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.

    Hi, I have a Thermomix, which means the quantities normally need to be adjusted. With the recipes you provide, do I still have to adjust quantities, or are they set for a blender (rather than a juicer)?
    Thanks!

    What will happen if I add yoghurt to the drink?

      Hi Naju,

      You can definitely add yogurt to your green smoothie! Non-fat Greek yogurt is a great option when looking to add protein to your favorite recipes.

      Cheers!

      Hi Noor,

      Thanks for reaching out. Unfortunately everyone’s body is different, and therefore will react differently to adding green smoothies to their diet. While weight loss is not the #1 goal of our 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge it can be a happy accident. Our #1 goal is for you to fuel your body with fresh fruits + leafy greens. You’ll be amazed how adding this one simple habit can change the way you fuel your body, leading to life long changes in your health and wellness, and possibly your waist line.

    how many calories are in the beginner’s luck green smoothie?

    • SGS Rawkstar 9.20.2016 at 5:32 pm #

      Hi Melinda,

      We personally don’t count calories, so we don’t include them in our recipes at this time. You’ll find that when you consume more nourishing whole fruits and veggies, you will not only feel full longer, but you’ll also have lessened cravings for high-calorie, nutritionally empty foods. So in the end it balances out. But we know many people would like to have calorie info. Three great resources for tracking calories are Self Nutrition Data, and the phone apps: My Fitness Pal and Lose It.

    We are on day 2 of our green smoothie journey…I made this one on the first day and husband loved it. I was a little iffy on consistency which got better as I drank it and could be due to sub-par blending skills, but I loved the taste and it kept husband full until lunch. I do my best to eat healthy and I do not have weight issues, but I frequently crave Cokes and bad carbs in my mid-afternoon slump. I was super happy and surprised to find myself craving another one of these that afternoon instead of the usual junk. Hooray!
