Yum, pineapple mango smoothie! Last week at the store I found frozen pineapple and mango on sale so I had to make something a little different with them . I really enjoyed this smoothie but my kids were not willing to try it, however, they gobbled down bowls of mango and pineapple at night! Again, we try something a little out of the ordinary my kid will grateful eat better!
I started off with my trusty Magic Bullet blender and placed about a 1/4 cup mango and 1/4 cup pineapple .
|Pineapple||Bromelain, yay! Ever heard of this miracle anti-inflammatory nutrient? Pineapple contains a great source of bromelain which is an enzyme shown to help prevent osteoarthritis and alleviate joint pain!|
|Mango||Only 60 calories per serving!
Loaded with vitamin C helpful in immunity, plus a good source of vitamin A, which promotes healthy skin!
Next, the bulk of the smoothie – Greek yogurt! This one is honey flavored but you could even do Chobani’s mango or pineapple yogurt, too! Oh my gosh, I gotta try that next!
Loaded with protein and super filling. This smoothie has 19 grams of protein.
Next I topped it off with a little orange juice and skim milk.
Blend away and here is a great snack, breakfast or whatever! Darn it, I should have used that unopened bottle of pineapple rum from our honeymoon in the Bahamas . Yes, that is just about 7 years ago and we still have not opened that bottle, probably because rum is not my fav but I have never tried pineapple flavored, hmmm . . . .
