Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen mango pieces
  • ¾ cup almond milk
  • ½ frozen banana optional
  • a handful of spinach (I used frozen) approximately 1 cups worth
  • 1 scoop protein powder I used pea protein
  • 1 scoop peanut butter powder or 2 tbsp of peanut butter paste

Instructions

  • Add all of the ingredients to a blender.
  • Whip into a smooth consistency and pour into 2 tall glasses.

Notes

  • This recipe makes 2 servings, but you can half the recipe for a single serving.
  • I recommend using a high powered blender i.e Vitamix, Blendtec. If not, you may need to add the ingredients in stages to avoid burning out the motor.
  • Feel free to use fresh fruit, if you don't care for the thick, frozen texture.
  • Add any additional fruit if you like i.e pineapple, berries, orange etc...
  • Rather than freezing down fresh fruit, buy fruit that is already frozen, it is significantly cheaper.
  • If you don't have spinach, kale works just fine.
  • I used a scoop of protein powder and peanut butter powder to boost the levels of healthy fat and protein but you can use 2 scoops of any nut butter instead.
