I’m in New York as of this afternoon for a media trip, so I’m keeping this short and sweet! I’ll report back on all of the good food I ate :).
Making smoothies, wether you add greens or not, is an easy way to add some beneficial nutrition to our day. As you know, Brian is an on the fence smoothie drinker. I have tried every which way to see if he’d enjoy one more than another. The jury is in, it makes no difference, he still makes a face while drinking them. Of course he likes some more than others, but still not his favorite.
Then there is me, a smoothie lover. More greens, the better. And this one, whoa, I love mango in my smoothies. I hadn’t had one in soooo long, and I was just in Orange County enjoying mangoes like candy, so it inspired me to make this easy mango banana smoothie.
