    This looks great! I’m new to green smoothies, but I am eager to try this recipe. Do you have the nutritional information?

    This so far has got to be my go to smoothie! The first time I made it my grocery store didn’t have any ripe enough mangos, so I used a white peach instead, I absolutely love it this way! Thank u for such healthy great tasting smoothie’s!

      Hey Shannon!

      We love subbing in peaches too. Either way it will be ‘oh so yummy’!

    I just made my first green smoothie, The Beginner’s Luck. It was fabulous!! Mine turned out a little weird colored because I added some blueberries but it was delicious! Even my doubtful parents said it was “not half bad” and “really good”! They will be converts eventually haha. Thanks for the recipe! :D

    This is my favorite smoothie! It is the one if was first introduced to by a friend years ago and I loved it from the first sip. It is the smoothie I recommend to anyone that wants to give green smoothies a try. Perfect name for this great combination! And usually give beginners the courage to try other combos as well.

    Just made my first Beginner’s Luck Smoothie. It tasted fabulous!! The kids wanted more – which is crazy. It was so easy to prepare, I plan to make it every morning for breakfast before the kids head out the door to school. Much better than a slice of toast!!

      RAWsome Laura! So glad you enjoyed Beginner’s Luck! :)

    Hi – am keen to start a green-smoothie journey! Just had a couple of questions… does the fruit have to be fresh? Would tinned pineapple/ peach be acceptable? Also I notice that generally a lot of green smoothies include avocado, which my husband is really allergic to so I don’t have in the house – can you suggest a good alternative? Thank you! :)

      You certainly could use canned – but I think you’ll be missing out. I personally go fresh (organic) and if I can’t get organic I get frozen.

      Avocados are in many recipes to add a creamy tecture. You can also use bananas to do the same.
