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
2 bananas 


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.


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 Guys,

    This is my first time with the challenge, I tried blending a couple months ago and it was horrible, I used ginger (wow, talk about potent) anyways, I read you stated I should use and I made a delicious smoothie which I loved I did, spinach, cucumber, watermelon, apple and kale in coconut water. It was the bomb….can’t wait to see my results in the next 28 days.

    What about diabetics? I know they have to watch the amount of fruit consumed.

    What can I use if I have allergies to citrus fruits ( No pineapple, oranges, kiwi, etc..)??

    • SGS Rawkstar 6.30.2015 at 7:54 pm #

      Hi Resse,

      Allergic to citrus, try doubling up the amount of mango in our Beginner’s Luck recipe, or try adding another fruit you can enjoy, like berries or melon.

      Cheers :)
