Banana, Mango & Protein Smoothie

Banana, Mango & Protein Smoothie [Serves 1]

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 ripe mango
  • 1 small ripe banana, sliced
  • 150 ml (5 fl oz) semi-skimmed milk
  • 120 ml (4 fl oz) orange juice
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 2 heaped tbsp. vanilla frozen yogurt
  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder

Method:

  1. Peel the skin from the mango and cut out the stone. Chop into rough pieces. Put into a blender with the banana.
  2. Add the milk, orange juice, lime juice, sugar, frozen yogurt and protein powder and blend on maximum speed for about 30 seconds or until mixed and frothy.
  3. Pour banana and mango shake into glasses and serve immediately.

Extra Notes: Those who do not eat dairy products or who have a lactose (milk sugar) intolerance can substitute 300 ml (10 fl oz) soya milk for the cow’s milk, and omit the frozen yogurt; or use 240 ml (8 fl. oz) soya milk with 2 heaped tbsp. soya ice cream. Also, use a ripe peach instead of the mango half.
