This Pineapple, Mango and Orange Smoothie is delicious, filling, loaded with vitamins and can be ready in less than 5 minutes.
We’re having yet another cloudy and rainy day here, and I’m really in need of some serious sunshine. I decided the best way to get it would be to create it in a drink. So after looking in the freezer and finding some pineapple and mango chunks, I decided to make a Pineapple, Mango and Orange Juice Smoothie. So delicious! Now if I only had some sand and water maybe I could feel like I was on a tropical island…
I’m beginning to really enjoy smoothies, they are healthy, filling, quick to make and provide you with a good dose of vitamins. What’s really great is that you can use fresh or frozen fruit, just open your refrigerator or freezer and take a look at what you have, you can create so many different variations depending on what you have on hand. I actually prefer the texture of smoothies when I use frozen fruit. It makes it so thick and creamy, it feels like you are having a frozen treat! So next time you chop up a pineapple, remember to put some away in the freezer, you’ll be glad you did when you search your freezer for your next smoothie. Here is my recipe for Pineapple, Mango and Orange Smoothie or as I like to call it, sunshine in a glass.
