Banana Mango Tangerine Smoothie

Hello lovelies! It has been a good long while, but I have decided it is time for a blog post. Today's blog post is all about SMOOTHIES! I love love love smoothies to death. Also, they are fun to make because you can do so many different mixes.

For this smoothie I made for dinner this evening I added one whole banana, a handful of mango chunks, 1 tbsp of black chia seeds, and filled up the rest of the blender with vanilla almond milk. I have been feeling a tad bit under the weather, so last minute I decided to throw in a tiny tangerine to give me a vitamin C boost. Sorry it is not pictured, but you get the just of it ;)

To the left here I provided a pre-mixing picture. I first add in the chia seeds at the very bottom so that way they can get mixed easily throughout the entire smoothie. Then I put a handful of my frozen mango chunks in the cup. Next came the whole banana that I just broke up using my hands. I then peeled my tangerine and broke it apart so it would blend easier before throwing it in there. Last but not least, I added my almond milk and filled up to the top of the ingredients. My Hamilton Beach small personal blender makes this so easy to make! I bought this when I first moved to college and I love it because its simple and quick. It also does not take up much space which is a major plus when you share an apartment with a couple other people.

Ta-da! The final product is a pretty orange color and also very delicious! Please share any of your smoothie recipes/combinations in the comments section. I would love to try combinations that I have never thought of myself.
