Green Smoothie With Mango
Mangos make the perfect base for a green smoothie! They possess a delicate, mild flavor that will not compete with other fruits in your green smoothie. Additionally, they can be used with mildly flavored fruits, like strawberries, or with tangy, citrus fruits, like grapefruit. Furthermore, mangos offer a whole host of nutritional benefits.
When you include a mango in your green smoothie, you will be providing your body with an excellent source of dietary fiber, as well as Vitamins A, B6, C, E, and K. Mangos also contain potassium, copper, 17 essential amino acids, and healthy Omega 6 fatty acids. Each of these vitamins and nutrients is beneficial to your body in a number of different ways. Why would you not want to add a mango to your next green smoothie?
- 1 mango
- 1 cup whole strawberries
- 2 cups fresh baby spinach (or other leafy green)
- 1/2 – 1 cup of purified water
Each of these ingredients should be added to your blender one at a time and blended together thoroughly. If you would like for your green smoothie to be slightly sweeter, then you can add a small amount of a natural sweetener, such as stevia, to taste.
