YUMMY MONDAYS: Pineapple-Papaya-Mango Smoothie

This recipe serves: 1
Preparation time : 5 minutes

1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup peeled, cored and cubed pineapple
1/4 cup peeled, seeded and chopped ripe papaya

1/4 cup peeled, cubed mango
honey to taste
1/2 cup ice

Cooking Instructions
1. Place the juice, fruit and honey in a blender. Blend on high speed for 30 seconds. Add the ice and blend until smooth.

I like to add some personal touches to this recipe that my husband doesn't always fancy... for example, I like to use splenda instead of honey. But then I am a girl made out of splenda! Also being my life is busy busy, I find myself using frozen mango and papaya and throwing in a half scoop of some Beachbody vanilla protein powder. Doing these things will shift the calorie intake just a bit but not that extreme just gives you a bit more protein to keep you fuller longer, perfect for that life on the go!!! Did I mention how, oh so fab this smoothie is for those hot spring and summertime days!!??

Reminder: If you do decide to use the frozen fruit, you will not need to add any ice for it will be frothy enough from the frozen fruit. Enjoy!

Hi Chalene,
I think you are super cool!!!
I just received my Turbo jam and
tried it yesterday. I totally love
it. Rather than eating crap when I get frustrated about having put on weight, yet again, I can work my
frustrations with myself out doing turbo jam.
I do have a question though, I am
not being able to hook with the online support for whatever reason, the site keeps rejecting me, even I have purchased several of the turbo jams dvd's and products.
How do I get registered on the site
so I can receive online support?
My current question is , I have gotten the activit vitamins and herbs which I started taking yesterday. However before I start to take the slimming formula, there
is one indgredient which concerns me, ie sodium, because since I hit "mental"pause lol, (I am fifty four) I do tend to, very badly, if I do not drink lots of, and do exercise, retain water. Therefore I was wondering about consumming such a large amount of sodium. Or is this in a different form which does not have the same effect? Everything else in it sounds great, but I really would appreciate some feedback from you before I take it. Ps , other than being overweight, I do not have any health issues, and have no problem doing strenuous excercise when I am behaving myself. Turbo jam has gotten my back on the proper nutrition wagon. Looking forward to hearing from you, love all these awesome tips you have posted here, I especially would like to get the dmrs. Have a wonderful day. Thanks so much, Barb in Canada.

Chalene, I am 28 and I have lost over 80lbs. using Turbo Jam and I LOVE IT! I own every single workout from Turbo Jam and I'm well on my way to having them all memorized! I was a cheerleader and dancer so it all comes natural for me. I really hope you make some more videos since there are no Turbo Jam instructors here in Austin, Tx!!! Maybe I should become one!! Anyway, I love you and Thank you...for saving my life.

Chalene, I just love you sooo much! You are such an inspiration to me! I have been doing TurboJam for 1 month now. I love all of your tips, and recipes, that I have yet to try. Just received my ThinKitchen in the mail. I want to thank you, and say GOD BLESS YOU my dear. I have lost 5 lbs. already, 1 1/2 inches each, in my chest, hips, thighs, and arms! You have changed my life! I have so much energy now. I have quit taking my pain medicine, only taking my muscle relaxers when, I go to bed, but not taking them every night either. Before I started TurboJam, I was taking anywhere from 4-5 Darvocet a day. I broke my back in 1989, and then had major back surgery, where they put a plate & screws in my low back. Since I have started TurboJam, I believe I have only taken a total of 4 Darvocets! This is truly remarkable! PRAISE GOD I found you & TurboJam, and the TurboJam team. I have to do the low impact modifications, because of the shape my back is in. You are truly amazing. I thank GOD for you everyday, and PRAISE THE LORD, I can do this workout with you!
Thank you Chalene! GOD BLESS you and yours! GOD BLESS the TurboTeam!
Love always,
