Smoothie Shop

The McGhee family knows smoothies.  I talk all the time about how my boy minis want to grow up and work at a smoothie shop.  My oldest mini has a logo already drawn out, along with floor plans of his shop and we are working on recipes.  The thing my minis are adamant about is that their smoothie shop will be whole ingredients.  No nasty processed "smoothie mix" for them.  The downside to this is my mini's smoothies will cost you a few bucks, the upside is....well, you'll live longer and healthier!

Our latest smoothie obsession is a raspberry mango smoothie.

Mini McGhee's someday-we'll-make-money-off-of these raspberry mango smoothie

  • 2 cups mango (they use one cup frozen, one cup fresh)
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1 frozen banana
  • chopped ginger (add according to your taste, maybe 1-2 tbsp)
  • 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 4 tbsp orange juice
  • 1 scoop protein powder (unflavored)
  • 1-2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds (optional, it changed the texture of the smoothie completely so be prepared)
1.  Blend all ingredients.  Enjoy while chatting with your minis about their smoothie shop.
