I’ve decided that I’m going to cook my way systematically through The Flat Belly Diet Cookbook this year, and I just couldn’t wait for the summer to try the Mango Surprise Smoothie.
The avocado adds luxurious creaminess to the smoothie, balanced out and brightened by a shot of lime juice. Have it for breakfast with scrambled eggs or lean turkey bacon.
1/2 cup frozen mango cubes, or 1/4 cup fresh cubed mango and 6 ice cubes
1/4 of a medium avocado, diced
Combine all ingredients in a blender. Whizz until smooth.
Pour into a glass and garnish with a fresh lime or mango slice, if desired.
*Other MUFAs are vegetable oils, nuts, olives, and dark chocolate.
