Tangy Mango-Orange Juice Smoothie

A quick smoothie I whipped up a few days ago that I'd like to share. One of my favorites! A nice sweet but tangy taste and only 2 ingredients. Hope you all enjoy!

Recipe - 2 to 3 Servings
Juice of 3 Oranges (I used Organic Navel Oranges from Trader Joes)
8-12 oz of Frozen Mango Chunks
Add water for a smoother consistency (optional)

Juice 3 oranges and toss into blender along with the frozen mango chunks. Blend until smooth and add water if needed. More smoothies to come soon, enjoy!

Super Sweet Banana-Strawberry-Apple Juice Smoothie

It's finally spring time and although the weather hasn't been fabulous here in New York yet, I decided to whip up a new recipe for a super sweet refreshing smoothie to prepare me for the hot days to come. I haven't been posting many blogs lately and I apologize for that but I promise I'll be posting lots more soon, things have been a little busy lately. So lots of new recipes coming soon for tasty vegan treats and whatnot. This one I'm about to post just sounded good to me in my head so I took 3 simple ingredients and made an awesome smoothie with it. Hope you enjoy!

Recipe - Serves 2 to 3 people
Juice of 4 apples (I used Organic Pink Lady Apples from Trader Joes)
3 Small Organic Bananas
About a handful or two of Organic Frozen Strawberries

And that's it! No water, no ice, & no sweeteners. Just juice the apples and add the juice along with the rest of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. It tastes so good and amazingly sweet without any added sugars. Below is a pic I took of the rest of the smoothie in my blender, I almost forgot to take a picture and remembered last second.
