Mango PEAña Colada Protein Smoothie

7 May

If you asked me the inspiration for my recipes, more than half the time the answer would be “hunger!” Either after work, after sleeping, or after exercising, I’m hungry and want food NOW. But rather than digging into packaged foods, I’d much prefer a homemade meal or in this case, a healthy smoothie!

I recently picked up some gorgeous fresh mangos, so that was an obvious place to start. I’ve also been experimenting with frozen peas in my smoothies for extra protein and greens, so I dumped them in as well. From there, a serving of protein powder, some liquids and a bit of coconut to bring it all together makes this mango PEAña colada a drink of flavor!

    I really love the idea of adding peas to smoothies! I feel as though I’m pretty adventurous with the vegetables I throw into smoothies, but I haven’t tried peas yet…must give them a go!

      They’re such a perfect little vegetable. I now understand why my parents tried to force them on me as a child!

    LOVE the peas!! A smoothie isn’t complete without a “weird” hidden veggie!
