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 .

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!

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 Smile.  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 . . . .
