Summer is about smoothies.

Okay–maybe it is about a few other things besides smoothies and maybe you can drink them in the winter too, but this creamy mango banana smoothie is perfect for summer.

Ben and I love to go to a great Lebanese place around us. So much so that they know us. They have a lot of fresh juices and smoothies but let’s be honest, I’m more concerned about the fattoush, shawarma and pita bread. If we have any room left in our bellies after stuffing our faces with those, we often will get mango smoothies for the road.

This mango smoothie recipe isn’t an exact replica but I love the fresh taste of mango in it. It’s refreshing and delightful. As you can see, I had to pry it out of E’s hands to get a sip. She was obbbbbbsesssssssed.  Girl had to have had brain freeze going on.

This could honestly pass for a milkshake. Mango Milkshake. The milk and frozen banana give it that thick smooth feeling that you’d expect from a milkshake. You’ll never even notice that you’re using skim milk.

A touch of honey is optional, since it is plenty sweet from the fruit. However, I do love the flavor that the honey adds. Just a little something special, you know?

She approves. So will you.
