Here’s a green smoothie full of green goodness that no one can deny! Avocado, spinach and kale…oh my! Put all three of these green powerhouse ingredients together and you’ve got an anti-oxidant, protein, fiber, vitamin rich power smoothie.  Regarding the taste, one of my kids’ first responses after trying this concoction was, “Mama, that’s a really smooth smoothie!”

Mango Avocado Green Smoothie

The Tropical Power Combo

The avocado and mango duo is great for your body on so many levels.  It’s great for bone health, eyes, healthy fat, nerve function and much more.  These tropical fruits don’t have to be a pain to enjoy.  The beauty of avocado is it’s easy to cut open, seed and scoop out, mango is another story.  If you’ve ever tried enjoying a fresh mango you know it’s a big pain to slice up.  The great thing for smoothies is that most stores now carry frozen mango chunks at very reasonable prices, so the hard part’s been taken care of for you.  I personally love the organic mango chunks at Costco.

I recently also started freezing avocado for smoothies.  If you know you’re losing time on the ripeness of the avocado, (we all know they have a very short perfectly ripened period) seed and skin it and freeze it in halves in a freezer bag.  It’s the best way to save those precious avocados without them over ripening and getting tossed out.

Comments

  • To add to the previous comment, besides Golden Flax, also added a TB of Chia seeds for good fiber. It did not change the texture or taste because our Vitamix did a great job of chopping and blending the smoothie, as usual. A fine way to start the day!

  • We just made this smoothie with fresh pineapple only because we were out of bananas. It was the most delicious smoothie I’ve ever had, actually. It could easily pass for a dessert for a dinner it felt like such a treat. I didn’t expect it to be so creamy…I’d have it again in a second. Yum.
