During the hot days of summer, I can think of no better way to replenish your energy while at the same time enjoying a delicious treat than to make a mouth-watering smoothie. Today’s Power-Packed Orange Mango Green Smoothie Recipe is sure to hit the spot and become a family favorite for many summers to come.

This smoothie is also a perfect companion piece to the Mango Cashew Salad I shared a couple weeks ago. You should be able to find fresh mangos at your local grocery store, plus I buy frozen mango chunks to keep on hand.

By the way, when it comes to top of the line blenders for creating smoothies, Vitamix is among the very best out there, followed closely by the Ninja. Actually, I used a Ninja for several years, and it blended practically everything I threw in it. In fact, I often used it like a food processor. It’s admittedly not as powerful as Vitamix, but I still think it’s a very good blender that has more uses than your regular everyday blender.

The best protein powder I’ve found is EAS Lean Vanilla Protein Powder. The calories are reasonable and the taste is great! The chocolate is good, too, but vanilla is my favorite. If you want a whole whole-foods option, check out Vega Protein Powder. The taste is not as great but no funky ingredients.
