RECIPE: Vanilla Mango Express

RECIPE: Vanilla Mango Express

All aboard the TASTY TRAIN! Yeah, that’s right, I’m running with the train theme. I hope you bought your tickets in advance, and checked your FORMER BREAKFAST at the gate. Because it’s time to hop on board — the Vanilla Mango Express is heading straight for your MOUTH!

BAM!

Okay, all tackiness aside, let’s get to the recipe. This is one of my favorite morning-starters yet.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

½- ¼ mango

1.5 inch-2 inch thick slice of pineapple, spiny sides removed, cored

1 banana

¼ cup of vanilla yogurt

Pre-Vanilla Mango Express 2
All aboard the Vanilla Mango Express…

 

 PREPARATIONS:

Throw it all in the blender! I used an extra ripe pineapple, one that was actually LEAKING sweet juiciness. As I always say, the riper the better. In fact, this pineapple is so ripe…I better make a double batch in case it doesn’t last until tomorrow. Not like I’m complaining!

RIPE + PINEAPPLE = RIPEAPPLE
RIPE + PINEAPPLE = RIPEAPPLE
The train has arrived.
The train has arrived.

This smoothie comes out tasting like a tropical treat. And since I hear it’s been a cold blast recently in the Midwestern USA, let’s all take a moment to savor this smoothie and pretend we’re in a hammock in Costa Rica. Or lounging on the beach in Ft. Myers, Florida. Or literally anywhere else than where there is snow (like Ohio) or frigid ‘summer’ temperatures (like Cusco).

Feliz Smoothie!

Tell Ember all about it...
