Mango Banana Lime Smoothie

FullSizeRender (9)

Much like my Mango Cilantro Lime Smoothie, this green smoothie has a fresh, refreshing, summer taste, full of summer herbs and fruit. My initial intent was to make a mango lime smoothie, but I thought to add a couple additions to the usual mix to see how it would come out, and the result was delicious! Just adding 1 banana and some basil gave this already delicious smoothie a new whole, amazing taste! I even had my co-workers try it at work to see what they would think, and the result was unanimous: this is a green smoothie everyone would drink.

Ingredients are simple, easy, and you can omit or add anything you wish to it! So without further ado…let us being!

  • 2 cups frozen mangoes or 2 fresh mangoes
  • 1 fresh or frozen banana
  • 1 large handful fresh cilantro
  • 2 large handfuls spinach
  • juice of 1 lime plus a small part of the lime peel
  • 1 small handful fresh basil
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds

Put all ingredients except the cilantro and spinach into your high powered blender. Blend on high, while gradually feeding the spinach and cilantro in.

As soon as the mix is fully blended, turn off blender, pour into glass and serve! This makes a great breakfast smoothie, and it is so refreshing and delicious!
