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’ve become interested in green smoothies because my doctor tells me I have a fatty liver and need to eat a lot less meat. However, I wonder if the smoothies can be beneficial to me because I’ve had a sleeve gastrectomy for weight loss and my stomach doesn’t hold very much, so I can’t drink much of a smoothie at one time. I’ve gained some weight again a few years since my surgery from eating too much of the wrong types of food. Another concern is that I take a water pill each day, along with potassium and other medications. Will the efficacy of these medications be affected by the green smoothie?

      Hi Valerie!

      Thanks so much for reaching out. Welcome to our community!

      Since we are not health care professionals, we recommend speaking with your doctor to determine if green smoothies are a good choice for you at this time. Everybody is so different, and they will be better equipped to help you decide what is best for you, personally :).

      Hi Karri!

      Thanks for reaching out! We personally don’t smoothies as part of a cleanse or restrictive diet :). We usually have one serving of green smoothie a day (2 cups or 16oz), but still consume regular meals. If you’d like, you can use your green smoothie as a meal replacement for up to two meals per day. Just be sure to add some healthy fat + protein! Here are some of our favorite combos :).

    As an extreme sportman (well at 51 I think that I am), after a 2 hour run, can I trow in 2 spoons of protein powder in my smoothie? BTW, great work you are doing, keep it up. Its making me younger!!

    Thank you for this, you really made me happy. I made smoothies by myself before but I think with group it’ll be easier because I have a lot of questions to ask.
    Thanks once more, lots of love!
