{Fall Spice Smoothie}


Summary:

For all of you who haven’t read my article on 50 Fall ingredients that help with weight loss I highly recommend it! The article states that basically Fall spices (cinnamon, nutmeg & cloves) in particular can help speed up your metabolism and cut down fat in your body…In other words incorporating these amazing and simple no fuzz ingredients into your breakfast could provide with amazing health benefits. It also helps regulate your blood sugar levels, lower cholesterol and even suppress your appetite…So here is a spicy smoothie recipe that will help you jumpstart your day. I know most people associate mangos with Summer, but I buy the frozen mango chunks whenever they are available at my supermarket. I love them. They are perfectly ripe and naturally sweet. The coconut water and banana provide lots of electrolytes which makes this smoothie a healthy post workout snack alternative. Enjoy!

Serving Size: 3 – if you want 1 serving reduce the mango & coconut water by half but keep the other ingredients the same.

Ingredients:
4 cups frozen mango chunks
2 1/2 cups coconut water
1 banana
ground cinnamon
ground cloves
ground nutmeg
3 ice cubes

Directions:
Pour the slightly thawed mango chunks, the banana & coconut water into a blender. Mix until smooth. Adjust by adding more coconut water or ice cubes. Add a sprinkle of each Fall spice and then mix again. Add more spice if desired!
