Banana, Blueberry & Mango Smoothie

This Banana, Blueberry & Mango Smoothie is the perfect quick breakfast to blend up before school. Make morning prep easier by making smoothie packs of the fruit for easy blending.

Growing up in South Florida, my summers have always been complete with mangos straight off the tree in my backyard. I’ve become spoiled and now can’t imagine my smoothies without mango chunks.

Did you know mangos being “in season” in the U.S. is actually a myth? There are about six different types grown around the country year-round!

Nutrition Tip: Eating bananas can give you enough energy to fuel a workout. The potassium in a banana can also help you stay focused and alert.

Blueberries are rich in antioxidants, so incorporating them into you and your kid’s breakfast can help with morning mental clarity, digestion, and lowering blood pressure.

Mix the iron, calcium, zinc, and magnesium with the potassium in bananas, and you’ve got a nutritious blend! Mangos also aid digestion and boost your immune system.

Don’t be afraid of frozen fruit! If you prefer purchasing fresh produce but then want to freeze them, the average shelf life for frozen blueberries and mangos ranges from 10-12 months, and bananas are good anywhere from 2-3 months.

There’s no denying this nutrient-packed smoothie will fill you up at ANY time of the day. If you’re looking for new smoothie combinations, our Build Your Own Smoothie guide has endless possibilities. Print it out and add to your fridge to discover new combos every morning.
