Mango Strawberry Banana Smoothie

20



I found this wonderful smoothie image on Flickr.com and then found the smoothie recipe on Sandra’s Recipes at http://sandrarecipeblogsite.blogspot.com. Not only is this mango, strawberry, banana smoothie a treat for the tongue, it is a visual delight for the eyes. Sandra has done a masterful job creating this smoothie. Please visit her site to find more recipes (and every recipe has a photo). This smoothie needs to be built in two colorful layers. It takes a little extra time, but you and anyone you share this smoothie with will be delighted at the results.

An added feature for this smoothie is the fact that is a non-dairy smoothie.

A slightly different version from Barbara, “I tweaked it up a bit and used 3/4 cup of pineapple instead of mango…and lemon juice instead of lime juice.”

    I would like to say that I have tried many smoothies and i don’t like any smoothies. I found this recipe today and decided to try it and I loved it! Its my first smoothie that I actually like! Thank you so much for posting it!

    That smoothie looks divine! The color of my juices/smoothies is something I’ve been working on myself recently. I’m making some beautiful yellows, reds and greens. But layered drinks?!?! That’s going to take things to a whole new level! Cheers.

    My wife and I are both trying to shed a few pounds and would like limit our calorie intake. Does anyone have a calorie count on this drink?

    My sister, mom, and I made this and it was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
    My sister does not like banana smoothies so she didn’t like it as much, but my mom & I loved it. It would make a good drink idea for a tropical/beach birthday party!!!!!!!!!

    That’s a lot of honey which I’m not sure what the point of is. The banana and mango should make this drink sweet enough.

      @Arias Try using less and add if you need more. I truly believe smoothies deserve a personal touch.

    i made it with all frozen fruit and its good but the top layer was denser than the bottom and sunk through.

  10. Reply Jaytee March 8, 2012

    I made the mistake of adding a pineapple to the bottom layer. It tasted fine but it was practically all pulp!

    I’d say unless you’re just subbing out pineapple juice for the OJ, that particular fruit is not a great idea.

    • Reply Confused smoothy maker March 26, 2013

      Yeah what’s that white stuff in the middle? From the smoothy with a twist?

      • Reply Confused also March 27, 2013

        Mr. Blender Man:
        I am also confused. Is the white stuff in the middle ice cream? Yogurt? Please help

        • Reply Confused a lot March 30, 2013

          Heeeelp! I’m making this for my family and I want it to be perfect. Is the white stuff in the smoothy with a twist banana?
