Do you ever have those days, when you are not sure what exactly you are craving? I do, almost every morning. Smoothies are one of my favourite breakfasts, they’re super easy, quick and nutritious. With so many sweet, creamy, thick and fruity blends I’m always a little indecisive as to what to throw into my blender each morning. Almost all fruit tastes amazing together, but there is something extra special about this mango smoothie. The combination of mango, frozen banana and orange is to die for. The frozen banana makes this smoothie taste like melted ice cream, so sweet and refreshing. Of course this smoothie is totally delicious by itself, but if you want to amp up the super-food status of it then add this suggested blueberry topping too, which is not only amazing for your health, it compliments the sweetness of the mango blend perfectly. Really quick to make, you’ll be on a health high in no time.
