Mango Green Tea Smoothie | Cooking Classy

Even in the middle of winter it’s so nice to have a refreshing and revitalizing smoothie! This Mango Green Tea Smoothie is the perfect pick me up to start your day and of course it’s packed with good for you ingredients. I love smoothies and this is actually the first time I’ve tried green tea in any smoothie before. You won’t really taste it but according to this article on WebMD (an many others) it has so many health benefits, so drink up! I’ll be adding it to my smoothies all the time! If you haven’t tried green tea in your smoothies before this is the perfect place to start, who doesn’t love a sweet and vibrant mango smoothie? If you didn’t plan ahead and make the green tea the night before you could just steep it in a little less water than directed for 5 minutes then add ice to chill.

  • 2 cups packed (2.5 oz) fresh spinach

      • Jane Mitchell: avocado gives creaminess with no discernable taste! as for weight, My whole life i’ve always looked for shortcuts…BUT, the healthier I get, the less I worry about calorie counts: when I see ‘avocado’ or similar, I now think, “yea for me, healthy fat AND vegetable!” When i get chance to eat baked sweet potato (which is sweet without any toppings) i Think, “Sooo nutrient dense, who cares about stupid carbo count”… except if you have diabetes, probably.
