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.

    I’m not a mango or pineapple fan what could I substitute these fruits with ?

      Hi Ashley,

      Not a fan of mango + pineapple, no worries! Papaya + kiwi are great replacements for mango. And grapefruit + orange are great replacements for pineapple!

      Cheers :)
