Mango and Banana Smoothie

A quick and tasty breakfast drink. It's extremely healthy as it only contains fruit and it's full of all the vitamins and nutrients you need - an easy way to five-a-day. Serves 2.

Update: Obviously you can make smoothies with practically any fruit, but mango, papaya and banana with a squeeze of lime is a very tasty combination!


One large ripe mango
One large ripe banana
One large orange


  1. Peel the mango and remove the stone. This is difficult with a very ripe mango, which is what you need for a smoothie with the extra sweetness: the skin will come off easily - scrape any flesh off it with a spoon - but the easiest way to remove the stone from a very ripe mango is just to scrape the flesh off it, preferably over a bowl or jug to catch the juice. Put the mango in a blender.
  2. Roughly chop the banana and add to the mango. Blend until smooth.
  3. Squeeze the orange into the blender, allowing some of the pulp to fall in too (but remove any seeds).
  4. Blend once more to incorporate the orange, then serve in two tall glasses.
