Tropical Fantasy Smoothie March 8, 2011

I love smoothies…They are so refreshing and healthy too! (well, ok, it depends on the smoothie..If you add alcohol, sugar, or ice cream…not so healthy.. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) I live in Sweden and the winters here are long, cold and dark so I’m really longing for spring and summer!ย  I can’t wait so I’ve been drinking a lot of smoothies lately and daydreaming about warmer weather.ย  So here’s a wonderful smoothie that will have you shining like the sun! Enjoy!

(2 servings)

1 banana (broken into chunks)
1 mango (cubed)
2 oranges (squeezed)
2 clementines (squeezed)

1. Put ingredients in a blender or food processor and cover.
2. Blend on high speed until smooth.
3. Garnish with an orange slice and serve immediately.

(Tip: This smoothie is naturally sweet, but a teaspoon or two of honey can be added for even more sweetness.)

(Tip 2: If you don’t have fresh oranges or clementines, you can use 3 dl (1ยผ c) orange juice from concentrate instead.)
