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!

The All Fruit Smoothie

Just the power of fruit and this smoothie will have you at your fruit limit for the day. If this one gets to thick, a couple tablespoons of water should do the trick.

Ingredients

3 rings pineapple, I use canned but I am trying to limit the food I buy in cans, so fresh would be ideal here

1 cup frozen or fresh berries

3 tablespoons water

1 banana, sliced

1 clementine, skin removed, sliced into small pieces

Directions

Blend and enjoy! Top with chia seeds for some added wow.

Berry Blast Muscle Recovery Pops

As you all can see, I am on a pop phase. Making your own eliminates a ton of ingredients that you would normally have in premade pops. These are delicious, creamy, and great for after a workout especially.

1 cup berries, frozen (I used raspberries and strawberries)

2 tablespoons coconut water

1 cup soy milk, unsweetened or vanilla

1 banana, frozen

1 cup spinach

Directions

Blend and pour into popsicle molds.  Freeze 3 hours.

Banana Ginger Mango Smoothie

Bananas are portable, delicious, and give you an incredible energy boost. I try to eat one everyday. Bananas contain

  • good source of probiotics
  • good source of potassium, which is so good for your cardiovascular system
  • good source of B6, prevents sleeplessness and is also a good source of electrolytes, supplying your body with energy
  • good source of pectin, which keeps your body regular and aids digestion

This smoothie incorporates some of my favorite ingredients for a great breakfast, lunch or after workout snack.

Ingredients

  • 1 banana, diced
  • 1 inch piece of ginger, diced
  • 1 cup frozen or fresh mango, diced
  • 1 cup almond milk, light coconut milk, or milk of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 tablespoon raw almond butter

Directions

Blend and serve! Add ice if you want it to be cold and crisp!
