Tropical Sunshine Smoothie
This mango smoothie is is so good. It´s super creamy with a consistency like ice cream and it will only take you 5 minutes to whip up from start to finish.
I love mangoes. They are my favorite natural sweetener and base in my smoothies. I always have a couple of packages with frozen mango chunks in my freezer. They make a creamy, sweet base for all smoothies and a lovely frothy, thick texture. Smoothies are a great place to hide nutritious greens. Add a handful baby spinach (which has a very mild flavor) to this smoothie to get an even more nutritious smoothie. It´s one of my daughters favorite smoothies.
To make this recipe more protein potent and satisfying, try adding chia seeds. Chia seeds are a protein-packed wonder food with complete protein, containing all of the essential amino acids and lots of Omega-3s.
Vary this smoothie by substituting the frozen mango with peaches.
