- 1 cup peeled and cubed ripe mango
- 3/4 cup sliced ripe banana
- 2/3 cup plain non-dairy milk
- 1 tablespoon dry soy milk powder
- 1 teaspoon agave nectar
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2. Transfer the frozen mango to a blender, along with all the remaining ingredients. Process until smooth.
The smoothie alone makes an excellent breakfast if you're a light eater in the morning. For a heartier start to the day, try serving with a vegan muffin from Everyday Gourmet vegan bakery. I adore their berries-and-creme flavor.

So naturally sweet from the ripe mango, you'll never believe there's only one teaspoon of agave in here. In fact, I want to go back and dub this a Banana Pudding Smoothie, because it was like drinking a rich and creamy dessert - delicious! It's the perfect texture (not too thick, not too thin) and quite filling. This drink will definitely jump start your day.
Have fun playing around with this basic recipe, by varying the fruit. I had a bag of frozen mixed berries, so I used that in place of the mango, keeping the rest of the recipe the same.
Although I preferred the mango version, this one came together even faster, and was just as thick and fruity.
