Smoothies are a great way to add variety and nutrition to your day. Having one for breakfast can be a great boost, especially if you would normally skip breakfast due to lack of appetite.

This recipe creates a deliciously sweet smoothie with no added sugar. It is low in fat and high in vitamins for a perfect start to the day.

Preparation Time: 2 minutes
Makes: 1 large serve or 2 small serves

Ingredients:
1 mango
1/2 banana
1 tablespoon vanilla protein powder (optional, replace with 1 teaspoon vanilla essence if you prefer)
1 tablespoon honey
1 cup low fat milk of choice

Method:
Cut up mango and banana, taking skin off. For tips on cutting the mango follow How to Cut a Mango Hedgehog and then slice segments off from the skin.

Place cut up mango into a blender or food processor.

Next add banana pieces.

Then honey and protein powder if using. It is best to put the honey and protein powder in after some other ingredients so that it doesn't stick to the bottom of your blender or food processor as once it gets wet it has a tendency to stick, wasting ingredients and meaning you miss out on having it in your smoothie.

Finally add the milk you are using and process the smoothie until of an even consistency.

Now you're ready to start your day knowing you are fueled with protein, Vitamins A, C, E, B6 and potassium in a healthy quick package!

Note: For this recipe I used this protein powder as it has lovely pieces of real vanilla in it for a natural flavour. You can replace with your favourite protein powder.
