Mango-Yogurt Smoothie Recipe

Fresh Starts: Mango-Yogurt Smoothie

Anyone who knows me can attest to the fact that I'm not much of a morning person, so when it comes to weekday breakfasts, they usually involve whipping up the fastest meal possible that I can carry in one hand as I head out the door. I know it's not original, but these days I'm all about the smoothie; it's inexpensive to make, takes 30 seconds to blend, and can be enjoyed while walking to work, on the bus, or at the subway stop.

Since mangoes are in season, my favorite smoothie these days is a mix of cranberry juice, yogurt, and the fresh tropical fruit. The cranberry first struck me as random, but it adds a wonderful depth of flavor and a little more complexity. A better on-the-go breakfast, when you read more.

Ana bear, sometimes I add ground flaxseed, too. It has to be the crushed kind, not the whole — your body only absorbs flaxseed nutrients if the seeds are already ground!

Ooh! Yum! I make something similar but with I use pomogranite juice, soy milk and a combo of mango, strawberries, or blueberries and then add ice and a heaping spoon full of ground flaxseed. It makes me feel good to have more Omega-3's without eating all the fish...which i love but sometimes you just gotta be in a Salmon kind of mood.

This looks so good! And I agree tig3rbianca, I love the idea of using Greek yogurt.

Love mango smoothies, had one this morning with pineapple and chia seeds. Greek yogurt also has more protein than regular.
