Instructions for use
Make sure your mango and pineapple are ripe. This guarantees not only the best taste but also the maximum nutrient content.
#2 Mix the ingredients
In a blender, combine the mango cubes, pineapple chunks and banana slices. Pour in the almond milk and add Greek yogurt for a velvety texture and added protein.
#3 Amp it up
Sprinkle on chia seeds for an extra dose of fiber, protein and omega-3s. If you want a little more sweetness, add honey or agave nectar. Remember, the riper your fruit is, the less added sweetness you'll need.

Start mixing on low speed and gradually increase to high speed until you achieve a smooth and creamy texture. If the mixture is too thick for your liking, add a little more almond milk and mix again.
