I'm a kitchen sink smoothie maker. Whatever I have on hand goes in the blender and viola! A quick breakfast or a healthy snack.
Last year I posted an "Elastic Approach" to how I make smoothies but I still like to share specific combinations that worked really well. This was one of them.
- ½ Mango
- ½ Banana
- 2 cups baby spinach
- 3oz Orange Juice
- 1 scoop of unflavored protein powder
- ~5 ice cubes
Put everything except the ice in the blender and blend. I use my Bullet. It works like a charm.
Add the ice and blend again until smooth.
This technique of blending without the ice and then adding it later works great for thicker smoothies when you don't use any frozen fruit.
I had mine after a run on Friday. Totally hit the spot!
