Refreshing and packed with vitamins, this Mango Spinach Green Smoothie is just the pick-me-up you need to get through your day.
I have been lucky to have met a number of fabulous food bloggers in the past year or two. After spending a good 3 years juggling home life, blogging in the wee hours and basically hiding behind the computer screen, I now have a slew of bloggers that I can call my friends.
Some I have met at conferences, others I have never met face-to-face. But the support, camaraderie and general warm & fuzzies are priceless. And today I want share some blogging love and introduce you to Stacy, from Center Stage Wellness.
Stacy is such a sincere person and positive energy force, you won’t know what hit you! She is a healthy life coach, foodie and such a wonderful person to get to know. I took her January Jump Start to set a strong momentum into my new year’s resolutions.
Although a two-month cough kept me from getting everything I wanted accomplished, I still use a lot of what I learned with Stacy in my day-to-day routine.
I recently went to her site in search of a green smoothie recipe, which I admit, I’ve been avoiding like the plague. I wanted something healthy, not overly sweet and certainly something that did NOT taste like swamp juice.
Stacy’s smoothie is super simple. It’s also goof proof, as I eye-balled the measurements, even adding more spinach than the recipe called for. Plus, instead of kefir I used Greek yogurt.
And it is delicious. Great for breakfast on the run, or a little afternoon pick-me-up.
You can also try this green smoothie with other healthy greens like kale or chard, or even a mix of your favorite greens.
