 Strawberry Mango Smoothie Recipe

Nothing says summer more than a colorful, delicious smoothie. In our house, smoothie recipes are a summer staple. It’s one of the easiest ways to load up on antioxidants, fiber, and protein while allowing the whole family to get in on the fun. Fruit smoothies also make the perfect on-the-go meal or snack option for everyone from baby to mom and dad.

We typically use a combination of summer fruits, vegetables, unsweetened milk, or yogurt to whip up the smoothie of the day.  I let my 3-year-old pick out the fruit and vegetable combinations he wants to try out, then we toss them in the blender, whip it up, and try it out. This strategy has been a really fun way to get him to try out some new foods he wouldn’t have tasted otherwise. I’m happy because he’s enjoying a meal packed full of nutrients, the baby is happy because he gets to try the new combination of a spoon, and my 3-year-old is happy because he thinks he’s drinking dessert by the straw. It’s a win-win for us all.

Today’s fruit smoothie was extra fun to make because it was a layered smoothie recipe! Seeing the different colors layers on top of each other is one of Joey’s favorite things. He wants to try to create a rainbow smoothie next time using ALL of the colors, which is a little more effort than I wish to try LOL, but for now, he’s very excited about this Strawberry Banana Layered Smoothie Recipe.
