This is a refreshing breakfast drink. A light desert. There are many different things you can do with this basic recipe. Different spices, ice cubes for a slushier drink, ice cream, vanilla yogurt. The possibilities are endless.
I had some frozen mangos and bananas and was needing something tropical and came up with this. You can use fresh fruit if you like. I found out that if you use the frozen and let the fruit thaw out a little, it makes a thicker colder drink. Posted August 17th 2005.
This smoothie makes 4 servings and is perfect for overnight guests or family during the holidays. It's bright orange, banana and pineapple colors make for a cheerful presentation in tall stemmed glasses or parfaits. The juices must be frozen the night before so that is listed as cook time.
Printed this recipe from Better Homes & Gardens site,and it is so good! I chop up any unused banana or ones that are getting too ripe and toss them in the freezer so i have them on hand when i want one of these.Buy a frozen triple berry mix and you are all set! You can use regular orange juice or i have even tried using the Tropicana blends(such as the tropical blend,Peach&Mango etc....) I whip them up for a healthy addition to my little ones breakfasts or snack and they love them! Have also served to brunch/breakfast guests and they have been very well received.
A good breakfast alternative for people who don't have much time or appetite in the morning. The milk powder is optional, but it does add some extra calcium and protein, and really doesn't damage the taste.
