Mango Peach Sunshine Smoothie

Print

I love this smoothie for many reasons. The first is that it has mangoes in it which help me gain weight with my newly diagnosed Celiac Disease and help build lean muscle; two things I am a fan of. But also because it has two new ingredients for my meals; Sunshine Raspberries + dried persimmons. Something I love doing with my posts is highlighting ingredients that not many have tried or would reach for unless encouraged and enlightened. This smoothie post adds two to the list, so that was pretty exciting. Honestly, the majority of my morning creations are made on a whim. I got lucky with the colors being all very similar.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Mangoes are an excellent source of beta carotene and vitamin C. One medium-sized 8 ounce mango has 135 calories and provides high amounts of potassium, vitamin E and iron. Mangoes are also high in pectin and fiber and low in calories! This smoothie is a great meal replacement and also great for those who have a low potassium level.
