School is back in full swing…already! No matter what age your kids are (mine are 13, 15 and 17), school mornings can be hectic. I needed a healthy back-to-school breakfast recipe, so I came up with this Pineapple Mango Smoothie recipe. This recipe starts with frozen fruits from Dole which make this smoothie recipe quick and simple (no chopping, no washing, and there is also no need to use ice). It has vitamins and minerals as well as protein which will help keep your kids fuller longer throughout the morning. Frozen fruits are picked at their peak of freshness, from the moment they are harvested so they are just as healthy as fresh. They are a great value and portioned which makes them great for snacking and quick recipes (and less waste). Feel free to add your favorite frozen fruits to make something new for breakfast, an afternoon snack or dessert. For more recipes using frozen foods, fruits and vegetables see Easy Home Meals.
