Peach Mango SmoothieRich, creamy, sweet, and filling. We love these as a mid-afternoon snack and sometimes instead of a meal. They are high protein and have enough oomph to fill up The Husband’s tank. Loaded with Vitamin A and C and anti-oxidants.

Why call this a power smoothie? It is rich in fiber and essential omega-3 fatty acids from the chia seeds. Maca root powder is great for men, as it has positive effects on libido and sexual function. Buckwheat provides complete proteins and all the essential amino acids plus iron, zinc, and selenium. Mango gives you Vitamins A & C along with a range of anti-oxidants. Cacao nibs add in flavonoids and all the health benefits of chocolate without the sugar. You can use any type of non-dairy milk; we use organic unsweetened soy milk.

Suitable for:
vegan, gluten-free, low-sodium, migraine, reduced-sugar diets

Not for:
low-sodium or migraine diets

When mangoes or peaches are on sale, buy a few, let them ripen, cut them up, and freeze them. Then you can make smoothies quickly.
Lay the cut pieces of fruit out on baking sheets covered with parchment paper or silicone, with space between the pieces. Freeze until solid, then place in ziploc bags.
Required FTC disclosure: The mangoes were sent to me by The National Mango Board. I was not paid to write this post.
