Have I ever told you how much I love mangoes? My body is still detoxing, I’m in the midst of a transition to a more permanent location for my life, I’m working full time, volunteering a few hours each week — basically I’m insane. So what I do I do when I live in crazy town and I have to eat (because eating is important to semi-sane mental function), I make smoothies! If you my dear follower are sick of smoothies, try google.
For everyone else! THIS is THE smoothie. Not only is it quick, amazingly delicious, bright and vibrant for spring but it is also packed with vitamin C, healthy fat and gentle blood cleansing agents from lemon and lime.
While this smoothie isn’t “green” it is a great addition to a green smoothie lifestyle. This is the smoothie you make when you’re craving something you’ll regret — it tastes regrettable, so regrettable and yet it actually helps balance blood sugar with its citrus freshness, and alkalizes your body at the same time.
So whip out your blender and cream up something deliciously easy, and completely delicious!
I’m more than a little obsessed with the scent of this smoothie. The process of peeling limes and lemons brings me back to my childhood on a swing under a lemon tree in Venezuela. Citrus always brings me back.
I’m also more than a little obsessed with fresh herbs. Nothing says spring to me quite like the taste of fresh mint leaves. I am not afraid to admit that I wasn’t sure how lime and mint would interact…. and then I tasted it.
I may, possibly, have started yelling very loudly.
I also may possibly may have forced my sister to cut her shower short to taste it.
But I can neither confirm or deny whether that actually happened.
I’d sit here and regale you or more interesting facts about my life — but its nice outside. So, I’m going outside. You should too, but only after you make this smoothie first!
