get extra vitamins and minerals in your kids (or your husbands!)

What is your favorite smoothie recipe?
