This easy mango smoothie has five ingredients and only takes five minutes to put together! Mangos, greek yogurt, lemon juice, vanilla, and sugar. Yum!
This time last week, I was sick, sick, sick. Y.U.C.K. I was struck down by the stomach flu and it was miserable. The only thing worse than being sick, however, is when your significant other is ALSO sick (yep, Trevor also had the flu) AND it’s warm outside and you want to do everything other then lay in bed.
My cure? This easy mango smoothie!
I don’t crave many things when I’m sick, but when I do have an appetite, I always revert back to my childhood favorites: spaghettios, honey wheat pretzels, and Haagen Dazs Mango Sorbet.
I didn’t have Haagen Dazs and I had absolutely zero energy to walk to the store. I did, however, have a bag of frozen mangos in my freezer and my trusty Vitamix, so I thought I’d give a homemade version a try.
I had every intention of making sorbet, but ended up with something so much better…this easy mango smoothie!
Because you don’t want to hear all about the glorious wonders of Trevor and I getting the stomach flu, I’m going to keep todays post short and sweet…just like its ingredient list.
This smoothie has:
1. Mangos: to make this smoothie healthy, earthy, and fruity.
2. Non fat plain greek yogurt: to make this ultra creamy.
3. Vanilla: to round out the flavors.
4. Lemon juice: to add just a slight tang.
5. Sugar: hey! I didn’t say this was the healthiest smoothie out there. 😉 It IS however extremely tasty.
This easy mango smoothie has 5 ingredients and will only take you 5 minutes to whip up from start to finish. See what I did there? 5 ingredients? 5 minutes? Yes please!
Dump your ingredients into your high powdered blender (I used a Vitamix), let it do it’s thaaang, and less than 5 minutes later, you’ll have the creamiest, most luxurious, deliciously fruity mango smoothie!
It will also take you 5 minutes from start to finish to completely suck down this smoothie. 😉
This easy mango smoothie was the perfect, refreshing treat to get Trevor and I back up on our feet! Although, I think we will be enjoying these quite a bit more when we’re actually healthy this summer!
What are your favorite foods to make you feel better? Show me the yummy!

**This smoothie is THICK and that's just how I like them. If you don't have a really powerful blender, you may need to add some sort of liquid for even blending. Maybe milk? Or even orange juice? I can't vouch for those results, so let me know if something works for you!
