Tropical fever hit our house this week because warm weather came in a few days in a row.
However, when the chilly spring air returned today, I would not be deterred.
I put up the heat, slipped into flip flops, and proceeded to make these mango marmalade smoothies! My husband was giving me side-eye like crazy, haha!
An orange fruit smoothie, a combo of three flavors (can you guess them?), and topped with a muesli. Together it tasted like an explosion of tropical fruitiness and crunch, and made me feel like it was truly vacation time!
The muesli, actually Bob’s Red Mill’s tropical muesli flavor, was icing on the top! Well, not really, but it is a terrific mix of fruit and crunch. And healthy!
Rolled oats – which are in abundance in this muesli – in general are terrifically nutritious, with healthy soluble fiber, antioxidants, loads of vitamins and minerals including B1 and B5, as well as potassium and calcium.
And this particular muesli flavor is perfect for my mango marmalade smoothie since it is full of tropical fruits such as coconut flakes, nuts including almonds, and seeds including pumpkin seeds.
the whole orange jar was such a flavorful party in the mouth!
And topped with a citrus-y coconut yogurt, and a spritz of lime! Such a vacation for breakfast!I really really think this smoothie is among my favorite top five flavors!
And I am a firm believer that if you love your morning smoothie, you will have a great day! Quote by me.
Let’s move on to this recipe!
Mango Marmalade Smoothie with Tropical Muesli
- 1 cup chopped mango
- 1/4 cup sliced carrots
- 1/4 cup pinapple
- 1 cup plant yogurt (I used coconut)
- 3 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp baobab powder A superfood that boosts vitamin C levels
- 1 canister of Bob's Red Mill's Tropical Muesli
- 3 tbsp coconut flakes
- 3 tbsp chopped raspberries
- 2 tbsp chopped pineapple
Make the Marmalade Smoothie
Blend up the mango, carrots and pineapple until mixed but lumpy. Add some water but not enough to make it pourable; you want it spoonable. Stir in lemon juice.
Make the Citrus Yogurt
- Blend up yogurt, lemon juice, and baobab.
Make the Museli
Open the canister, peel off the top and (optional) stir in the extra ingredients.
- You can choose to top your smoothie with the muesli dry or you can prepare it as cold oatmeal or even overnight oatmeal (if you prepare it the night before) by following package instructions.
Build the Mango Marmalade
- Spoon the smoothie into a jar, top with a layer of citrus yogurt and then the tropical muesli! Enjoy chilled!
