With, protein shakes, meal replacement drinks, juice detox, we have seen a trend whereby many like to consume their extra dose of nutrients in liquid form. We are here for it! Not only is it easier to prepare, but also takes no time to consume and can also be a healthy dessert fix if made deliciously. Food pairings in smoothies and shakes are essential just like in cooking. When the tastes do not go well together, or one ingredient overwhelms another, it would not be an enjoyable treat.
The ingredients in this recipe are curated especially for those who do not like their greens! We got your back, as this smoothie is jam packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, polyphenols and is guaranteed to please every taste bud.
What you’ll need:
- 1½ cups spinach
- 1 cup mango
- 1 cup avocado
- 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon spirulina (optional)
- ½ cup water/milk
- handful of ice
Blend all together and serve.
The sweet citrus from the mango goes so well with avocado’s creamy taste and texture. Spinach boosts the freshness of this smoothie with a hint of cocoa to tie the flavours together. We personally prefer swapping milk with fresh unsweetened coconut or soy milk as a non-dairy option. On the other hand, if you would like a thinner smoothie, use water instead.
