Mango, Kale, Avocado, Cucumber Green Smoothie

I found some champagne mangos on sale at the store this week, and I thought they would be a great addition to a smoothie. I loved using kale as a super hearty and healthy base for the smoothie I made yesterday, and I loved the creaminess that the avocado added, so I used those ingredients again, too. This time, I also added some cooling cucumber and some parsley. The addition of ice made it much better this time around. I think I’ll use this method from now on. It was just cold enough without being too much like a shake. I really enjoyed this smoothie! It makes about a glass and a half for me, which is perfect since my son sucks down about 1/3 of it haha!
