Avocado Mango Lime Smoothie

Avocado Mango Lime SmoothieYes, this smoothie does taste as good as its name would lead you to believe. Avocado, mango, and lime make a divine combination.

Avocados have become one of my favorite smoothie ingredients because they provide that staple smoothie creaminess I crave and love. They are a great source of healthy fats and an average avocado contains about 4 grams of protein. Avocados are also a good source of dietary fiber and high in vitamins K, C, B5, B6, folate, and potassium.

Mangoes are no nutritional slouch. Mangoes are a good source of dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They contain vitamins A, C, E, and K, as well as potassium, phosphorus, iron, and magnesium. Another key health benefit of mangoes are their anti-inflammatory properties. Research has shown mangoes to protect against certain cancers. This “super fruit” can also be used on your skin to help clear up acne and blemishes.

Try making this smoothie with a couple of ice cubes if your mango chunks aren’t frozen. Enjoy!

    drinking this now – surpisingly good! i am not an avocado fan, but you can’t taste it at all. It would have never occurred to me to add lime. Makes it really refreshing.

    • Ryan Carmody #

      Yes, avocado is barely noticeable and lends to a nice thick body. Lime is another great smoothie ingredient. Nice to year you enjoyed this, Tamar.

    I added a shake of paprika and cayenne (like when you get it from a street vendor) to mine and I loved it. I also had some greek non-fat key lime yogurt I stirred in after I blended for a little more citrus and creaminess– if you do this make sure you don’t add the lime juice directly to the dairy or it’ll curdle.

      That sounds divine, Kelli! Love when people modify my recipes and make them their own :)
