Make it a meal!
You can add in one or a few of these ingredients to make this smoothie into a meal.
1/2 cup rolled oats. Blend your oats until they are finely ground before you proceed with the instructions above.
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon grated ginger (or 1/4 teaspoon for a less intense taste)
Fresh or frozen fruits? The choice is really up to you. I enjoy a creamy smoothie and freezing the fruits help achieve that.
If using oats and/or chia seeds, you may need to add more water or milk if you don't like thick smoothies.
Not a fan of Mangos? Try Pineapple!
Toppings are totally optional but they're fun and make a beautiful presentation for your delicious smoothie. You can use basically anything your heart desire.
