Banana Mango Pineapple Protein Smoothie


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.

  1. I love making smoothies! I use chia instead of flax as flax is a natural contraceptive and I want a baby! I haven't tried mango in a smoothie yet though!

  6. I love smoothies!! I've been doing smoothie bowls lately - they are delicious and so filling. But I like a regular smoothie that I can drink sometimes too. And YES - holy prices on the fresh produce around here too. I bought green beans the other day, and we get quite a bit because everyone just snacks on them raw here, and it was over $10!!! I bought over $10 worth of green beans. crazy.

  7. Sounds amazing! I agree, the cost of fresh produce is redonkulous these days... not to mention the rate at which it goes bad is exponentially faster than frozen.
    My son loves mangos and bananas-- I'm going to try and whip this up for him. Thank you! #abitofeverything
