Buzymum - Victoria's Sneaky Mango & Banana Smoothie

My son is reluctant to eat most vegetables unless they’re hiding somewhere in his favorite food! Like all little guys in the world, he loves ice cream, smoothies, and yogurt, along with pizza, breadsticks, hamburgers, Mac n cheese… and a bunch of other, not so healthy, fast food. To get around this, I need to be ultra sneaky! So, to keep his system healthy, I give him something that he loves but that I feel comfort about, his special version of a fruit smoothie.

This smoothie is perfect for hiding that all-important veg, with a few macadamia nuts which are great for his immune system and brain health too. Turmeric is a natural way to ease his stomach and also helps disguise the green broccoli (anything green is a no-no with him!). The recipe is for a single (large) portion but can easily be increased to serve more:

Ingredients:

  • ½ mango (if you use frozen, you can omit the shaved ice!)
  • ½ banana
  • 1 Tbsp sweet condensed milk
  • 2 pieces broccoli
  • 1 baby carrot
  • 2 Tbsp freshly squeeze orange juice
  • ¼ tsp turmeric powder
  • A couple macadamia nuts
  • Some shaved ice

Method:

  • With your blender, pulse and blend all the fruits and juice until perfectly smooth *.
  • Add shaved ice and blend for a minute or two more.
  • Pour into serving cup and top with a slice of banana!
  • Enjoy your Sneaky Mango & Banana Smoothie!
