So just in case you are not in total spring mode, I am going to motivate you! Today I have one of my favorite smoothie recipes. I will warn you, I load my drinks up! I have them for breakfast and I want them to keep me full until the afternoon. I also think it is the perfect opportunity to throw in some extra nutrients to get you though the day!
Now don’t get squeamish on me with this green machine. I am completely aware it looks unappetizing, which is why I don’t drink it out of a clear glass. (ha!) It is good I promise! This is full of mangos, peaches spinach, and white grape juice! You absolutely cannot taste the spinach, I swear! You really only taste the mango, peaches, and juice. It is very tropical and refreshing!
Now here is a great example of a very hearty, well balanced breakfast. Baked Ham and Red Pepper Stacks, with a small red potato thinly sliced and roasted with a little olive oil, served alongside a Mango Peach Green Smoothie. This gives you a full serving of fruit and vegetables, a healthy dose of protein and carbs to sustain you!
- 1 cup baby spinach
- 1 cup frozen peaches
- 1 cup frozen mango
- 1 cup white grape juice
- Place ingredients in blender in the order listed and blend until everything is completely smooth.
- If your blender isn't super great at blending add the spinach and juice, blend well then add the fruit. This will help you make sure you have no lingering leaves.
