A simple green smoothie recipe with lots of spinach! Adding spinach to a smoothie is a great way to get a lot of your daily greens in one go. It doesn’t have a strong flavor, but it’s packed with loads of nutritional value! Kale has a stronger flavor, but would still be a great substitute.
I haven’t tried this recipe in a regular blender, but it should work fine as long as the blender can blend the frozen fruit. It also might not grind up the spinach as finely, but it should taste the same.
Fresh mango would also be great in this recipe, but I always have frozen on hand. Frozen produce keeps much longer and there’s no peeling or chopping involved. It's also just as nutritious as fresh fruit. If you do use fresh mango I recommend adding ice to chill the smoothie.
I prefer to use a very ripe (brown spotted) banana because it helps the mango add sweetness to cover up the spinach. Which also helps to get kids to enjoy the smoothie too! It's a healthy treat for an afternoon snack, but it would work well as a light breakfast too.
I hope you enjoy this simple green smoothie recipe!
