Strawberry Mango Smoothie

One of my favorite flavor combinations I’ve come across in my life is strawberry and mango.  It is such a refreshing, tasty, and packed with the flavor of summer!  It is reminiscent of my honeymoon to Jamaica, where my favorite drink was some sort of frozen strawberry and mango flavored daiquiri.  I would do anything to go back to those warm, sunny beaches!

Smoothies are a great way to add an extra serving or two of fruit and dairy to your day.  I like to drink one of these mid-morning alongside a handful of nuts to keep me nourished and filled up until lunchtime.  I like to use frozen fruit so my smoothies don’t get watered down with ice.   Take a sip and imagine you’re sitting by the pool – it will bring you there for just a moment. 😉
