I’ve been feeling not so great the past two days. Summer colds = NOT FUN.
Those three things combined means that I have been craving something cold and creamy.
Let’s be real…. eating healthy is the LAST thing you want to think about when you’re feeling under the weather.
I know my body is needing some nutrients to help heal and repair. So I turned to my trusty Vitamix to whip up a creamy and delicious smoothie PACKED with greens. My greens of choice?
Spinach is my favorite way to add hidden nutrients and iron without altering the flavor integrity of the fruit. And the added mangos really make you feel like you are sitting on a tropical beach, when you might just be curled up under blankets on the couch.
Peach-Mango Green Smoothie
- 1 cup flax milk
- 1/4 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt
- 1 scoop protein powder
- I used Nature’s Way Vanilla = 120 calories + 15 g protein per serving
- 3 large handfuls fresh spinach (56 g)
- 2/3 cup frozen mango (100 g)
- 1/2 cup frozen peaches (77g)
Layer ingredients in order listed in a high power blender. Blend until smoothie.
Enjoy with a straw in your favorite glass!
