A tropical and delicious smoothie with loads of vitamins and nutrients from spinach, mango, a fresh orange and peach, coconut greek yogurt, flaxseed meal and ginger.
Yay for Friday! Did this week zoom by for your guys or did it seem extra long?
With all the busy summer activities going on, I like to start my mornings off with a green smoothie to give me the boost of energy I need to keep me going throughout the day.
This smoothie recipe is packed with tropical flavors and some hidden greens without looking like you’re trying to hide any.
I have no problem with drinking monster green smoothies, but if you’re like my husband or know someone else that is on team #wontdrinkanythinggreen then this is another smoothie recipe for you
Just like my other green smoothie I shared last week, this one has no added sugar but feel free to add honey, maple syrup or agave nectar if you’d like.
It is packed with frozen mango chunks, fresh orange and peach slices, ginger root, flaxseed meal, ground cinnamon and coconut greek yogurt. If you’re not a fan of coconut, feel free to use plain or vanilla yogurt instead.
For the greens, I used baby spinach in here again for its mild flavor.
It’s so easy to get a powerful dose of vitamins and minerals wrapped up in this yummy tropical package.
Just toss everything into your blender and you’ll have the perfect healthy breakfast or afternoon pick-me-up.

* If you don't mind the green color, feel free to add more spinach or kale into your smoothie. When I'm making the smoothie just for myself and not my husband who isn't a fan of the green color, I usually add at least a cup or more of baby spinach.
