Lemony Mango Burst

Whenever I eat a mango I instantly start dreaming of the sweet air, warm breeze and hot sun in Hawaii. Mangos are my husband’s favourite fruit and whenever we vacation in Hawaii we share a mango with our breakfast in the morning. It was actually my husband who introduced me to the combination of lemon and mango. It’s divine!

When I saw mangos for sale at my local grocery store, I knew I needed to make a lemon mango smoothie. It was exactly what I needed to start dreaming about our upcoming vacation to Hawaii.

I made this smoothie for my morning snack last week. I saved some for my daughter and brought it with me when I picked her up from school. I wasn’t sure what my daughter would think of this smoothie because of the colour, but when she drank it she said “mmm, delicious!”

I was also happy to find out that mangos offer a generous amount of vitamin C and vitamin A, plus 25 different kinds of carotenoids to help keep my immune system healthy and strong. Since I seem to be fighting off a different cold each week, I need all the extra vitamins I can find.Lemon_Mango_Spinach
