Alton Brown once said, “Always have a purple breakfast” and it was something we took to heart. He didn’t mean adding a ton of food coloring to your pancakes, rather, he meant having berries for breakfast. So we started making smoothies. They’re delicious, easy to whip up ahead of time, and something you can completely vary based on your fruit choices. This time, I went with a mango banana berry detox smoothie.
Let’s talk quick about detoxwater. We were sent three varieties to try: original (lychee and white grape), pinamint (pineapple and mint) and mangaloe (mango). Since we usually add mangos to our breakfast smoothies, I went with mangaloe.
If you need a way to use the rest of the bananas in the bunch (since this recipe only needs one banana), try something off our Budget-Friendly Banana Recipes list.
