Banana Mango Protein Smoothie
Personally, I LOVE smoothies. I remember my stepmom making me some on the weekends. Berries, banana, chocolate, you name it, I’ve probably had it. But the older I’ve gotten the stronger my appreciation has grown for smoothies. You see, I love to eat as much as the next girl. But sometimes, I just feel like my digestive system could use a little break. Especially around that time of the month. A lot of the time my appetite is basically non-existent on the first day of my period. This is why I wanted to share my favorite smoothie recipe (at least currently).
It’s so easy to get your vitamins and nutrients in with a simple smoothie. Sneak in some celery, spinach, lettuce, or kale into a 5-minute smoothie. And I promise you won’t even taste it. You can enjoy them as a post workout snack, breakfast, or a sweet treat. The bananas contain lots of fiber and magnesium, which helps flush out excess water during that time of the month. Enjoy the recipe!
½ cup frozen mangos
1 scoop of vanilla plant-based protein powder
½ cup of vanilla nonfat Greek yogurt
½ cup almond milk or water
1 cup of spinach
You just throw all the ingredients in the blender and enjoy! You could also keep the ingredients in a plastic bag or container and have them ready throughout the week. Enjoy!
