Summer in Florida means that all my mango and banana trees are producing more than the family can eat. Or for that matter, more than we can share with the neighborhood! So learning to freeze the fruit from our trees is a necessity and one that we love because it means fresh fruit throughout the year. And this year is no exception! So I hope you’ll join me often to see all of the  delicious fresh fruit recipes that will be coming your way.

I think the first place I ever had a mango was when I was doing some work in the Philippines. Our hosts would serve slices of mango as a treat during the day to keep everyone cool and boost flagging energy. They are still some of the best mangos I’ve ever eaten! So my husband and I planted a mango tree. And I do believe that our Florida mangos are super delicious too and come in a close second to the Philippine variety. Now I’m looking forward to making all my favorites, like Mango Salsa, Mango Upside Down Cake and, of course, Mango Coladas, my husband’s specialty.

Needless to say, you can also use them in smoothies, hence today’s recipe. This Mango Orange Protein Smoothie is full of ripe and delicious Florida fresh fruit as well as peanut butter and protein powder. If you like,  yogurt can be subbed for the protein powder for a change of pace. This smoothie, whether in a glass or bowl, brings a whole lotta healthy to your day. Just look at the impressive breakdown of just how good it is below.
