Mango Spinach Smoothie
Makes one 24-32 ounce smoothie
1 cup frozen mango
1-2 cups water (depending on what consistency you desire, I use about 1.5 cups)
1 scoop whey protein powder
1 packet Crystal Light (I like classic orange in mine)
2 Tablespoons milled flaxseed (optional, but an important source of omega-3 fatty acids)
3 ounces fresh baby spinach
1. Place first five ingredients in blender, and blend on high until smooth.
2. Carefully add spinach, while the blender is running, a small handful at a time, until it is completely incorporated.
The above mug is a 28 ounce mug.
