Tropical Freeze

You can find frozen mango pieces in your supermarket, or you can make your own using fresh mangoes. To freeze bananas, peel, break into chunks, and place loosely in a covered container in the freezer.

1 orange, peeled
1 cup frozen banana chunks
1 cup frozen mango chunks
1/2 - 1 cup fortified soy- or rice milk

Cut orange in half and remove any seeds. Place in a blender with banana, mango, and non-dairy milk. Blend until thick and very smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve immediately.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
