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!

Greek Yogurt Raspberry Smoothie

I love raspberries and a good smoothie. This is a great smoothie for the morning or after a workout. I have switched from flavored Greek yogurts to just plain and adding my own toppings to it or incorporating my own sweeteners because some yogurts are pumped with the sweet stuff. I add chia seeds for extra protein and fiber.

Ingredients

1 cup frozen or fresh raspberries

1/2 banana

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1 cup spinach

1 container plain greek nonfat yogurt

1 teaspoon honey

Directions

Blend everything together and serve immediately.

 

Enjoy!
