Find the recipe on BetterMeforLife.comI don’t know about you, but it seems like now that summer is here I’m busier than ever. The nice weather seasons are so short in New England that I tend to cram my days full of, well, everything.

Not that I’m complaining. A lot of it is fun. There’s cookouts, walking, hiking, working in the yard and on the house (okay, maybe that one’s not so much fun), and just sitting around outside soaking up the weather.

I have to admit I can be really bad about that last one. I guess I’m really not someone who sits around and soaks it all in. I’m trying to be better about that but it really isn’t in my nature.

When I’m busy like this, I look for a smoothie recipe that’s delicious and really easy to pull together. This mango strawberry green smoothie is just that – and it’s really good for you.

The mango and strawberry make for a sweet and creamy combination. Add some spinach and protein powder and you have a complete meal replacement smoothie.

Enjoy!

Health Benefits

Strawberry

Strawberries are packed with vitamin C. One serving contains more vitamin C than an orange. They have a unique combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients providing cardiovascular support and improved blood sugar regulation.

Mango

One cup of mango has 100 calories, 100% of your daily vitamin C recommendation and 35% of your vitamin A daily recommendation. One cup also contains 12% of your daily fiber recommendation.

Spinach

Spinach has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant health benefits, and is loaded with vitamins and minerals. It is also a great source of fiber and protein – both help to make you feel fuller faster and longer.
