Cucumber Mango Green Smoothie

My favorite smoothie recipe! PACKED full of fruits, vegetables, minerals and nutrients and only 200 calories.

Cucumber Mango Green Smoothie is my favorite green smoothie yet!  I mentioned several days ago on facebook that I learned how to make green smoothies at a class and I posted this basic green smoothie recipe and this advanced green smoothie recipe for you – now if you loved those you are really going to love this one.   I have been enjoying a green smoothie every morning since the class. In fact I am down 3 lbs this week!  Each smoothie has approximately 200 or less calories and is PACKED full of fruits, vegetables, minerals and nutrients. I am so excited.

I can tell you my energy level is amazing. One tip that I learned is to use a therapeutic grade lemon essential oil or lemon rind (but in my opinion the lemon essential oil works better) to take the “bite” out of the greens. I also learned that by adding 1/2 cup or so berries you will turn your smoothie to a beautiful shade of pink, blue or red and it tastes just a little better ;-) A great tip is to freeze your own fruit when it is a stockpile price.  I hope you enjoy!   You can even freeze green smoothies. 

I love to freeze ingredients for my green smoothies!  It saves me time and money!
