Mango Strawberry Smoothie

Holy Delicious! This smoothie has been a long time favorite! It is so simple to throw together in the morning and it never disappoints.
I start by gathering my ingredients: Water, Orange Juice, Almond slices, frozen strawberries, frozen mangoes and my nutribullet.
I add about 1/2 cup of frozen mangoes and 1/4 of frozen strawberries to my blender container. You could easily replace the mangoes and strawberries with any other frozen fruits you like.
I sprinkle a handful of sliced almonds on top of my frozen fruit. I do this for a little extra calcium and protein but you could easily leave out the almonds or use another nut.

Once all of my solid ingredients are added, I fill the container halfway with orange juice and the rest of the way with water. I half the orange juice with water to reduce sugar, but you could use all orange juice or all water depending on your preferences. I have also replaced the orange juice with just about every kind of juice in the past. So, if you don't have or don't like orange juice you can use whatever kind of juice you have on hand.
Once all my ingredients are in the container, I blend them with the Nutribullet for about 3 minutes. If there are any left over chunks, I blend it a little longer.
I'm drinking one of these as I write and it is fruity, summery perfection!
