This smoothie recipe happens to be my daughter’s favourite because she LOVES mangoes. So do I!
I always pack some protein and healthy fat into our smoothies to turn them into a quick breakfast (or very filling mid-day snack). Leafy greens are also a MUST because smoothies are such an easy way to get some extra green goodness without the cumbersome task of chewing 😉. If you’ve gotta rush out the door they can also be transferred to a to-go cup, and many blenders actually come with a lid for the cup attachment to save time (and dishes!).
Green Mango Breakfast Smoothie (serves 2)
1 cup mango chunks (frozen or fresh)
1 very ripe banana
2-3 large handfuls of spinach
5 tbsp hemp seeds
2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
1/4 lime (optional)
- Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend. Easy peasy!
Tip: If you don’t have a high-power blender, grind the seeds into a powder in a coffee grinder first.
