Hey there! Are ya wondering why anyone would be excited to drink something as green as this? I hear ya— I’ve been right where you are (and so have over a million others who’ve given this recipe a chance). When I created this beginner friendly green smoothie recipe…it changed my life and fueled my passions. It was love at first sip for me, my two kids and over million others who were scared of spinach until they tried this recipe.
For some reason, I feel responsible for helping you see the good in all this green. So stick with me. Green smoothies can be very simple and very yummy…yes, green can become a simple healthy habit that you actually look forward to! Heck, drinking this daily green smoothie is what helped me lose the post baby weight, run a few marathons and even complete my first 100km race as well. What we eat can truly transform our bodies and our lives in powerful ways.
If you want to hear about my journey and what I mean when I say this, head on over to my bio page.

Not sure if your blender can handle the greens? I’ve created The Ultimate Blender Guide and reviewed countless blenders to find the best ones for green smoothies. The key is to get rid of leafy chunks, blend quickly and provide tons of value for the price. Hint: not all of them cost $400+. 🙂
The Beginner’s Luck Green Smoothie is a great beginner friendly green smoothie recipe. It’s full of iron, potassium and vitamins galore— AND tastes like a tropical treat from all the island fruit. Not a fan of bananas? Swap it for 1/4 avocado or add another 1/2 cup mango to the recipe.
- 1 cup spinach (fresh)
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup pineapple*
- 1/2 cup mango*
- 1 banana (peeled)
- Tightly pack spinach in a measuring cup.
- Add spinach to blender with water. Blend together until all chunks are gone. (Should resemble green water when blended well).
- Add pineapple, mango and banana to blender. I like to use frozen pineapple and mangos to chill the smoothie down and save time cutting and prepping. It’s a win-win!
- Blend all together until smooth and creamy. Depending on your blender, this could take as little as 30 seconds or as long as 2 minutes.
- Pour into a glass and serve immediately.
- You can also store the smoothie in the fridge with a lid until ready to drink.
