Health & Fitness | Morning Go Green Smoothie

Now I know what you’re thinking…another blogger on the green smoothie kick and yes you are right, but please per usual hear me out! This green smoothie doesn’t taste yucky even with just a touch of fruit and I’m here to share my personal recipe. There’s nothing like starting your morning out with some cucumber, baby spinach and mango so here is how to make all of those ingredients work.

First, you want to put two handfuls of baby spinach and pack it down in that blender. It sounds like a lot of green, but trust me it will be worth it. Spinach is packed full of nutrients such as vitamins A and E, protein, fiber, zinc, thiamin, calcium, and iron. So go ahead and get your Popeye on!

Second, get some organic frozen mangoes when possible and just add about a cup. That should do. Mangoes are not only naturally sweet they also have a punch of nutrients like vitamins A, B6, E, and K. They also have potassium, iron, copper and so much more!

Third, you want to finish by chopping up half of a cucumber and adding a cup of milk or liquid of choice. For this recipe, I used vanilla almond milk. This was the final result:
