Incredible Smoothies Mango-Blueberry & Banana Green Smoothie Recipe with Oats

Submitted by: KDSKYWALKER

Introduction

Incredible Smoothies by Tracy Russell. "I hope youíre hungry because this mega meal-replacement smoothie recipe will fill you up and keep you energized until lunch. Itís got a lot in it and provides plenty of calories, protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals to be breakfast, lunch or dinner!
The banana, mango and blueberries blend nicely and none of them over-power each other. They effectively mask the celery and spinach. You could use a more potent green than spinach if you wanted to boost the calcium and iron content. Try kale or dandelion.
This smoothie even has rolled oats, which help give it a creamy texture. Soaked chia seeds (you can also use flax) provides a dose of health-supporting omega-3 fats.
This smoothie has 12 grams of protein (add a scoop of your favorite powder to double it) and 72% of your daily recommended value of fiber. It is a large smoothie so if you are not used to drinking this much at one time, you can either halve the recipe or drink half for breakfast the rest at lunch."

Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1 large banana, peeled
    3/4 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
    26 mango chuncks, frozen
    1/4 cup rolled oats
    5 small stalks of celery, chopped
    2 teaspoons of chia seeds, soaked for 20 minutes or flax seeds (freshly ground)
    2 cups spinach or other leafy green
    6 ounces of filtered water (I used coconut water)**

Directions

Start by adding the liquid to your blender (I use a Vitamix), followed by the soft fruit. Add the greens to your blender last. Blend on high for 30 seconds or until the smoothie is creamy.
NOTE: If you donít have a high-speed blender, youíll want to grind the flax seeds in a coffee grinder before adding them to your blender. You do not need to soak the flax seeds.

Serving Size:†1 smoothie
