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 Donna,

      Thanks for reaching out! I personally haven’t experienced or heard members of our community experience ankle swelling. We’re green smoothie lovin’ rawkstars all right, but we’re not doctors or nutritionists. We suggest you talk with your doctor about any health concerns— I’m sure they can help you decide what is best for you and your body.

      Cheers to health + happiness!

    Hmmm….i just blended half an avocado, half lemon juice (squeezed it!), one banana, 3 kale and 3 spinach leaves (relatively large), 3 small carrots, half a cup cucumber, half zucchini and one banana…
    quite yummy…I can’t even taste cucumber, kale or any of those green veggies..
    It tastes creamy…I plan on adding some purple grapes to the other serving i have placed in the fridge tomorrow since i cannot finish it up…It made my dinner.

      Hi Kiki,

      Thank you so much for reaching out! Was this your first green smoothie?

  5. Leonette 7.7.2015 at 7:35 am #

    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.

    • SGS Rawkstar 7.7.2015 at 6:29 pm #

      Hi Leonette,

      We’re so excited to hear you’re back to blendin’ green smoothies! Your recipe sounds delicious! Blendin’ with cucumber has been my summer obsession, it’s so refreshing on a warm day!

    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 :)
