Even if it’s not warm and sunny where you are, this tart tropical treat is a refreshing breath of fresh air. This delicious smoothie is packed with important plant based nutrients like potassium and fiber. A plant-based diet that includes potassium rich foods has been shown to help reduce blood pressure and replenish necessary electrolytes that can be lost through sweat on a hot day or with exercise.
Look for a ripe mango for a sweeter flavor. Ripe banana and avocado will also lend better flavor, texture and nutrients to your smoothie.
