Banana - Mango Smoothie

Friday, August 22, 2008

I somehow thought Smoothie was some kind of a diet drink & was only for calorie concious people & never bothered to try it out.

After my workout at the gym, I tagged along with a friend of mine to the mall for our regular shopping. We noticed a new juice junction & realised how thirsty we were after the workout. My health conscious friend happened to order a Smoothie, while I ordered my regular Chocolate Milkshake with Ice-Cream ( My workout for the day went in vain !! )

My friend insisted that I take a sip of her smoothie, I tasted awesome .. I realised what I was missing all these days .. And now Iam a BIG Smoothie fan.

My favourite is the Banana-Mango smoothie. Smoothies are slightly thicker in consistency than milkshakes. A smoothie is very refreshing on a hot day & after tiring workouts.

Here's my favourite smoothie recipe,

You will need:
  • 1 Banana - cut into chunks

  • 1/2 a slice of Mango - any variety - peeled & cubed

  • 2 tsp - brown sugar
  • 1 cup yogurt

  • 1/4 cup chilled milk

  • Ice cubes


  1. Blend together Banana chunks, Mango cubes, sugar, yogurt & milk until smooth

  2. Pour into tall glassed, Top with ice cubes, serve chilled

Enjoi !!!

I went a step ahead & made my smootie extra healthy by adding low-fat yogurt & skimmed milk. I could'nt afford to drink more of chocolate milkshakw with ice cream & ruin my workouts !! Whenever I go out, I always order a smoothie now.

Smoothie is the BEST :)

Off goes my smoothie to Sangeeth's Event, Eat Healthy - Calcium Rich
