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!

Description

Juicy strawberries, mangos, bananas, and your favorite granola come together in this healthy layered smoothie!


Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Make sure you have a strong, powerful blender that will blend up the frozen banana and mango. I like this Ninja or this Vitamix.
  2. Blend 1 banana, the mango, and orange juice together until smooth. Add more orange juice if it is too thick. Scrape down the sides of the blender as needed. Pour equally into 2 glasses.
  3. Rinse out the blender and blend 1 banana, the strawberries, yogurt, and milk together until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the blender as needed. Layer some granola on top of the mango banana smoothie layer, then pour the strawberry smoothie on top. Top with more granola.
  4. Serve immediately.

Notes

  1. Yogurt: Use any yogurt you love or have on hand: regular, Greek, nonfat, low fat, strawberry, banana, vanilla, honey flavored.
  2. Milk: Use your favorite milk – I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
  3. Granola: I suggest the following tasty granolas- Maple Almond ClustersPeanut Butter & Jelly GranolaOatmeal Raisin Cookie GranolaMaple Pecan Pie Granola, and/or Toasted Coconut Tropical Granola.

    1. 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

  1. This looks like a nutritious and healthy way to start the day — not to mention how bright and pretty it is! I’ve never had mangoes while in Mexico, but I can only imagine how sweet and flavorful they must have been.

  2. That looks MUCH better than the protein bar I had for breakfast. Love the two layers!
    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!

    1. Yes, Mir – fruit is so much better elsewhere. The fresh mango, pineapple, and watermelon was mind-blowing!

  3. I absolutely LOVE your smoothies. They taste like something from Jamba Juice. And I am a BIG smoothie fan. Thank you! This will definitely be next one my list!

  4. I too had the most amazing mango smoothie in Mexico and I happen to be pregnant and craving mangoes at the time. Mango salsa, smoothies etc oh my. 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!

  5. These 2 layers sounds delish-not to mention look GORGEOUS! Mangoes are such a wonderful pairing with bananas!!

  6. 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

    1. Thanks Averie! Swirled smoothies are hard to get looking perfect for camera, the layering was much easier to handle!

  7. This drink looks so pretty! I think I’ve found my new breakfast for the next couple of days. Mangos from Mexico are simply the best and there is nothing better than sucking the last little big of mango off the seed. Maybe I’ll pick up some today to help overcome the stormy weather.

  8. Yumm, looks great. I love layered smoothies. I even made a rainbow smoothie for my blog. It’s sooooo colorful and fun! And can’t agree more on smoothie+granola=great power breakfast.

  9. This is so fun! I really like how you mixed up the normal smoothie and made it so pretty! Granola and smoothies are my favorite breakfast, but I’ve never had mango and I’ve never layered it. Pinning and printing so I won’t forget to try this tomorrow!

  10. 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 😀

    1. Mmm pineapple added to the mix would be amazing, Caley! And I love baking and cooking with fruits and veggies; their natural flavors are unparalleled!

  11. Sally, this is literally the best idea you’ve ever had (and you’ve had some really, really good ones :)) I adore smoothies, but still always feel the need to eat something – I need to chew in order to feel full. 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!
