Summer is almost here! I can feel it! ?? Doesn’t this amazing weather just make you want to sip on a cool, revitalizing green smoothie made with fresh spring produce? I don’t know about you, but as the days start to become longer and the sun shines brighter, I start to crave fresh fruits and vegetables. There’s just something about spring produce that signifies an end to cold, dreary winter days and the beginning of bright, happy summertime bliss. And there’s nothing quite like a Strawberry Mango Spinach Smoothie to welcome the warm weather!
All you need to make this Strawberry Mango Spinach Smoothie is seven ingredients and five minutes. Just toss in some spinach, frozen mango, frozen strawberries, unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or other non-dairy milk of choice), ground flaxseed and grass-fed collagen peptides. Then, blend until smooth.
Strawberry Mango Spinach Smoothie = good for you!
We all know how good for you fruits and vegetables are (helloooo vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients!). But what about the other ingredients? Why do we need those? The ground flaxseed in this smoothie adds a boost of fiber and omega-3’s, for a happier, healthier gut. And collagen not only gives your smoothie a boost of protein, it has its own set of health-promoting perks! Both flaxseed and collagen also help make your smoothie thick, and help it stick with you for a few hours, so you’re not hungry later.
- Promotes healthy skin, hair and nails.
- Supports a healthy gut.
- Eases joint pain.
- Improves bone health.
- Supports brain health.
For more info on what collagen is and what it might be able to do for you, see last week’s recipe post.
If you’re looking for a healthy and delicious way to pack in some extra vitamins, minerals and protein into your busy day, look no further! I hope you’ll give this Strawberry Mango Spinach Smoothie a try.
