Beginner’s Luck Green Smoothie
Makes 32 oz | Serves 2
2 cups spinach, fresh (tightly packed)
2 cups water
1 cup mango
1 cup pineapple
*Use at least one frozen fruit to chill your smoothie.
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.
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.
