Mango Green Smoothie for Weight Loss
This smoothie is very easy to prepare and does not take much time. Like for other smoothies, this smoothie also require a blender or food processor to prepare it.
2 Medium sized Bananas
1 Mango sliced. You may replace it with frozen mango chunks if you do not find fresh mango.
1 Cup Frozen Spinach
1 Avocado (small to medium sized)
1 Cup low fat yogurt
Add banana, one mango slices, one cup frozen spinach, one avocado and one cup low fat yogurt to the blender. Turn on the blender to blend all ingredients to make nice green smoothie. If you find that the smoothie is not sweet to your liking, then you can add some honey.
I sometimes substitute the frozen spinach with fresh spinach if it is available in my kitchen when I am preparing the smoothie.
You may also add some workout in your daily activities to have a nice toned body.
