Oh man, I love a good green smoothie. Especially after a tough workout – it’s refreshing, healthy, and when I make it, packed with protein.
Usually after a long run I go straight to my favourite green smoothie. It’s cool, protein packed, and just a little sweet. But sometimes you need to mix it up a bit!
I recently had a mango ginger green smoothie at Jamba Juice and I loved it! I thought I’d make my own version at home, one with a little less sugar and a little more protein. I use frozen fruit because who has fresh peaches and fresh mangos around at the same time, right?
It’s SO GOOD. Tart, a little sweet, and tastes so fresh! I’m hooked. It’s just what I need to switch up my green smoothie game!
1/2 cup frozen mango
1/2 cup frozen peaches
1 cup baby spinach
juice of half a lemon
1 tbsp fresh grated ginger
1 cup milk (nondairy, to keep it vegan)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
Combine all ingredients in your blender and blend until smooth. Easy!
