This is my go-to breakfast when I need a lot of energy and endurance! Depending how much energy you need, you can add more bananas and mangoes. You can also put an extra 1/2 cup romaine lettuce (or spinach) into the smoothie without changing the taste. If you really like chia seeds (like I do!), you can add an extra tablespoon. I often drink this after eating 1 ounce sunflower seeds or nuts just to complete the meal. Feel free to add or modify anything you please. Delicious and nutritious.

This smoothie turned out an absolutely beautiful color! And since you eat with your eyes first....... Since I used mango that I had in the freezer I omitted the ice cubes. This smoothie turned out very thick so I also just used the chia seeds as a garnish on top. A bright color and a fresh taste! Read More
