Mango Banana Smoothie with Rosemary

Ahhhh.... smoothies. Fruit, yogurt, milk, and ice - POW, smoothie. Four weeks ago I ate like a bird. If you brought me a smoothie for breakfast, I would be happy, really happy. Nowadays, I'd be delighted to drink a smoothie for breakfast, as long as its served with bread, cheese, eggs, and fruit - lots of fruit.
If you bring me a smoothie, all by itself, I will cry. Not on the inside, probably out loud. I'm a baby, just ask my husband.

I know what your wondering. Does she have zombie robot ninja baby living inside her? I can't say for sure, but I'm pretty positive that this is not the case.

Four weeks ago, I did the impossible. I joined booty camp. That's right, B-O-O-T-Y camp.

Now my booty looks great - I think. Well, I'm definitely stronger. This is apparent by my new-found ability to do 20 pushups. Rarh.

Boot camp ends this week, but that's ok, because I am going to South America.
Don't worry, not permanently.

I will still write. Specifically about food. And possibly about my whereabouts and shenanigans. If you like?

While I'm away, my posts will probably not include recipes for food, but they will contain recipes - for fun.

Mango Banana Smoothie with Rosemary Recipes (serves 2)

1 cup frozen or fresh mango
1 banana
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
1 spring of rosemary

1. Put all of the ingredients in a blender and puree.

[This is the easiest recipe I have ever written]


  1. This sounds delicious. I have a ripe mango chilling on my counter which needs to be eaten, and a rosemary bush outside. I need a vegan replacement for the yogurt though, maybe soy yogurt, a frozen banana, or silken tofu....

  2. sounds and looks so appetizing and easy to make. I will definitely try if for a breakfast drink. Blendtec

  3. This does sound delicious, but the herb shown is not rosemary. It is thyme.
