As most of you all know I got the brand new a2300 series Vitamix a few weeks ago and ever since receiving it (yes, it was gifted to me but all opinions are my own, TYSM Vitamix!) I can’t stop using it! I’m truly addicted and let’s be honest if you’re going to get addicted to anything I think being a Vitamix addict is where it’s at!
The a2300 series is Vitamix’s newest machine and it does not disappoint. I’ve used other Vitamix machines before and they are all amazing but I love this one so much for its simplistic design and how easy it was to use! And the digital timer is AH-mazing! I now know exactly how long to blend my smoothies to get the perfect consistency and that is the best in my opinion! The other thing I love about the Vitamix is how easy it is to clean! I use my machine multiple times a day and having an easy to clean machine is KEY in my books! Okay now onto the good stuff, this recipe is one of my favorites. So tropical. So green. So healthy.
One of my go-to daily blends is green smoothies. I love green smoothies, they work great after a workout, for an easy grab and go breakfast and even for a snack to get you between meals!
Ever since my trip to Hawaii all I’ve been craving are tropical fruits so this smoothie has been on repeat at my house and completely hits the spot every time! There is something so amazing about the combo of mango and pineapple, a match made in heaven! Not only are they a tasty combo but the health benefits are amazing as well. Mango can help lower cholesterol, keep your skin clear, improve digestion and alkalize your whole body and pineapple can reduce inflammation in joints and muscles and can help boost immunity and improve blood circulation!
Basically, this green smoothie is more than just a tasty meal but it’s also so amazing for your health and your body! If you don’t have these ingredients in your cabinets and freezers, run to the store and grab them so you too can enjoy this tropical goodness!
