Holy moly, fresh produce is expensive right now.
I'm grateful for all of the frozen fruit in my freezer. It's been handy for all the smoothie making that's been going on around here.
I usually just toss things into the blender on the fly, and most of the time the end result is great, although I have to admit to a few disasters that I ended up choking back because no one else would drink them.
This banana mango pineapple smoothie was gone in seconds. It was that good.
Banana Mango Pineapple Protein Smoothie
2 medium size bananas (I use over-ripe, frozen bananas)
1 cup pineapple chunks, fresh or frozen
1 cup frozen mango chunks
1 scoop (1/3 cup) vanilla protein powder
1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
2 prunes (dried plums)
1 tbsp flax seeds
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 1/2 - 2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or any milk of choice)
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. I use a Blentec blender and it mixes things up beautifully. If your blender is less powerful, you may want to process your flax seeds in a spice mill or coffee grinder first.
