Here’s the only green smoothie recipe I love and make right now. I look forward to making new green smoothie recipes but it’s pretty hard because I really love and make this one every single time I’m in the mood for a green smoothie.
1 cup of chopped frozen mangoes
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup of chopped frozen pineapple
2 handfuls of organic baby spinach
8 ounces of filtered water
Feel free to add any protein, flax seeds, coconut oil or anything that would boost the nutrient power of your smoothie.
It’s delicious, and comes out smooth and frozen with the help of my Ninja blender. The Ninja blender is my second favorite kitchen appliance after my Breville juicer of course! I have tried to make many a smoothie with my regular blender and while it works it, produces a less frozen smoothie as the blades heat up. It also requires more liquid and lots of shaking/stirring in between so I don’t bother! I love and appreciate my Ninja but I look forward to the day I bring home a Vitamix. This is actually our second Ninja, we received our first one as a wedding gift and it conveniently ‘died’ at 14 months, 2 months after the warranty expired. After using a regular blender for a few weeks, I couldn’t take the mooshy smoothies and used my 20% off BedBath&Beyond coupon to bring home a new Ninja. I’m still coming for you Vitamix 🙂
