Mango Avocado Smoothie

Smooth avocado and sweet mango pair perfectly in this smoothie

The Vitamin Shoppe is excited to introduce AppeFIT™, an all-natural appetite and craving controller and the perfect addition to your morning smoothie.

AppeFIT™ may help readers reduce the urge for an 11 AM hunger snack, providing a full feeling that lasts until lunch! Derived from an all-natural spinach extract known as Appethyl, the benefits of AppeFIT™ include:
- 5-hour fullness that reduces hunger and cravings
- Supports your willpower to maintain a healthy diet!

Proven effective with a study conducted by Pennington Biomedical Research Center, Appethyl helps to slow fat digestion, in turn increasing the body's production of hormones that lead to a satisfied feeling.

AppeFIT™ is debuting as part of the Vitamin Shoppe’s NEXT STEP® line of weight management products:
- Available as of mid-April at VitaminShoppe.com and stores nationwide
- Two flavors: Apple Punch and Mixed Berry

Mango Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Mango Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
