Mango, Avocado, Spinach and Dates Smoothie #smoothieaday #smoothieonthego




My last post was all about how I have started my #healthyjanuary  journey, I am encouraging my family and my self to eat healthy. You can read all about it in my post here. I also explained in the post how to make smoothie packs for the freezer so that its easy to make your #onthegosmoothie in the morning. I created this delicious smoothie using my mango, avocado, spinach and dates  pack that I premade and have frozen into single servings.

    1. The key to a good smoothie is selecting ingredients that will compliment each other. The optimum 9400 is a fantastic blender and worth every penny.

    2. I am so pleased to hear your thoughts on the blender. Sometimes I think it is better to pay more and get a better quality product. I do love a good smoothie and I could make soups with the blender as well!

    1. You can skip the chia seeds and the dates .I used the dates to add sweetness, you can add honey or agave nectar or not add any sweetner if your mango is sweet.
