Vegan Mango Green Smoothie

I made this smoothie this morning. I thought it was really delicious and wanted to share it with you.

1 cup frozen mangoes

3/4 scoop MRM Veggie Protein

1 cup cold water

a handful of washed spinach

Mix in blender until smooth. That’s it. It will be a pretty green color and will have the fresh sweetness from the mangoes.

  1. What you are talking about is a life style cnhage not a diet. Diets are temporary and do not last. Also neither a vegan or vegetarian diets has more weight loss benefits than the other. Weight loss has to do with metabolism, diet, and exercise. Basically you just need to watch how many calories you are taking in daily. Vegetarians and vegans are definitely not always skinny. Although their limited diets consist of foods that are lower in calories they also deprive the body of important nutrients if care is not taken. I suggest becoming a pescatarian (i.e. essentially a vegetarian that eats fish and seafood). Regardless you do not need to become a vegan ect to lose weight. Eat lean meat, plenty of fruits and vegtables, whole grain wheat breads, and drink plenty of water. Just limit your consumption. One should never eat until he/she feels “full”. Also people who eat throughout the day tend to weigh less. Eat small meals ( lunch example: sandwich(bread,meat, maybe cheese/ a yogurt/ and an apple) and eat a small snack in between to prevent hunger (carrots, celery, or a banana). Most people overeat because of prolonged hunger. And finally make sure you get at least 30min. of exercise daily.

    • Thanks for writing in. You make excellent points and I agree with everything you wrote. I believe that everyone should eat a few vegan sides, or snacks, or 1 vegan meal a day. We don’t need meat in every meal as there is protein in practically everything. A vegan fruit beverage is a great way to start the day. To enrich a smoothie with protein, you can add veggie or soy protein powder. I’m not a vegan but I do incorporate vegan side dishes to my repertoire daily. You don’t need dairy in your vegetables to make them tasty.
