Mango Banana Smoothie

Happy Monday!!!  Welcome to “On the Lighter Side” at The Slow Roasted Italian, where every Monday I will be bringing you dishes from the lighter side.  Dishes that will help you get back to your week and recuperate from your weekend.  If you are eating healthy or enjoy healthy dishes, you will want to be here every Monday to see the weekly “On the Lighter Side” spotlight.

Keep checking back, some exciting things are happening at The Slow Roasted Italian.  I have been in recipe development all week working on some new dishes that I will be sharing with you in the coming weeks.

"On the Lighter Side" this week, I bring you a simple smoothie made with mango, banana and yogurt.  It is thick, refreshing, flavorful and a great source of protein at 14 grams per serving (that’s more than 2 eggs!).

Looking for more light dishes?  Check out "On the Lighter Side" in the category section in the right  side bar.

Mango Banana Smoothie
1 medium banana, peeled
1 cup mango chunks, frozen
1 cup non-fat plain yogurt
1 tablespoon honey

Place banana, mango, yogurt and honey in blender.  


Blend until smooth, pour into your favorite glass and serve immediately.

  14. I made your smoothie for my SRC assignment this month. You made my life this month really difficult ;-) - there were just way too many great recipes on your blog, I had a long long list and simply could not choose one. So on the last day before the reveal I made the simplest one :-). The smoothie was really delicious, we had it with brunch yesterday and did not feel like we needed a dessert - it's so sweet and filling, and refreshing at the same time. Thank you for the great recipe and I will be back here for more recipes, when I'm under less pressure to choose only one :-)

  15. What a delightful smoothie recipe! Question -- do you really need the honey? I'd imagine it would be sweet enough (from all that yummy banana) without.
