I fell in love with this smoothie's thick and creamy texture and sweet, tangy flavor. It makes the perfect breakfast drink to pair with a bowl of overnight oats, tofu scramble, or chia pudding. This recipe is lightly adapted from Tess Master's The Blender Girl Smoothies (2015) published by Ten Speed Press.
Tess writes, "With a creamy texture and exquisite flavor, this immunity blend is a fabulous for collagen formation and glowing skin, hair, and nails. Mango's enzymes and vitamins A, C, and E cleanse the liver and aid digestion, and its potassium and fibre help regulate blood pressure and cholesterol. This one will make your heart happy."
4 CUPS (2 SERVINGS)PREP TIME
5 MINUTESCOOK TIME
1.5 cups orange juice
1/2 cup water, or more if needed
1/4 cup avocado
1/2 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
2 cups frozen mango (I used an entire 300g bag)
Pure maple syrup, to taste (optional - I added a teaspoon)
Add all of the ingredients into a high speed blender and blend on high for 30-60 seconds, until smooth and creamy. If using the Vitamix, you can use the tamper stick to get things moving. If the mixture seems too thick you can thin it with a bit more water.
Note: Tess says you can boost this smoothie with 1/2 teaspoon wheatgrass powder, 1 teaspoon chia seeds, and 1 teaspoon of flaxseed oil.
