Blueberry Mango Smoothie | GreenSmoothieGirl
I like to use this Blueberry Mango Smoothie recipe when I wake up feeling less than sunny. This yummy smoothie uses coconut water to begin your day with a tropical, sunshine taste. As the ingredients are so minimal, this breakfast treat is quick to make as well as delicious. And, it can be made for your whole family to start the day off sunnier than it began (I know it’s always helped mine!). I like to use fresh blueberries when they’re in season, and blueberries I’ve frozen for the cooler months. It’s a taste of beautiful summer every time, even in cold January. You can substitute huckleberries if they grow near you!

Anytime I wake up feeling less than stellar, the Blueberry Mango Smoothie is my go-to breakfast. Blueberries and mangoes both contain essential vitamins and antioxidants that improve health and mood. Blueberries are considered a “super food,” which mean they are just bursting with health benefits! They are helpful in skin, heart, and mental health as well as blood pressure, cancer prevention, bone strength, and more! Mangoes also have a hand in skin health as well as being proficient in promoting a healthy gut, lowering cholesterol, benefitting eye health, stimulating digestion, and boosting immunity. The nutritional value of this smoothie is outstanding, and the taste is even better. The combination of two very sweet and fresh ingredients with the (also!) sweet, nutty taste of the coconut water creates a fun tropical experience. When starting your morning with the delicious and cheerful Blueberry and Mango Smoothie, how could your day go wrong?
