My green mango smoothie recipe gets its green color from the addition of spinach. Now before you write this off and go searching for another recipe, I’d like to present a couple arguments in favor of adding greens to your smoothie:
1. Green leafy vegetables are literally the healthiest foods on earth.
2. They don’t alter the taste if you combine them with fruits in the right ratios.
This mango smoothie recipe is a healthy and refreshing way to start your day. It has just 152 calories. And, you get 5.5 grams of fiber, which can help keep your digestive system running smoothly.
Another benefit: it only takes a couple minutes to make. Grab a bag of frozen mango chunks, a banana, and some greens and you’re pretty much good to go. I added a bit of Truvia, a plant-based sweetener. You can opt for Splenda, honey, or agave syrup if you so desire.
Here’s the mango smoothie recipe. Let me know what you think!
