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 there,
    So happy to have found your site and now I am on the bandwagon making green smoothies every day.
    Here is my dilemma. I travel a lot for business and I am wondering how I can stay on this program away from home. Sometimes it is diffiicult to find a juice bar and they can be very expensive.
    Is there a blender that one can easily travel with? Or other tips?
    Thanks, Kari McLay

      There’s a number of small travel blenders, or you could use an immersion hand blender. The Oster My Blend is awfully cute (other brands have ones like it), although I haven’t tried it. The top turns into a travel cup. Try searching “travel blender”. I’d use a thin bendy cutting board too to keep things light.

      Hi Kari,

      Welcome! We’re so excited you found us in this busy internet world. A stick or compact blender is perfect for traveling, they’re small which is perfect for your suitcase, but can offer some major blendin’ power! I personally love my NutriBullet + it will be in my suitcase when I fly out to visit family next week!

      Here are a few of our favorites…

      Another option is pre-blending + freezing your green smoothies, then simply thaw them in the fridge overnight when you’re ready to enjoy!

      Hope this tips help, Kari! Reach out with questions, ANYTIME! :)
