Green mango smoothie anyone? We all think of healthy when we think green mango smoothie, but I like to think of how good it tastes!
Green smoothies used to be a no go for my husband and me. However, I recently started making smoothies because of their health benefits. I like having a green smoothie at least twice a week if not more. Now our kids are even asking for smoothies. They haven’t made any special requests for the green mango smoothie (slowly getting there) but they love when I make my strawberry banana smoothie.
I also love to read about the benefits of green smoothies. The health benefits are not something you can go without notice. Packed with fiber, green smoothies may help lower your cholesterol. Green smoothies also provide nutrients to the body like Vitamin A and Vitamin D. Hey, this body is a temple and I’m going to treat it as such. Give me all those health benefits! LOL
Can you substitute the whole milk?
Yes, you can substitute the whole milk with almond milk. It honestly tastes the same.
Can you store a green smoothie overnight?
I always place my smoothie in an airtight mason jar. If I am going to let my smoothie stay in the refrigerator overnight, I make sure to add a squeeze of lemon juice to keep the smoothie fresher longer.
How can you sweeten a smoothie?
You can sweeten your smoothie in several ways. I think bananas bring out the flavor of a smoothie and give it the right amount of sweetness. You can also add honey, agave, and stevia. Those are healthier ways to sweeten your green smoothie.
How to make a green mango smoothie?
LOL, this I may not need to explain but just in case I will explain these quick steps in detail.
Add all your ingredients into the blender. The order does not matter, do whatever tickles your fancy. Just throw it in there. Blend your ingredients until they are smooth or to your liking.
If you find your smoothie is too thick add more milk. If you find your smoothie milky, add more mangoes.
That’s it! Now go get your smoothie on!!!
