Simple Spinach Mango Smoothie
Smoothies were my family’s first step into eating a primarily whole food diet. True story! I was wildly intimidated by just about every other recipe I found at the time and just needed a simple place to start getting more veggies into us without making life more complicated.
But making an easy green smoothie first thing in the morning? Now that I could do! And once we found that 1) we enjoyed the smoothies 2) we loved how adding more fruits and veggies into our lives made us feel….we were hooked and moved onto more veggie-loaded recipes!
I still advocate for starting out with smoothies when someone asks me where to start adding more veggies into their life…especially when they have kids. Smoothies are simple, delicious and can really help kids love their greens!
This simple spinach mango smoothie was a breakfast regular when our smoothie-lovin’ days started and is still a family favorite to this day!
Kitchen gear used for this spinach mango smoothie…
Like I said, green smoothies were one of the first veggie-loaded recipes I made for my family….long before my kitchen became stocked with fancy kitchen gear. So to make and enjoy a healthy smoothie, you truly don’t need anything beyond a blender. And the blender doesn’t have to high speed like mine (see the recipe instructions for how to blend it in non-high speed blenders).
With that said, people often ask what gear, glasses and such I use. So if you are wondering, here are the things that were used in making (and enjoying) this simple spinach mango smoothie:

- Add yogurt. Up the creaminess of this awesome spinach mango smoothie and toss in your favorite yogurt.
- Add some nut butter. This will add some healthy fat to the smoothie and help it to really fill your family up and keep them going longer.
- Toss in some chia seeds or ground flax for a boost of nutrients!
- Freeze the smoothie into popsicles for a veggie-loaded dessert that will dazzle the kids.
- Add a peeled orange to the blender. I love the flavor oranges give to green smoothies and it really pairs well with the banana and mango in this blend.
- Enjoy it as a smoothie bowl. Pour it into a bowl and top it with some granola!
