Yummy Mango Smoothie

For the past two years I have dedicated one week to do a cleanse. I followed the cleanse from the book Clean by Alejandro Junger. This one week is free of anything that could negativeley impact you body, so no sugar, wheat, milk, anything processed, only select meats and seasonings. Basically you eat veggies and fruit along with a few other grains (brown rice, quinoa). He suggests 3 weeks for the cleanse, but I have only ever done one week at a time. It is so good for your body to flush out the bad and start fresh! While on the cleanse, each morning you drink a smoothie (or shake whichever you want to call it). But even when you are not on a cleanse the shakes can be great for a breakfast or a mid morning snack. This recipe is not from the book, but one I came up with after trying several different combinations. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Mango Smoothie

1 mango, peeled and chopped
5 strawberries, sliced
1 tsp raw honey (you may need more depending on the sweetness of your fruit)
1/2 cup almond milk (or coconut milk, or rice milk...etc.)
4/5 ice cubes

Blend all ingredients in a blender or our favorite The Magic Bullet. Enjoy! :)
