Beginner’s Luck Green Smoothie
2 cups spinach, fresh (tightly packed)
2 cups water
1 cup mango
1 cup pineapple
TIP #1: Remember to get the smoothest smoothie and to avoid leafy chunks, blend your greens and liquid first, then add the remaining fruits. Cheers!
TIP #2: Use at least one frozen fruit to make the green smoothie cold.
TIP #3: If you aren’t a big fan of bananas, feel free to substitue for another fruit. You can even freeze the bananas first to reduce the flavor and also add some extra chill to your smoothie.
