Recipe of the Week #5: Tropical Mango Smoothie!

Summer’s here–meaning it’s time for refreshing, tropical smoothies! This mango smoothie is an easy, everyday drink that works perfectly as part of breakfast or as a snack. The slightly tart kiwi cuts back the sweetness of the mango, resulting in the perfect combination.
For extra ripe fruits, squirt extra lemon or use half a mango and 2 kiwis instead. You can play around with this smoothie by substituting kiwi for a handful or berries, or for a nutritional boost, add a couple leafs of Swiss chard or a bunch of spinach leaves.
