Green Mango Smoothie – Full Meal, Nut Free

 Green Mango Smoothie - Pale, Nut Free, Whole 30-5248

Another smoothie brainstorm to keep my son nourished and satisfied!

Lemon is a great ingredient to have on hand when using leafy greens: it cuts their bitterness and hides them nicely so it does not feel like you are drinking a cup of grass!  If you do not have a high powered blender, just use lemon juice, fresh or otherwise.

The magical protein ingredient here is again, GELATIN!  If you follow me you know how much I love this stuff. If you still need some more pushing to add this superfood to your smoothies…..

  • It makes the smoothie satisfying (pure protein!) without adding any taste or texture to the end product.
  • It is gut healing (bowel movements are extraordinarily healthy for my little guy now!).  Read more about its healing properties here if you like.
  • It is a real food, not a highly processed protein powder, so it is more easily used by our bodies.
  • My fingernails…they have been crazy strong and long, TOTALLY out of character for me!  Even my Rambo lifestyle of cooking, home improvement and gardening isn’t effecting them!
