Pineapple Mango Smoothie Recipe

7

pineapple-mango-smoothie-recipeThis tropical creamy smoothie would be great for breakfast.  Just cut the mango, pineapple the night before and put it in the freezer so it’s ready by morning, throw all the ingredients in a blender, pour and go!  This will quickly become a regular breakfast smoothie for the whole family.  The only thing I did notice about this particular smoothie is that you can’t really put it in the fridge for hours and drink it later, it becomes sour.  So keep that in mind if you are thinking of making it ahead of time, I hate throwing food out, especially fruit!

Here are some highlights for this smoothie.  It provides a whopping 544.6 mg of Potassium, this is great because potassium is a very important part of your diet and most people really do not get enough.  Potassium is necessary for good muscle contraction and healthy electrical activity in the heart.  So heart health is a great reason to try to add potassium rich foods to your daily routine.  There is also 108.6% of your daily Vitamin C requirements in this smoothie.  Vitamin C is well known for keeping your immune defenses up against the millions of germs you encounter on a daily basis.  I don’t know about you, but my family can use all the help we can get to keep sickness from germs at bay.

So go ahead and next time you are at the grocery store pick up these simple ingredients and give this great tasting healthy smoothie a try.  I promise you won’t regret it.
