Such a variety of colors and flavors!

This smoothie is refreshing, healthy, and easy to make.  It doesn’t get much better than that!  Have it for breakfast or as a mid-day snack.  You can even make it and save it in the refrigerator for later! I found it especially tasty with an extra squirt of lime.  The recipe gets our seal of approval here at Park Avenue Nutrition.


1 Cup Mango

½ Cup Pineapple

½ Lime

½ Cup Almond Milk

2 Mint Sprigs

1 Tbsp Cocoa

 Place all ingredients in a blender until desired consistency is reached and enjoy!

After a while, I became dizzy, my heart was pounding so hard and my hands were shaking. That was the last time I ever put an energizing drink in my mouth. Who knows what would happen if I drank the whole bottle!

Did anyone ever have the same experience? How does your body feel after you drink an energy drink in the morning?
