Ingredients used to make this Green Smoothie
SPINACH - Fresh baby spinach leaves give this smoothie a mild earthy flavor. If you don't want to taste the greens, consider using romaine lettuce. Want to be more adventurous? Try using Swiss chard, collard greens, bok choy, or kale.
MANGO - I always have a bag of frozen mango chunks in my freezer, so I can whip up a smoothie anytime. They keep the smoothie nice and cold with no need for ice! No mangos on hand? Feel free to substitute frozen peaches or pineapple!
BANANA - Use a small banana or half of a large banana for this recipe. Fresh or frozen, both work great! Wondering how to freeze bananas? Simply peel any ripe bananas you have on hand, cut into chunks, and store in an air-tight container until ready to use.
WATER - Yep, just plain 'ole water. 😀 You could use any type of milk or coconut water, but I'm keeping it simple.
FLAXSEED, CHIA SEEDS, and/or HEMP HEARTS - For an additional boost of nutrition add a teaspoon for some healthy omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and fiber.
To make this smoothie, simply add all of the above ingredients in the order listed above into a blender. Blend for one minute or until smooth, and then serve immediately. I hope you love this recipe as much as I do! You may also want to try my Banana Nut Smoothie which is also fantastic!
Mmm, mmm, good!
