I normally enjoy posting inspirational stories, but being that I LOVE green smoothies and believe that everyone should try one at least once, (and if you love them, keep making them! ), I can’t help but occasionally share some recipes!
It is getting very warm (super hot, here in Phoenix!) so green smoothies are the perfect way to refresh yourself. I know for me, green smoothies helped me combat my major diet Coke addiction!
EDITED UPDATE: Just today, May 31st, the CDC issued a warning on berries sold at Costco by Townsend Farms- the frozen Antioxidant Blend. This happens to be the blend of berries that I used in this recipe. Please discard those berries if you have them in your freezer. Here is the source: http://www.foodsafetynews.com/2013/05/hepatitis-a-illnesses-linked-to-organic-berries-sold-at-costco/#.Uald7-tyUeO
Here is the most recent one that I made:
The Mango-Berry Blast
1/2 of a fresh mango (you can get these pretty cheap now that they are in season!)
about 1 cup of frozen antioxidant blend (from Costco)
1 cup spinach
about a handful of curly kale
1/4 cup goji berries (great super food!)
1 tablespoon lucuma powder (a natural sweetener that I found at Whole Foods)
Blend it all up and Enjoy!!!
