Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. We’re currently in Florida visiting family and the weather is so warm and pretty here. Don’t get me wrong, Northern California is hard to beat but sometimes it’s nice to be able to walk around in shorts and flip-flops without having to worry about carrying a jacket with you everywhere. Hopefully it’s warming up wherever you are too because you are definitely going to want to cool down with this Strawberry Mango Spinach Smoothie. 🙂
Frozen mango gives it a creamy texture that’s perfectly sweet on it’s own so there’s no need for added sugars. Then there’s fresh strawberries which are in abundance right now and are begging to be eaten. I don’t know about you but I buy mine organic and it’s always a race to eat them all before they go bad.
This smoothie = problem solved.

Because I’ve been traveling much lately, I want to keep my immune system in top-notch condition so I’ve been adding a scoop of MegaFood’s Daily C-Protect Nutrient Booster Powder to my smoothies every morning. It offers a concentrated dose of Vitamin-C delivered in whole organic oranges (you can literally smell them in the powder!), as well as polyphenolic compounds from farm fresh berries to help boost the immune system and support the body’s response to healthy stress.*
While I’m a firm believer that you should get as many nutrients from your diet as you can, there are certain circumstances (like traveling) that can make that hard to do sometimes. I also try to limit the amount of dairy I eat which can make it difficult to meet my daily B-12 requirement. As a result, I like to have specific supplements on-hand and has been my favorite brand for years. I can always trust that they’re using high quality ingredients sourced from farm fresh whole foods. As you can imagine, I was really excited when they reached out to me to become an ambassador for them this year. Being able to partner with a brand that I already use and love is like a dream come true for me. I’ll be able to tour their facility in New Hampshire to learn all about how their supplements are made and you’ll also see a few more recipes featuring their awesome Nutrient Booster Powders over the coming months!
If you’re looking for some new green smoothie inspiration then I hope you’ll give this one a try! The flavor is super refreshing and with a hefty dose of vitamin-C, you’ll be glowing all day long. It’s a win-win situation. 🙂
