Banana Mango Colada Smoothie (yes, for breakfast!)

Submitted by: KBRENNANATOR

Introduction

This is perfect to put in a travel mug & enjoy on the way to work on a hot summer day.

It was inspired by the banana frozen drink I had at the Hyatt in Maui.

Substituting fresh pineapple & mango for frozen is optional, but using frozen forgoes the need to crush ice.

Add some rum, and you have a killer cocktail!

Ingredients

    1 medium banana (or any size), fresh, cut in small chunks
    1-2 tsp. coconut cream (cream is best, but coconut milk or coconut water can be substituted)
    ---Note: I don't like coconuts, but the cream really enhances the flavor. For the calorie conscious, it can be removed, but it really makes it amazing.
    1/3 to 1/2 cup skim milk or coconut water
    ---Note: this can be omitted: It just makes it all easier to blend together
    1/2 packet of Truvia
    1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks
    1/4 cup frozen mango chunks
    Optional: 1/8 tsp. vanilla extract

    Equipment:
    A hand immersion blender with mixing cup or a blender

Directions


Blend the bananas, coconut cream, milk, & Truvia until banana is pureed.
Blend in remaining ingredients until smooth.

Note: For the easiest blending, add remaining fruit in increments, allowing the fruit to puree before adding more.

Makes (1) 12-16 oz. serving (definitely enough to fit in a travel mug)

For an even better treat:
1) Reduce the amount of mango in the recipe.
2) Blend frozen mango chunks and the remaining 1/2 packet of Truvia & make a puree.
3)Line a clear glass with the puree & then pour the banana smoothie.

Do not feel obligated to follow this recipe exactly! I love the mild taste of bananas, which is why I use less of the other fruits.

If you've found better substitutions, I would love to hear your ideas!
