Tart pomegranate, sweet mango and creamy banana make for a smoothie that will get you ready for the day.

Pomegranate Mango Smoothie
I need to explain something to you.

I might be straying ever so slightly from my typical carb-laden, sugary, cheesy recipes on occasion over the next few months. This is not because I am suddenly interested in becoming a healthy recipe blogger, nor have I become obsessed with a “new year, new you” mindset.

No, I simply have come to the realization that I am getting married in just over 3 months and can no longer continue carrying on as though eating cheese is an Olympic sport and I am going for the gold. At least, not if I want to fit into my wedding dress.

Although, someone puh-leeease alert me if eating cheese ever does make the Olympics, because I could seriously succeed at that ish.

So maybe you’re looking for a healthy breakfast recipe? I’ll have that for you. A quick and easy weeknight dinner? That’s in the forecast, too. And probably a dessert or two, because I am still me, after all.

But for now? More smoothies.

Yes, another smoothie. Why? Because I love them. They’re quick, easy, require so few ingredients, taste great, and function as either breakfast or snack. Oh, and seriously easy clean-up. Can’t forget that. Getting engaged didn’t make me a perfect future housewife overnight – I still seriously hate to do the dishes.

This one contrasts the wintery flavor of pomegranate with summery mango, which I pick up frozen at Trader Joe’s. The pomegranate feels seasonal while the mango lets me dream of living somewhere – anywhere – warm.

Pick up the ingredients for this smoothie next time you’re at the store. I’ll just be over here sipping mine through a colorful straw and pretending that I am on a beach somewhere instead of in the arctic tundra that is Chicago.

  1. I dunno how I missed this post so royally, but I’m pretty obsessed with it. Pomegranate-mango sounds like an epic combination for a smoothie, so I say bring it on every dayum day!

    You’ll have to compete with me in the cheese eating Olympics, cause this girl can put away some serious milk fat poundage…especially when consumed with wine. My blessings to you on Project Wedding. I’ll be on the same plan once my dress arrives and I realize it’s too small for my waist, bahaha! I laugh now, but I’ll be drinking smoothies from that point until April 18. P.S. Can we brunch on cheese on April 19?

    La-la-love the smoothie, m’dear…well played, indeed 🙂

    1. We are all going to brunch on the 19th, only SOMEONE has an early flight, so won’t be able to make it to brunch, of which Jerry and I are very sad about. The beagles are, too. 🙁
