Hoff's Mango Raspberry Smoothie

Hoff's Mango Raspberry Smoothie
Yields: about 6 cups
dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free, soy-free, gluten-free
RawTill4 Compliant 

  • Water
  • 6 Ice Cubes
  • 1 handfuls Spinach
  • 2 Mangoes (chopped)
  • 1 pint Raspberries
  • 3-4 pitted Dates
  • 1 tbsp. Chia Seeds

  1. Add all ingredients to a high speed blender (ahem, Vitamix)
  2. Add just enough Water until there is 1/2" of ingredients uncovered
  3. Blend on high until thoroughly combined, using tamper if necessary
  4. Feel the base of the container to ensure the smoothie is not heating up (add more ice cubes if necessary)

Hoff Thoughts: Typically I like to use frozen fruit in smoothies and avoid the use of ice cubes.  There's nothing wrong with using ice cubes, especially when all the ingredients are fresh; they just don't add anything other than coldness.  Freezing leftover juice as ice cubes is an excellent way to enhance a smoothie.
