Lean Green Juice Drink


This is a refreshing and delicious healthy drink that is easy peasy to make.  Feel free to substitute other fruits.  Sometimes I will use peaches in place of mango. This is a drink that is loaded with tons of vitamins and nutrients and this is a great way to start your day off right!  Spinach and mango's are an excellent source of vitamin A.    This drink is also a good source of vitamin K, fiber, protein, potassium,  folic acid and calcium.  Hope you enjoy!
