Simple Green Smoothie

I don't drink smoothies as much as I used to anymore, simply because I choose to eat my fruits and veggies instead. I enjoy smoothies just when I'm in the mood for one which is usually on Saturday mornings. I eat enough fruits and veggies regularly that drinking a smoothie ends up being additional sugar I don't need. There is nothing wrong with natural sugars from pure whole fruits - but if your already eating enough fruits, you don't need to add more to your diet with smoothies. I think smoothies are still a great go-to nutrient booster when your on the go and need a quick intake of nutrients or just to enjoy for pleasure.

When I do drink smoothies, I like them to be super easy and no-fuss. This is my favorite go-to quick smoothie.

Mango Spinach Green Smoothie
• 2 cups frozen mango chunks
• 3 cups baby spinach
• 1 1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice (or half water and half OJ if you want less sugar)

In VitaMix or high powered blender, blend all ingredients together until smooth. Serves 2.
