A few of my favorite things join forces today in this cold, creamy breakfast smoothie. Strawberries, mangoes, bananas, and/or granola are usually always apart of my breakfast in some form or another. But today, I blended them into this gorgeous drink.

Pretty drinks just taste better, right?

I’m a sucker for smoothies. I typically make a green smoothie after a workout, and when I’m feeling a little more indulgent – peanut butter chocolate is the way to go. But upon returning from Mexico this week, I craved nothing but juicy mangoes. The mangoes there are out of this world. Think of the sweetest, juiciest mango you’ve ever tasted. Then multiply that by 100 and you’re not even close to how incredible they were!

I’d go back to Mexico… just for the mangoes.

That being said, mangoes quickly worked their way into my morning smoothie.

You’re going to make two different smoothie layers today, as you can see. On the bottom we have a creamy mango banana smoothie made from frozen banana, frozen mangoes, and orange juice. As good as a tropical vacay.

Next, the strawberry smoothie. Fresh strawberries, a little milk, frozen banana, and strawberry yogurt. I used nonfat strawberry Greek yogurt, but regular yogurt would be fine. Vanilla, plain, honey, or banana flavors work well, too. Just use your favorite or whatever you have on hand.

Pour the mango smoothie in first, then layer with your favorite granola. I used a bunch of granola I hand in the pantry– a small mixture of Maple Almond ClustersPeanut Butter & Jelly Granola, and a broken up Nature Valley granola bar.

May I also suggest Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Granola, Maple Pecan Pie Granola, and/or Toasted Coconut Tropical Granola. Three favorites!

Simply layer the granola into the smoothie like you would do in a yogurt/fruit parfait. Add as much or little as you like.

What I loved is how the granola got a little soft as I worked my way through breakfast. You’ll love the added texture, as opposed to simply drinking a fruit smoothie. I’ve definitely found a new favorite here!

I apologize for the dark/too bright photos this morning. I shot these breakfast smoothies early yesterday morning and guzzled it down in about 10 seconds. I made one again today after my workout, but used 1 cup raspberries instead of strawberries. Try that next!

CHEERS!

      This is incredible, made it this morning and the kids loved it! We are going to give it to our women’s dieting group. The strawberries when used with a science diet cause the fat to come right off the body

    Isn’t fruit so much better in other places? I know I’m missing out every single time I travel and eat the produce. It’s a huge difference!

But after this particularly amazingly thick & creamy mango smoothie drink I was DONE w/ mangoes lol. Still like them, but sparingly. Your smoothie looks delish!

    This looks so good! So fresh and summery and just perfect! Your layers are so neat and pretty! For my first cookbook I did a PB&J smoothie and keeping the layers straight (and it was the dead of summer when I shot it and so hot and everything was melting), well, I made more than a few batches of smoothies to even get anything close to a swirled effect, not just a hot mess :) So all that is way of saying, great job on these images! So, so pretty! pinned

    This is so beautiful, Sally! I love the flavor combination…I am a pineapple maniac, so I’d love to toss in some of that too :) Natural colors are so pretty! It seems like so many people don’t think fruits and vegetables are “real” foods…everything has to be all processed and loaded with artificial colors. Your website proves everyday that fruit is delicious and homemade is best :D

Granola is one of my favourite things, and putting them together like this solves all my problems :) Thank you!! Pinned, and can’t wait to start making these daily!
