Cucumber Mango Smoothie Recipe

It has happened.  I have just entered the world of smoothies and juices.  I have done a shake in the morning for a long time now.  It included the powder mix, peanut butter, coconut oil, water and ice.  My little mixer didn’t always handle fruits very well, and to be honest…the thought of adding any veggies to it always sounded a bit weird to me.  But, on my journey to a healthier me, I decided adding more fruits and veggies into my diet was the next step.

I have been taking my Juice Plus+ capsules and have been feeling great, so I knew my body was craving more.  I received the Nutri Ninja Auto iQ for review not long ago, so the timing was perfect for me to get a little crazy in the smoothie and juice department 🙂  I will be honest, I am glad I got the Auto iQ version, the easier the better is always the best route for me…especially being a 1st timer!

My friend keeps telling me that the best part about smoothies and juices is that it’s a great way to sneak in vegetables and lots of fruits all at once.  She also told me that cucumber is a great 1st vegetables to start with, so since I love cucumbers, they ended up in my grocery cart 🙂

My smoothie was mango, banana, cucumber, and my Vanilla Juice Plus+ COMPLETE Shake Mix.  It turned about absolutely AMAZING!  I was a bit nervous when I took my 1st sip, but I was pleasantly surprised.  It was actually the best tasting lunch I had in awhile 🙂  Filling too!
