Strawberry Mango Smoothie

Strawberry Mango Smoothie

My babygirl started her first day of 3rd grade today. I’m not quite sure how to feel about this.

I am super happy that she is back in school because now I can get more work done without constant interruption. But I am sad that she is getting so big and growing so fast.

Is there a pause button somewhere that I can push to make her stop growing for just a year or two? Maybe?

So of course she woke up super early this morning, even before I went in to get her, because she was so excited to start the day and get to school. Are all kids like that for the first few years of school? I really don’t ever remember being happy to go to school. Maybe I was? Oh well, to each his own.

Because she was up so early, I decided to make her this delicious Chobani inspired fruit and protein smoothie to start her day. She loves fruit smoothies just as much as I do and I figured I could do something special for her first day and make it double flavor and double layered.

I usually make fruit and protein smoothies with protein powder but this time I wanted to shake things up a little bit and use Greek yogurt instead. Since Chobani Greek yogurt is so versatile and I usually always have a tub in the fridge, it was the perfect ingredient to add to the smoothie while also giving it the protein punch that I wanted.

This recipe makes two smoothies, so we both sat together and drank them while waiting for the clock to tick down to signal it was time to head to school. She devoured hers in about 0.4 seconds while I savored mine a bit longer. That and I didn’t want to get a brain freeze from drinking too fast.

Don’t let the double layer fool you and think that it takes a ton more time to make than a regular smoothie. I promise you that it does not take more than a couple extra seconds and you will have a gorgeous smoothie just like this for your morning breakfast or afternoon snack.

  1. My kids are definitely not like that! They do like school a lot but they’ve been having trouble waking up for the bus after a relaxing summer. This looks like the perfect pick me up! #client

    1. Yeah, the first day is wide awake then it just goes downhill after that. Later and later each morning… It’s a wonder by the end of the school year that we even arrive on time.

  2. Jennifer this is my type of smoothie to wake up with, great flavours and soooo pretty love it!
    I haven’t worked out a way to hit pause on my Mr 10 or Miss 8 growing up mechanism, I guess we just have to stop and absorb as much as we can when we can 😉
    Have a great weekend ahead! x

    1. Thank you, Dannielle. I just want her to stay little for a while longer – but I guess that can’t happen. Gotta get all the sweet childhood moments out of her that I can.

  3. Such gorgeous colours! I can only imagine how tasty these smoothies are! My kids would love them in the morning!
