Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 0 minutes
This smoothie helps you get your fruits and veggies together in a single glass. The edamame provides the protein, while the other produce offers a broad spectrum of vitamins, minerals and phyto-chemicals. It’s perfect for vegans and because it’s not a dairy-based smoothie, for people with milk allergies, and other allergies as well.
1½ cups unsweetened apple juice or apple cider
1½ cups baby spinach, packed
½ avocado, peeled and chopped
⅔ cup frozen mango chunks
1 frozen banana
½ cup frozen shelled edamame, defrosted
- Combine all the juice or cider, spinach, avocado, mango chunks, banana, and edamame in a food processor or blender and blend at high speed for 1 to 2 minutes, or until smooth. Divide between 2 tall glasses and serve immediately.
