Mangoes, A Superfruit For A Super Smoothie

A Delicious New Creation

A Delicious New Creation

It’s been awhile since I shared a new smoothie recipe.  Today I decided to try a new concoction of mango, strawberry, blueberry and banana.  Mangoes are rich in nutrients such as fiber, vitamins C, D and E, and more; making it a “superfruit”.  The berries and banana also are rich in important vitamins and antioxidants. Even with the healthy fruit already in the blender, I didn’t stop there. I also tossed in Yo-Plus yogurt and wheat germ to add extra nutrition to the smoothie.

Wheat germ contains protein from the wheat berry, iron, folic acid and over 20 other valuable nutrients, such as potassium and vitamin E.  And don’t worry, the term “germ” doesn’t refer to anything gross, it refers to the process of germination of the wheat.  Athletes often use wheat germ to maintain cardiovascular function and improve endurance levels.

The new blend tasted creamy and had just the right amount of sweetness.  I don’t often use mango in smoothies, but I had bought a large container of already sliced mangoes from Costco a couple weeks ago, and froze half of the container.  Frozen fruit makes all the difference in a smoothie’s texture. You can get more of a milkshake like consistency, without having to add ice.  Here is the new recipe, enjoy!

Step by Step

Step by Step

Mango Berry Banana Smoothie


1 cup of sliced mango, frozen
1/4 cup sliced blueberries, frozen
1/4 cup sliced strawberries, frozen
1/2 a small banana, frozen
1 small container of Yoplait’s Yo-Plus blueberry acai yogurt
1 cup of orange juice (add more as needed)
1 tbsp of wheat germ


Place all of the ingredients into a blender.  Run the blender on ice crushing mode until the fruit starts to blend with the yogurt and juice. Then blend until smooth, about 2 minutes. Pour into a tall glass and enjoy!
