Easy Strawberry Mango Smoothie with Protein
This strawberry mango smoothie includes two full cups of healthy, green veggies but is so deliciously sweet and creamy you’d never guess they’re in there. Almond milk and vegan vanilla protein powder add the perfect creaminess and sweetness and hydrating zucchini and celery add extra fiber, vitamins and minerals.
Best Vegetables for Smoothies
I never make a smoothie without sneaking in some veggies. Whether its spinach, kale and cucumber it’s amazing how many you can cram into a smoothie without actually tasting them.
Plus, I don’t know about you guys but I love a giant-sized smoothie that fills up a big mason jar. The best way to do this without adding more sugar and calories is to add volume with nutrient-dense, high-volume veggies. Adding veggies not only gets you a bigger smoothie but its also such as easy way to add essential fiber, vitamins and minerals to your diet.
Here are are my favourite veggies for smoothies:
- leafy greens like spinach, kale and romaine lettuce
- squash and pumpkin
Use Beets for a Pink Smoothie
I really wanted this smoothie to have a beautiful pink colour, so I snuck in a little piece of beet to amp up the pink colour and add some extra nutrition. A few small chunks of raw beet and was enough to get the colour I wanted. This is totally optional but feel free to do the same.
How to Make It a Smoothie Bowl
This recipe is also delicious as a smoothie bowl. To make it a bowl, add all the ingredients except for the almond milk, then slowly add it until you have just enough to get it to blend. Blend until smooth, then scoop into a bowl and top with ingredients like sliced banana, almond butter, hemp seeds and coconut.
