I love a good green smoothie. As an avid smoothie lover from way back, being able to pack them with good-for-me-greens like spinach, kale or avocado makes me feel good about sipping on one for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
As the temps start to creep up into the 90's here in Arizona, I've been experimenting and trying new combinations recently. I've been getting many requests from my nut-free readers for drinks and eats that don't contain nut milks or nut butters, but that can still pack a mean protein punch, so I've whipped up something special for you guys and gals!
Many of my vegan readers and clients enjoy the protein content of soy and the health benefits it can offer. And while I believe in enjoying everything healthy in moderation if well tolerated, even my carnivorous friends can enjoy the benefits of this little green bean. Soy has a controversial reputation in many circles, and people always want to know my advice... it's simply this, speak to your doctor about your restrictions, listen to your body and always make sure to look for soy sourced from Non-GMO sources, such as Silk as there are many benefits to enjoying this power packed food source.
April is National Soyfoods Month, so I thought it would be fitting to celebrate it with this lean and mean Mango + Greens smoothie that is so silky smooth, so decadent and packed with nutrients.

With Silk's Soy Milk yogurt alternative being so versatile, you can use it in many recipes to not only get a protein boost, but to give your tummy that much needed healthy bacteria. Dairy-free yogurts that include live active cultures, along with a clean, doctor recommended probiotic, are staples in my diet. Dairy-free yogurt alternatives, such as Silk Soy, are also amazing sources of calcium and Vitamin D, which are super important right now, especially as a I grow our little Baby P.
Below is the simple recipe, I would love to hear your favorite smoothie recipes or what you thought of this green treat that gives a sweet over earthy flavor, which makes it a hit with the kiddos too!

You can also pair Silk soy yogurt alternative with a homemade granola, a top pancakes or in one of my many other smoothie recipes if this one doesn't tickle your fancy.

Nosh & Nurture was born of this journey I am on to better the health of myself, my family and those around me. What started as a simple compilation of recipes has grown to a all-around lifestyle journal with ways to incorporate organic products into your home, pantry and beauty cabinet. I also include stories on pregnancy, new motherhood, travel, Proverbs 31 marriage, and spiritual health, as I am a Christian who couldn't do any of this without my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.

All recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free with a lot of soy-free, grain-free, sugar-free options.
