When I sip into this smoothie, and have my eyes closed, it feels like I’m at the beach. No kidding. It’s my “escape-to-the-beach-in-my-head” smoothie. I can feel the warm sand between my toes, sunshine on my face, and probably imagine a little umbrella on my drink. May I introduce to you my super easy, beach-inspired, three-ingredient, Mango Strawberry smoothie. Pack your bags, friends! You’re going to the beach!
Three ingredients are mangoes, frozen strawberries and pineapple juice. And then just blend it all up. That’s it!! An additional ice cube or two if you must, but is completely optional.
I use my single serve Ninja blender to make smoothies a lot, and I love love it. So easy, less cleanup, and that thing crushes food like nobody’s business! Because of that, this recipe is single serve, but double, triple or quadruple up as you please.
I recommend using frozen strawberries so that you have that crushed ice texture in your smoothie, and if you want more of that texture, add an ice cube or two. I made it without and it was just fine.
This is a great recipe if you have leftover mangoes. Although typically, if I have leftover mangoes, it ends up in my belly. But just in case it doesn’t, here’s one where you can transform it into a cool little drink for breakfast or lunch or healthy dessert! Enjoy!
