Post morning workout mango and banana smoothie

Here’s a recipe for a delicious and very easy to make mango and banana smoothie thats a perfect pick me up after a morning workout.  You’ll need a blender, a handful of ice cubes, a ripe banana, and a handful of frozen mango cubes.  Alternatively you can use a fresh mango but since they are so messy I find it easier to use precut, frozen squares.  There are many different company’s that sell them and you can find them in the freezer section of most grocery stores.  I use organic diced mangoes by Woodstock (http://www.woodstock-foods.com/pages/productdetail.aspx?p=4256300763).  Throw all the ingredients in your blender, blend and enjoy!  

If you’re counting calories here’s a rough estimate:

Handful of mangoes: 80

1 banana: 100

1/2 cup apple juice: 60

Ice: 0

Total: ~240 calories
