Mango Green Smoothie

Will keep you full for hours, and is a great recovery smoothie because it has potassium from the banana. Feel free to add some greek yogurt for more protein or if you are not worried about keeping it vegan!

Ingredients

1 cup frozen mango chunks

1 banana, sliced

2 cups baby spinach leaves or 1 cup frozen

1/2 cup chia gel (chia seeds soaked in water or coconut water for a couple hours in a glass jar, lasts for a week and adds awesome protein to your smoothies)

1 tsp cinnamon

Directions

Blend and love!
