Mango-Strawberry Smoothie | Breakfast Smoothie (Sugarless) & Saturday Snapshots !!

Breakfast smoothies are really fast and quick options that you can try on busy days.You just got to have a few chopped fruits ready at hand and blend.Voila! your smoothie is ready.This is best for people who skip their breakfast.We generally don't skip breakfast but a glass of smoothie with breakfast also is filling.I have a few other healthy suggestion that I frequently try out- avocado milk shake,strawberry-banana-oats smoothie and they really taste delicious and filling too.Strawberries are powerful anti oxidants and have anti inflammatory properties too.Mangoes are a rich source of vitamin A,vitamin B6,vitamin C and vitamin E.They are also a good source of potassium.The best part of this smoothie is that everyone loved it,which rarely happens at home.There may be small chunks of mangoes left over after blending which is okay to bite.I had a few small pieces in mine too and my elder son's response at this feature was some of the mango pieces survived the crush of the blades in the blender,ha ha..I couldn't click step by step pics as mornings are always busy.This is a very tasty and rich smoothie that you can try in this mango season and enjoy!!




Preparation time~15 minutes
Serves~3 cups

Ingredients
strawberry 5-6 large
mango 1 large
milk 1 cup
yogurt 1/2 cup

This month the theme for Saturday Snapshots was to click smoothies and juices and here is mine.Hope you liked the pouring shot !!


Method
  • Wash,peel and chop the mangoes in small pieces.Add in the blender.
  • Add the strawberries too.Blend until smooth with the addition of half cup milk.
  • Now,gradually add yogurt and remaining milk.Pour in glasses and refrigerate for one hour,if you love it chilled(I used frozen strawberries and refrigerated fresh mango,so skipped refrigerating the smoothie).
  • Enjoy the delicious smoothie to start the day !!



NOTES
* The smoothie was sweet enough for all of us and so I haven't added any sugar in it.
* Choose ripe sweet mangoes to make this smoothie,else you will end up adding sugar or honey.
