Cucumber Mango Green Smoothie is my favorite green smoothie yet! I mentioned several days ago on facebook that I learned how to make green smoothies at a class and I posted this basic green smoothie recipe and this advanced green smoothie recipe for you – now if you loved those you are really going to love this one. I have been enjoying a green smoothie every morning since the class. In fact I am down 3 lbs this week! Each smoothie has approximately 200 or less calories and is PACKED full of fruits, vegetables, minerals and nutrients. I am so excited.
I can tell you my energy level is amazing. One tip that I learned is to use a therapeutic grade lemon essential oil or lemon rind (but in my opinion the lemon essential oil works better) to take the “bite” out of the greens. I also learned that by adding 1/2 cup or so berries you will turn your smoothie to a beautiful shade of pink, blue or red and it tastes just a little better A great tip is to freeze your own fruit when it is a stockpile price. I hope you enjoy! You can even freeze green smoothies.
I love to freeze ingredients for my green smoothies! It saves me time and money!

Cucumber Mango Green Smoothie

Add 2 cups of almond milk to blender
Add 1 large handful of spinach, the kale and swiss chard
Blend greens - add more greens if desired
Add cucumber (peel included) - chop into smaller pieces if you are using a blender versus a blendtec or vitamix
Add 1 stalk of celery (chopped because I don't have a blendtec or vitamix)
Add 1/2 cup frozen mango
Add 2 drops of lemon essential oil or some freshly ground lemon peel
If you want add the fresh mint (it is amazing)
This recipe makes two smoothies. Enjoy one for breakfast and the other for an afternoon snack.
You don't have to get hung up on measuring - feel free to "eye ball" it or use what you have in your refrigerator.
