Antioxidant kiwi mango smoothie

We really do take advantage of fruits and vegetables and make smoothies on a regular basis at my house hold. This antioxidant kiwi mango smoothie is an example. Refreshing, colorful, healthy and done in a matter of a few minutes.

It is hard sometimes to incorporate all the fruits and veggies I would like into our diet. This is why I turn to smoothies. We have at least one a day, sometimes for breakfast and some other times as a snack or even at dinner time.

This antioxidant kiwi mango smoothie is full of Vitamin C, fiber, minerals and antioxidants. I added turmeric powder to the mango part. Turmeric is one of the most potent antioxidants known to man so when cooking Indian food or making smoothies I tend to use this ingredient.

I always also use Silk Almond Milk. One of my favorite kinds is the unsweetened version. If adding any sweeteners to my smoothies I like being in control of it that is why I always buy the unsweetened kind.

Now that Silk has removed Carragean from their products is the only almond milk variety I buy, plus they are dairy, cholesterol and lactose free and verified by the Non-GMO Project.

I also use it to make frozen pops, for my oatmeal and cereal in the morning as well as for my tea or coffee. I have actually made a creamer with it before. I shall post that recipe soon.

To check Silk other almond milk products visit them here. Not only they have almond milk but many other variety of products. Also to keep encourage you to sign up for the Silk newsletter. You will be able to learn about new products coming out, sweepstakes and much more.

I hope you get to try this antioxidant kiwi mango smoothie. It is refreshing, healthy, nutritious and also vegan and gluten free.

Enjoy!

  1. I love potatoes of any kind and this looks great for the cooler weather. I’m definitely making these. Thanks!

  2. I am a huge potato fan and what you’ve done with these is a work of art. Love them!

  3. Looks great. Sorry about the flooding.

  4. Oh my good god, Miryam! These look amazing! Also — call me when you add goat cheese. That sounds totally dreamy.

  5. I’m getting hungry just looking at these!! TOTAL COMFORT. Want.

  6. Do they warm up good? I am thinking of making these for a Work Function but I would have to make them the night before of morning of. I would still have to wait 3 hours to service them and only have a toaster oven and microwave at work.

  7. Why have I lot thought of smashing potatoes!? Thank you for this! It is quick (sort of) and easy to make and I have a lot of spinach let at home.

  8. Im studying to be an RD and love to cook at home, just found this site today and love it! I like to cook a few things in advance when I know Im going to have a long week – Im thinking that I could bake a few extra potatoes on a day when I hae time and then do the smashing and broiling later in the week when I need something fast and yummy. Probably best to bring to room temp before hand so they cook nicely :)

  9. This is such a simple and wonderfull idea! Have to try it!!!
    Thanks so much for sharing!

  10. These are some beautiful looking smashed potatoes….yum!

  11. These look great! I am a dietitian as well and have always loved potatoes–they are packed with nutrients and so delicious!
