Try This: Mango Green Smoothies

The best mango green smoothie ever! (The secret is to use coconut milk and add a splash of OJ)

Marina shared her favorite mango green smoothie recipe the other day and I dreamed about it for a week straight. I finally got to the store and stocked up on frozen mango so I could make these for breakfast yesterday.

They were everything I knew they would be and more, just delicious. I’m thinking of making another one right now!

Mango Green Smoothies

Slightly Adapted from Yummy Mummy Kitchen (we just adjust to our tastes and family size)

Makes 4-5 smoothies

– 1 to 2 cup(s) Coconut Milk

– several handfuls of spinach

– 1/2 bag of frozen pineapple (fresh is even better!)

– 1/2 bag of frozen mango

– Drizzle of Honey (Optional)

– Splash of OJ (optional)

Blend coconut milk and spinach first in order to get that beautiful green smoothie look you want and not bits and pieces of spinach that get stuck in your teeth! Then add fruit and blend again until you reach your desired consistency. Pour and serve immediately.

Note: Our new favorite is Almond Coconut milk, I love the slight tropical vibe it gives this green goodness. Sometimes I also add a splash of OJ to amp up the citrus flavor

Adding this to our breakfast rotation, and searching for more green smoothie recipes to try.

Tell me what’s in it, I’d love to try it next.

    My favorite is a green smoothie too. I mix some ice, a banana, 1/2 cup of plain whole milk greek yogurt, 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk (any would work), a tablespoon of peanut butter, and as much spinach as I can cram into the blender. It tastes like dessert :) My kids love it, my husband loves it. It’s a win all around :)

    Definitely going to give that a try as it looks delicious and I have all of the necessary kitchen gizmos. We love smoothies and fresh home made juices in this house.
    Thank you for adding me on G+, it is how I navigated over to here :-)

      oh my goodness Liska! Thanks so much for telling me you found me through G+ … its such a foreign territory to me and I usually think its not doing much for me … but if it helped us find each other, than I am willing to keep trying! What are some of yoru families favorite juices? We’re itching in to that realm, but slowly so far our favorite is carrot, orange & grapefruit.
