Healthy meals still have to taste good so that we can enjoy their benefits in the long run without falling back to less beneficial food decisions. So, what should we do with those bitter greens that are bursting with healing power but might be just too strong in their flavour for a tasty dinner salad? Especially if you are not used to bitter foods, greens like arugula can be tough on your taste buds. My trick – blend them up with sweet fruits in colourful mixtures such as this arugula-mango smoothie. This way we can smooth out their bitterness and still keep our smoothie exciting.
Arugula-Mango Smoothie Recipe
– 4 ripe bananas
– 1 mango
– 1/2 cup raspberries
– 1/2 cup arugula
This recipe is perfectly balanced in flavours with the sweetness of the mango, the light sourness of the raspberries and a hint of the pungent arugula. If you use frozen raspberries or mango, the smoothie is still a bit cold when eating which can be really delicious. The bananas should be very ripe, so that you get the maximum creaminess into your smoothie.
Healing powers for skin, thyroid, liver and more
Due to Anthony William (Medical Medium), arugula is an all-round talent in healing and even if you are not challenged by a certain health condition you can benefit from this nutritious plant.

I hope this is motivation enough for you to dive into your own arugula smoothie very soon.
