Explosive Mango & Berry Smoothie Recipe
One of my new favorite morning drinks has got to be my mixed berrie and mango smoothie and Spinach concoction infused with coconut oil and flax seed oil the liquid is simply water to get things going in the blender. The items needed for this delicious taste experience are as follows:
1/2 cup of fresh or frozen Mango I had some frozen organic from Costco which is awesome
1/2-1 cup of mixed berries the kind I use has blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries. I used frozen for this as well since fresh ones are rather expensive at this time of year.
2 cups luke warm water helps to thaw out the frozen fruit a bit if your using a Vitamix or Blendtec no need for warm water.
2-3 cups fresh organic spinach
2tsps flax seed oil
3tsps coconut oil
For added protein and Omega 3's Chia seed powder could be used or a bit of hemp seeds would also work well.
For an antioxidant power punch 1/2 cup of Goji berries could also be added and instead of water some steeped green tea could be used.
This beverage will not only keep you going throughout the morning it will also help move your bowels a bit if your plugged up with the fiber from the spinach and all the yummy Vitamin C and the antioxidants will help rid your body of free radicals which can cause cancer.
Most health food stores will carry the oils or you can find them online if you click on my shopping links.
God Bless and with the holiday season nearing Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
