Mango banana date pineapple smoothie

It's mango season, we've got dates all year round, pineapple and cucumber every other day so, why not make a smoothie. The inspiration for this smoothie came about while standing in line outside the banking hall waiting for my turn to use the ATM. The April sun was scorching hot and i had about 15 people in front of me.
Just when i was about leaving the line due to the slow ATM, a young guy walked out of the bank with a chilled bottle of smoothie shaking the bottle vigorously as he passed by. When he came close, i curiously asked him what it was thinking it was kunu and he told me it was a smoothie. Like WOW! Smoothies are now packaged in naija...hmmm!! i liked that. Into the bank i went to get my own bottle of smoothie packed in a 50cl bottle and sold for about 250 bucks. The next day, i decided to make my own version although i had to customize mine to have a sweet base with a fruity appeal...just the way i like it ;).
