Spinach Mango Smoothie

My kids and I have this for breakfast often. We call it our "green drink" and they get so excited when I make it! It's the only way they'll eat spinach. This is a silky smooth, very healthy, energizing drink! (You've got to be a little adventurous though; some people just can't get past the idea of a smoothie being green!)

Ready In:
5mins

Units:

ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach leaves, washed
  • 1 ripe mango
  • 14 - 12 cup orange juice

directions

  • Peel and slice mango. Combine with spinach and orange juice in VitaMix blender on high for 1 minute. Enjoy your "green drink!".
  • NOTES: For a thick smoothie, use 1/4 cup orange juice. To thin, just add a little more to get the consistency you like. Also, you do need to use a ripe mango. A not-quite-ripe firm one will not yield a very smooth smoothie!

    Delish! I was making this for myself so I used 1 cup spinach, 1 cup frozen mango chunks, 3/4 cup Trop 50 orange juice, 1 packet of Splenda and ice. Fantastic!

    This is delicious and fresh. I used freshly squeezed orange juice to keep this raw and frozen mango plus the baby spinach of course. Yum, yum, yum. I will make this again.

    An excellent smoothie. I added roughly 1/2 cup almond milk plus a splash of orange juice and 1 cup of ice. I like my smoothies thicker and colder. My husband, who is squeamish about anything that looks green, loved the smoothie (I told him afterwards it had spinach.) Thank you for the recipe!

    Wonderful green smoothie. Feel energized after drinking! I only had frozen mango which worked just fine for this one!

    I had a bunch of ceylon spinach, an orange and a mango so this recipe caught my eye. I just peeled the orange and did not bother squeezing it. The smoothie was a bit thick so I just added a little water and some ice. The mango does need to be ripe to get the sweetness to counteract any bitterness coming from the spinach. Great recipe especially if you don't want to cook and you also need to get your quota of greens in for the day.
