Another one of my new year’s resolutions was to pay attention to details (aka. put in the effort!), and people, that’s going to reflect in my blog from now on! So- when I made these amazingly yummy and simple blueberry, mango and banana smoothies, I bothered (instead of just DRINKING IT like I really wanted) to get out matching glasses, thread some fresh blueberries on sticks, hunt down some cute straws and even pick a little apple mint from Mum’s herb garden (mmhmmm, you heard me- herbs are happening).
And in my oh-so-humble opinion, they look awesome.
So. Uh, did I mention how super difficult they were to make? Alright, let me walk you through this one. You better be taking notes. Frozen yogurt, meet blueberries, banana and mango. Annnd blend.
But seriously. Do this with whatever fruit. Let your imagination run wild! Like a deer, or something. But don’t put deer in your smoothie. That would be weird. Try some raspberries or pineapple instead. Or some honey/vanilla/cinnamon/coconut, if you like. Just not deer, kay?
But it’s the yogurt that does the trick. I literally just froze my own greek yogurt. (In a plastic container that I then somewhat destroyed). Mum had the bright idea of freezing it in ice cube containers instead. Clever woman, she is.
But I’m not done with the yogurt. It added the perfect amount of tang. Made it refreshing, and all that.
Okay, okay. Here’s a proper recipe, with measurements and stuff.
Blueberry, Mango and Banana Smoothies
1 large mango, peeled and roughly chopped.
A handful of blueberries (technical, I know.)
1 banana, roughly broken.
1 cup frozen greek yogurt.
Place all ingredients in a food processor, and blend until smooth.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you love these as much as I do! (Which is a lot. You have big smoothie-loving shoes to fill.)
