Tips on Making Banana Mango Smoothie:
- You can freeze this smoothie and make it into a banana mango sorbet.
- Prior to freezing them, slice the mangos and peel the bananas ahead of time; it saves you a lot of time.
- Don’t forget to keep your bananas in the freezer if you plan to use them at a later time. They tend to change color because of the reaction they have when exposed to air. Keeping them in an airtight container and freezing them prevents that from happening.
- When blending, make sure to place the hardest ingredient near the blade. If you will use some ice cubes, they are usually the hardest to liquefy, so put them in at the bottom, where the blade is.
- The bananas also serve as a cooling ingredient for the smoothie, so it is so much better if you use them frozen.
- Serve the smoothie immediately, as the color can turn brownish if left at room temperature.
- You can freeze the Banana Mango Smoothie after blending and blend again when you are ready to serve.
