We all love a good smoothie, but let’s admit it, sometimes we get carried away with adding too much fruit and juice and not enough other goodies. Our family has been making smoothies for years and we have finally created a few recipes that are a win-win when it comes to balancing taste and healthy ingredients. Today, I’m sharing my personal favorite. I originally created this combination of ingredients for my son, who was recently diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease, but found that it’s a perfect fit for all of our palates.
Strawberry, Banana, Mango + Protein Smoothie
1 ripe banana
1 cup strawberries
1 cup mangos
1 handful of organic spinach
1 TBS coconut oil
1 scoop Green Superfood drink powder
1 scoop Organic Plant Protein Powder
1 tsp L-Glutamine powder
1 packet probiotics (we use VSL#3)
3 cups pure coconut water (we love raw coconut water too)
Combine all the ingredients in a blender and mix until well combined.
Serve and enjoy!
** When adding supplements into your diet it is very important to speak to your physician or pediatrician about those supplements and the correct doses. Probiotics and L-Glutamine are great supplements, but please consult your physician before using.
