Refreshing Green Smoothie

My favorite green smoothies always include mango, baby spinach, and banana. I always love to kick up the flavor and nutrients by adding other refreshing fruit and super foods. This recipe has super flavor, super powerful nutrients, and very refreshing. There’s a hint of peppermint leaving a delightful tingle in your mouth after you finish drinking it. Enjoy!


 Ingredients:
1 scoop raw protein powder
¼ cup goji berries 
2-3 handfuls spinach 
1 scoop green super food powder 
1 T bee pollen 
1 tsp vanilla bean powder 
1 small banana 
¼ cup pineapple chunks 
1 cup mango chunks 
1 cup papaya chunks 
¼ cup cherries (pitted and stemmed) 
4-6 drops peppermint flavored liquid stevia 
2-3 cups coconut water 
6-8 cubes purified ice purified water (add what’s needed for desired consistency) 
(for best results freeze fruit prior to use)

Preparation:
Place all ingredients in a high speed blender, and mix on high until smooth and creamy. Add purified water a little at a time for desired consistency.
