Beginner’s Luck Green Smoothie


Makes 32 oz | Serves 2

Ingredients
2 cups spinach, fresh (tightly packed)
2 cups water
1 cup mango
1 cup pineapple
2 bananas 

 

Directions
Tightly pack your leafy greens into a measuring cup and toss into blender. Add water and blend together until all leafy chunks are gone. Next add in mango, pineapple and bananas and blend again.

 

Tips
1. Use at least one frozen fruit to chill your smoothie.
2. If you aren’t a big fan of bananas, feel free to substitute with another fruit, like extra mangos. You can even freeze the bananas first to reduce the flavor and also add some extra chill to your smoothie.

    I’m not sure if I can do this after all… For some reason my body is rejecting meats and its tiring to eat solid foods… so smoothies have been great… but now I don’t have much money and I’m not sure how I can budget all these different ingredients… Its starting to seem more and more impossible for me…

    Don’t I have to drink like 3 a day? Its like 3 meals a day right? I dunno.. It seems like a lot to buy and impossible under a budget…

      Hey Ed.

      Thanks so much for the comment, Ed. Our intention is not for you to drink green smoothies three times a day. Our smoothie recipes make about 4-5 cups (32oz – 40oz). Jadah drinks at least 2 cups (16 oz) everyday in the morning as a breakfast meal replacement. Jen drinks hers for lunch or sometimes as a mid morning snack Since green smoothies are full of fiber, they keep us both full for a while. If either of us needs afternoon pick-me-ups, we have been known to make another green smoothie later in the day instead of drinking a caffeinated beverage. If you have any concerns about your health I would suggest consulting your healthcare provider, they will know you best, and what is best for you.

      Hi Ed,

      I’m not a doctor but I can definitely say that if your body is rejecting solid foods, you should go see one. I hope you can get some good medical advice and return to a good health.

    I actually made the smoothie and substituted one banana with a half of avocado!

      Sounds great, Kim! How was it?

  5. Janet 9.5.2014 at 6:05 am #

    Yes I did and I loved it. Was a little nervous at first because I usually use yogurt.

    I just made my first beginners luck smoothie. It’s not bad. I am used to using 0 fat vanilla yogurt along with unsweetened almond milk in my smoothies so I was a little nervous about the taste. Looking forward to tomorrow.

      Hey Janet!

      • Janet 9.2.2014 at 8:51 am #

    Do I give up coffee?

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 9.1.2014 at 6:25 am #

      Hey Louise.

      For the 30-Day Challenge you don’t have to, but for the Fresh Start Cleanse we do ask that you give up coffee for the 21-Days. Our smoothie recipes make about 4-5 cups (32oz – 40oz). Jadah drinks at least 2 cups (16 oz) everyday in the morning as a breakfast meal replacement. Jen drinks hers for lunch or sometimes as a mid morning snack Since green smoothies are full of fiber, they keep us both full for a while. If either of us needs afternoon pick-me-ups, we have been known to make another green smoothie later in the day instead of drinking a caffeinated beverage.

    Any idea what concussion I should try for a flat belly and losing weight. I am over 55 and am finding it hard to lose weight in spite of being very active.
