It’s always been hard for me to get enough of my daily greens. I love veggies, but somehow always leave our my poor greens. This combo is a nice way to get a few handfuls of spinach in your daily diet in a tasty way.
If you’re looking to cut sugar, you could omit the mango and use a chia seed gel base, or coconut milk for a less thick version, and just a little of the mango for flavor.
Why mango? It’s delicious, but it is also said to help prevent cancer, improve eyesight, as well as a number of other health benefits.
Why blueberry? Low glycemic, great flavor, and antioxidents!
Why lucuma powder? Lucuma powder comes from a tree fruit- it’s not only delicious but it is a nutrient rich source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals including zine, iron, calcium, carotene, vitamin B3 and other B vitamins. It also adds a little sweetness without being too sugary.
Why spinach? We all know greens are great. Full of nutrients and antioxidants.
You will need:
- 1 sliced mango
- 1/2 cup-1 cup of almond or coconut milk
- 3/4 cup of blueberries
- 1 tsp honey (if extra sweetness is desired)
- 1 tbsp lucuma powder
- handful of spinach
- 3-4 ice cubes
This one is pretty straightforward- blend and enjoy!
