Love Your Heart Healthy High Protein Smoothie

1 cup Dole strawberry banana mango chunks in the frozen section

Half cup of fresh baby spinach

4 tablespoons thawed orange juice concentrate

2 tablespoons MLO Protein Vegetable Powder with Balanced Amino Acids and added papain.

1/2 cup of Greek yogurt

2 ice cubes

Load the ingredients in the order I mentioned into your NutriBullet or into a sturdy food processor or blender. All of these ingredients will not fit into a Magic Bullet. The motor on the NutriBullet is much better than the one of the Magic Bullet, Leaps and Bounds better! There’s no comparison between the two. I had both in the NutriBullet by Ninja is phenomenal way better made! 

I love it.

Blend all ingredients until mixed thoroughly.

You’ll need to shake it periodically to incorporate the ingredients so you can mix better. If desired, you can add a little bit of soy milk or almond milk to this.

Enjoy. What better way to show somebody you love them and care about them from the inside out!
