Okay mango haters, this is the smoothie for you (and you know who you are). All the benefits of the mango, none of the flavor. Of course, for the mango lovers in the house, you can increase the mango to taste some of it – plus it’ll increase the creaminess of the smoothie with more mango. This smoothie is a great energy boost, immunity boost, healthy skin boost, not to mention watermelon being a great cleanser for the body’s digestive system. Other nutrients in this delicious smoothie include beta-carotene, biotin, folic acid, vitamins B5, C and E, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium, sodium, and sulphur. If you leave the watermelon seeds in, and blend them up along with everything else, you’re also helping your body to some zinc – while giving the smoothie a very subtle nuttiness. This recipe makes about 500mL (2C), just enough for you and the pooch (or your sweetie). But don’t stray too far, the pooch will need to go out sooner than normal after this smoothie 😉 .
1/4 of a small watermelon (mine was about 8” long)
1/2 C frozen mango
1/2 C frozen raspberries
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
