Smoothie overload … or at least that’s what it seems like right now.  

I know there are a bajillion (yes, bajillion) smoothie recipes floating around the internet at the moment but I’m ignoring that fact and sharing this one with you anyway.  

Because we can always use another smoothie recipe.  At least in my world we can.

I’ve been on the green smoothie bandwagon for a while now and have no intention of jumping off anytime soon.  I also just like the color that it makes my smoothies and we all know that pretty colored foods are more fun to eat.  

{Fact. Bears eat beets. Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica → I’m sorry I couldn’t help myself.  Favorite episode ever.  I totally heart Jim and Dwight}

Moving along … this vanilla mango spinach smoothie.  

You can’t taste the spinach and it’s really almost like a tropical vacation, with the mango and ginger.  A little creamy, a little sweet and a hint of kick.

Perfect for after a workout or after eating too many cookies…

Or for sipping on while watching Jim and Dwight argue at work.  Michael?! Michael!  Okay, I really am stopping now.
