Today’s recipe is a green smoothie, just in time for this massive heat wave headed our way! It includes tropical flavors of mango and kiwi along with super spinach, and plant based fat from avocado to give a rich creamy texture! Enjoy!
1 kiwi, peeled
1 cup frozen mango
1 cup frozen spinach (or 2 cups fresh)
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 medium avocado
Combine all ingredients in a high powered blender and blend until smooth.
Note: If you don’t have a high powered blender, start by blending the spinach and almond milk first until spinach is completely smooth. Then add other ingredients.

Ok soooo shirts are still not up in the store guys! I thought I could get it done last week, but I’ve been so busy! Five days in, and August has already been a crazy month!
I haven’t done a smoothie recipe for quite some time and sine the weather is heating up here in Southern California, I thought it was about time. Have you ever tried avocado in a smoothie? Not only does it add a dose of healthy fats, omega-3, vitamins A, C, E, K and B6, along with an enormous amount of potassium, but it adds the perfect creaminess to your morning schmoozie. If you aren’t a fan of avocados, this is a great place to start since the flavor is very mild and almost unrecognizable in this mix of mango and yogurt.
Add some healthy plant-based fats to your morning smoothie with a little dose of avo!
