Mango & Banana Smoothie Recipe

Since spring has sprung, I have decided to incorporate more fruits into my diet as we all know that summer will soon be here! I also like to eat relatively healthy when the weather is a bit sunnier; you can get away with bad eating in the winter! I find smoothies super convenient when in a mad rush and they're a great way of getting a few of your five a day in one hit. This mango and banana smoothie contains only ingredients that are good for you and it tastes delicious too, believe me, this is no April Fools!

Ingredients (easily serves 2):

1 small mango or half a large mango

1 banana

Juice of half a lemon

1 cup of almond milk

Mis en place (prep your ingredients)

Chop the mango and banana into small pieces so it is easier to blend.

Put all of your fruit in the blender and add half the juice of a lemon. This will stop the banana from browning quickly.

Pour 1 cup of almond milk into the blender. You can't even taste the almonds once blended, but it has so many health benefits!

Blend all of your ingredients together, and there we have it! 

Enjoy your delicious fruity beverage!
