Smoothie Sunday: Strawberry Peach Mango Smoothie
Summer is here! Which means that Smoothie Sunday is back! I have to admit, I’m feeling a bit intimidated about coming up with 3 months’ worth of smoothies for a third year in a row. But I shall do my best to bring you new smoothie ideas every Sunday. I also admit that Smoothie Sunday season snuck up on me a bit this year and I wasn’t totally prepared, meaning I was a bit lacking in supplies when it came time to start making smoothies. But we here at Poor Couple’s Food Guide are nothing if not thrifty and up for improvising. So first smoothie up this season wasn’t as carefully planned out as last year’s…this one was inspired solely by what fruit was around the house. Originally it was going to just be a peach mango smoothie, but I had some strawberries left from strawberry picking that had to be used before going bad, so in they went! I also forgot to buy yogurt, so I didn’t include yogurt in the smoothie I made, but I’m including it in the recipe because there wasn’t enough smoothie without it.
Strawberry Peach Mango Smoothie:
- 1 mango, seed and skin removed
- 1 peach, skin and pit removed
- 5 strawberries, hull removed
- ¼ cup (or 1 5.7 oz container) Greek yogurt (vanilla, mango, peach or strawberry)
- 6 ice cubes
- ¼ cup orange juice
- Honey to taste
- Salt to taste
Combine the first 6 ingredients in your blender and blend until smooth. Add honey and salt and blend to combine. Taste and make adjustments in salt and sweetener as necessary. Pour into a large glass, and enjoy!
