I love the tang a lime adds to food. And this smoothie is no exception. It just makes the whole thing a lot more refreshing, not to mention tropical.

Remember to add the grated zest from the lime skin, too, to get the full benefit of the fruit. The limonene found in the skin promotes weight loss, aids digestion, reduces acid reflux, relieves symptoms of depression, has anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties, inhibits cancer cell growth and stimulates the immune system.

Throw in the mint, mango, spinach and banana and you’ve got an excellent health boosting smoothie. And at only about 200 calories a serving it can slot in anywhere in your day.
