I have been really in to smoothies lately. I probably have one after my workout almost every day. Some days I go with berries, kale, protein powder, and almond milk. Other days, I spice it up a little more like with this creamy mango almond butter protein smoothie.
I didn’t realize how awesome mango is in smoothies. It adds such great sweetness and flavor. I’m definitely going to be putting it in my smoothies more often.
For this smoothie, I used mango, almond butter, vanilla Beast Sports protein powder, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and some flax seed for extra nutrients. I didn’t really know how the mango almond flavor combination would turn out, but it was awesome!
