Strawberry Peach Mango Green Smoothie Recipe from All Nutribullet Recipe

Ingredients

- peach mango juice to the fill line
- ½ cup frozen strawberries
- ½ cup frozen peaches
- small handful of spinach

Directions

Mix this until you get a smooth consistency, though you can add more juice to get the desired consistency. The strawberries offer antioxidants and a large quantity of Vitamin C. The spinach is packed with Vitamin K, antioxidants and fiber.

You can be creative! The idea is to use leafy greens and fresh fruits. The nice thing is that the greens cannot even be tasted in the smoothie. This will allow you to get the nutrition you need in a quick and great tasting manner.
