I’ve found my new favorite refreshing beverage and it’s kind of a cross between a smoothie and good, thick juice. I came across the recipe on my friend Emili’s lovely blog, where flowers grow. And while I like and normally use bananas in smoothies, it is nice to use a different base (in this case mango).
This drink is very simple and oh-so refreshing. The only ingredients that you need are below (all measurements are approximate and can be adjusted to your taste!):
- 1 cup frozen mango (cut into chunks before freezing)
- 1.5 cups peach juice (organic if possible)
- 1/4 cup frozen chopped spinach
- a couple good splashes of sparkling water
I blended all of this in my Magic Bullet and it is SO delicious. I couldn’t even taste the spinach, even though the drink is quite green, and actually might even add a little more next time since it’s such a healthy addition. I think this will make for a great spring and summertime treat!
