Mango protein smoothie with spirulina and probiotics
Posted On April 26, 2021
This smoothie is part of a trick I have for getting back on track after a day of over-indulging. In this week’s case, Saturday was filled with birthday cake and pizza for our daughter, and Sunday morning was definitely a groggy one. We were craving something extra healthy, and I had just gotten my new Ninja blender in so this was the perfect breakfast. This smoothie has full fat Bulgarian yogurt for probiotics, grassfed vanilla protein powder and spirulina for extra nutrients. And the ninja did not disappoint … this blended in about 30 seconds!

I am a mom of two and wife to a martial arts school owner, full-time social media professional and avid cook and gardener. I love creating recipes and involving my kids in the process. The food we cook is usually dairy-free and gluten-free, and sometimes paleo, but we make exceptions (ahem, sourdough bread). The “hippie” part of this blog comes into play in the ingredients we use—I’m pretty vigilant about the health of my family and you could even call me “crunchy.” The “modern” part is that I am busy! You won’t catch me making my own nut milk or churning butter (not that there’s anything wrong with that). I’m more than happy to take the shortcuts provided by our lovely grocery stores and online shopping —especially in the midst of this global pandemic.
