Description

This is my go-to breakfast when I need a lot of energy and endurance! Depending how much energy you need, you can add more bananas and mangoes. You can also put an extra 1/2 cup romaine lettuce (or spinach) into the smoothie without changing the taste. If you really like chia seeds (like I do!), you can add an extra tablespoon. I often drink this after eating 1 ounce sunflower seeds or nuts just to complete the meal. Feel free to add or modify anything you please. Delicious and nutritious.

Ingredients
  • 1 mango, chopped, or more to taste
  • 1 banana, sliced, or more to taste
  • ¾ cup cold water, or as needed
  • ½ cup chopped romaine lettuce
  • 2 ice cubes
  • 1 teaspoon flax seeds
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
Directions
  1. 1. Blend mango, banana, water, lettuce, ice, and flax seeds together in a blender until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add chia seeds to mango mixture and stir. Let sit until smoothie thickens slightly, about 2 minutes.
