Summer time is the best time of the year to enjoy a nice cold smoothie! My new smoothie is both healthy and delicious. If you drink all fourteen ounces on your own, you will find it quite filling as well. Nonetheless, you can also choose to share this awesome smoothie with someone else. Either way, my Magnificent Mango Kale Smoothie will help you maintain your health goals while adding a great tasting smoothie to your day!

Putting together a healthy smoothie isn’t rocket science, but you should have a way of tracking the calories and the nutritional elements of your recipe, so you will find the best option for meeting your individual dietary goals. I use the food diary in the app, MyFitnessPal, to do this for myself.

As I add on each ingredient to my food diary, it tells me the calories and more. For example, my Magnificent Mango Kale Smoothie is 416 calories for all fourteen ounces or 208 calories for half the recipe when made with the blue agave, which adds 60 calories to the recipe. Various programs have features that will count the calories and more, so if this interests you, look for the one that is best for you. In the mean time, check out the awesome recipe for my Magnificent Mango Kale Smoothie!

Grapefruit Strawberry Mango Smoothie Plus

By Jodee Weiland

I never tire of new smoothie combinations, especially before or after working out! Each smoothie combination is carefully thought out for the maximum boost I may be looking for on any particular day. Because I use mostly fruit and vegetables for my smoothies, each one is sure to be full of needed nutrients of all kinds. My Grapefruit Strawberry Mango Smoothie Plus is full of healthy nutrients and is delicious as well.

http://learnfromyesterday.comThis smoothie uses grapefruit, so if you are on certain medications for cholesterol control, you may want to substitute the grapefruit with orange segments and orange juice instead. The fruits have many of the vitamins and minerals that we all need to keep healthy. I like to use fruits with Vitamin C during the cold and flu season, to give me a little extra something to help fight germs and stay healthy. The plus in this smoothie is a carrot. This adds a vegetable to my smoothie, and it adds to the great flavor as well. All in all, this smoothie gives me the energy boost I need in the afternoon or mid-morning hours.

http://learnfromyesterday.comGrapefruit Strawberry Mango Smoothie Plus

  • 1 large carrot peeled and cut up
  • 1 cup grapefruit segments packed in light syrup
  • 3/4 cups fresh strawberries halved
  • 1 cup frozen fresh mango slices
  • OPTIONAL: 1/2 to 1 teaspoon organic honey

http://learnfromyesterday.comBlend all of the above ingredients in a blender until smooth and creamy. I did not add honey, but for those who prefer a sweeter flavor, add the honey as well. Pour into a glass to serve. This recipe makes one serving.

http://learnfromyesterday.comMy Grapefruit Strawberry Mango Smoothie Plus is both healthy and delicious tasting! This great smoothie is only 181 calories without honey, making it less than 200 calories. Even with honey, it will be only another twenty calories. It has no fat and six grams of fiber plus various nutrients. There are 305 milligrams of vitamin C for those of us looking to avoid colds and the flu this season. I love it because for me, it is a great energy booster before or after a workout without being high in calories. For whatever reason you choose to try this smoothie, I feel certain you will love the flavor, so enjoy!

Good Morning Strawberry Mango Plus Smoothie

Getting up in the morning and grabbing a healthy smoothie is a great way to start your day!

It was for these last two reasons, I included fruits, a vegetable, and almonds.

Thick Green Smoothie Magic with Almonds

By Jodee Weiland

Lately, I’ve been trying out some thicker smoothies that would be filling and could take the place of a meal while being nutritious and healthy as well. One thicker smoothie I put together was especially tasty. I think this smoothie was so good because of the addition of almonds. It’s much thicker than my regular smoothie, but the almonds also make it more filling. Almonds are heart healthy and since I love them, I felt certain they would add something great to the flavor. I was right, and the result was my Thick Green Smoothie Magic with Almonds!

http://learnfromyesterday.com

This smoothie has fresh mango, apple, and unsweetened pineapple juice, all of which have numerous vitamins and nutrients. It also has frozen spinach for a green vegetable, which gives it even more nutritional value. By including almonds I’ve add protein, because an ounce of almonds contains about one eighth of our necessary daily protein. The inclusion of almonds make this smoothie heart healthy and gives it the thick consistency I was looking for, making it more filling and a possible substitute for a breakfast or a mid-day meal without bread. That is exactly what I was trying to create with this new smoothie!

http://learnfromyesterday.comThick Green Smoothie Magicwith Almonds

  • 1 Granny Smith apple unpeeled, cored, and cut up
  • 1 cup fresh frozen mango slices
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1 and 1/2 cups unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 1 cup frozen spinach

http://learnfromyesterday.com

In a blender, blend together the apple, the mango, the almonds, and the juice until smooth. Add in the frozen spinach and once again blend until smooth, but thick. This recipe will make approximately two ten ounce servings. It can also be made less thick by adding additional juice, if preferred.

My Thick Green Smoothie Magic with Almonds is delicious and very healthy! This thicker smoothie could easily take the place of a breakfast or a mid-day meal without bread, while still satisfying your hunger. It has great nutritional value, which includes twelve grams of fiber and about 15 grams of protein. There are 404 calories in one serving or half of the recipe, but for a meal this is relatively low. High in fiber, protein, and nutrients, this smoothie will satisfy your hunger, while keeping you healthy, so enjoy!
