Mango Pineapple Pudding with Crunchy Topping

This morning I was wondering what to make for breakfast. I had some overripe mangos and half a pineapple so I decided to use them up.

I chopped up one mango and half a pineapple and put them into the blender on high speed for about half a minute. I poured the mixture into 2 bowls. The consistency was like a thick shake. Then I added some grapes and some crunchy topping I made the other day. It tasted delicious. Instead of my crunchy topping you could use any type of granola or crushed nuts or dried coconut. Takes only a couple of minutes to whip up this healthy breakfast.
