Peel and slice fresh ripe mango ahead of time in large batches and store in airtight container in the freezer for up to 60 days. This will save you a ton of time and make smoothie-making in the mornings a breeze!
1 cup filtered water
1/2 cup coconut water (not from concentrate)
1 tbsp. chia seeds
1 tbsp. flax meal
1 cup frozen mango chunks (extra for garnish if you'd like)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
1 serving protein powder of choice (I prefer USANA MySmartShake plant-based protein powder)
3-4 ice cubes (optional)
Place all ingredients in a high speed blender starting with the liquids and blend on high for 1 minute. Garnish with a piece of frozen mango (just like a popsicle), eat and enjoy!
