Mango Banana Smoothie -
Filled with fruits and flavor

Mangos and bananas are both used to thicken smoothies.  So what do you get when you combine them in a smoothie?  The thickest, creamiest smoothie ever.

I had never thought to combine both mango and bananas before, but once I did, I was delighted at the taste.    You can keep it simple and just add some nut milk and vanilla or honey for sweetness.   This will give you a smoothie with a light fruity flavour.

Or you can add other fruits as well.   Use pineapple and coconut for a Tropicana treat, berries for a berrylicious smoothie or orange juice for a citrus tang.

Ideally one of your fruits, either the mango or banana, needs to be frozen to get that characteristic chill.  If you find yourself with an abundance of bananas as I did, just peel and chop them, place into a Ziploc bag and chill in the freezer. 

Then as you make your mango banana smoothie, simply remove one of the bags from the freezer and pop the contents into your blender.
