Mango-Pineapple Smoothie

My oldest son wanted to make a mango-pineapple smoothie like one that he had tried at McDonald’s.  By using real fruits and yogurt instead of the processed sugary mixes you can control the amount of sugar and ensure that your family is getting all of the vitamins and nutrients from the ingredients.  You can use fresh or frozen fruit, depending on what is in season.  We used mangoes that happened to be on sale and frozen pineapple.  Vanilla yogurt adds a little more sweetness to the smoothie but Greek yogurt is another favorite in all of our smoothies.

The recipe found below is just a basic guideline.  My son really wanted a yellow smoothie so we made it several times with only yellow fruits.  Needless to say, when we made it with the addition of strawberries it was also tasty and the pretty pink-orange hue of a sunset.  That’s what I love about smoothies — you don’t need to follow a recipe and you can add whatever fruit you have.
