(LFRV) This is a quick delicious way to get some greens in and ensure all the iron is absorbed properly thanks to the Vit C in the mangoes. The spinach amount is a starting point and you can always increase it if your tastebuds will allow. You can also switch the water out for coconut water if that's something you do. ENJOY!
- 2 ripe mangoes, peeled and diced
- 2 cups spinach (start with less if new to green smoothies)
- 1 -2 cup water or 1 -2 cup coconut water
- Place all ingredients in blender and mix until smooth. Add water or coconut water according to your desired consistency. Pour & serve!
WOW, just wow!!!! I normally dont drink these kind of shakes, but the ingredients made me curious and as Im trying to eat more healthy yet satisfying, I thought Id give this a go. And Im so happy I did! The smoothie is thick, sweet, fruity and just plain yummy!
I made half the recipe for lunch for myself which yielded 2 tall glasses full of thick puree.
I tripled the spinach as I needed to use up a bag and didnt even really taste it. Maybe mine was very mild or my mango (organic) was very bold in flavour. Anyway, I loved this!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this tasty treat with us, Mindy!

Delicious. And I thought I don't like spinach in my smoothies! Fresh mango makes it sweet as it was more spinachy tasting with frozen mango but still do able. I use baby spinach and recommend it for its easier digestion. I use water but am yearning to try this with coconut water sometime. I will be making this again insha Allah (God willing).
