Smoothie Week: Mango Monday

I have been on a MEGA smoothie kick recently.  I don’t know what prompted it, but it has been a lot of fun.  It has also prompted me to start having second breakfast, just like a Hobbit.  Usually, breakfast #1 is overnight oats.  I found my perfect blend, 1/3 cup rolled oats to 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk.  I add fruit in the morning.

I try to prep my smoothies as much as I can the night before, by washing and chopping the fruit I want to use.  This week I have planned out a “menu” based on the ingredients I have.   I ordered the Smoothie Kit from Irv and Shelley’s Fresh Picks, a WONDERFUL Chicago produce delivery company.  Having fresh ingredients on hand is key, and having them delivered makes a world of difference.

Mango Peach Coconut Smoothie

This one comes out to a 2 point breakfast.

Substitution options: Use coconut milk instead of smoothie packet, almond, soy or dairy milk instead of water, add spinach, bananas or berries for more nutrients. (May change PP values).
