Leafy greens to use in a smoothie

The essence of a green smoothie is fruit and leafy greens. Leafy greens can range from spinach, kale, chard, bok choy, etc. The health benefits of adding leafy greens to your smoothie is that it adds extra phytonutrients and fiber, slowing down the absorption of sugars into your body.

My favorite greens are baby spinach because it’s mild in taste and still allows all the fruit to shine. It’s also easy to find all year round and affordable.

How to make a green smoothie

All you need to make a tasty green smoothie is a blender, fruit and leafy greens. The right ratio of leafy greens to fruit makes it sweet as you reap all the health benefits of a green smoothie. The key is to use recipes that actually taste good and follow my simple tips below.

  1. Blend 1 cup of spinach, or another leafy greens of your choice, in a blender.
  2. Add 1 cup of liquid and blend well (until all leafy chunks are gone).
  3. Toss in fruit, such as frozen mango, pineapple and bananas in the blender.
  4. Next, blend again until smooth and creamy.
  5. Serve smoothie immediately for maximum nourishment.

Are smoothies really good for you?

Smoothies are typically made with fruit and water (or a dairy base), which is high in sugar and can cause inflammation. A green smoothie, on the other hand, is made with fruit, water (or a plant-based liquid) and leafy greens. A green smoothie can taste just as good as a regular smoothie, yet the health results are MUCH better for you.

Heck, drinking this daily smoothie is what helped me get the body and energy to do some incredible things like ran 47 miles of the Grand Canyon, rode motorcycles through Morocco, published two best-selling recipe books and created a backyard garden for my kids.

This daily habit has kept my kids healthy when we didn’t have health insurance, energized us in between school and sports and nourished us so we don’t need to take vitamins.

Why drink a Spinach Smoothie

What we eat can truly transform our bodies and our lives in powerful ways. Especially with this smoothie recipe as I’ve seen in the lives of so many of my friends, family and community online. Blending spinach into a fruit smoothie is a great way to boost your immune system, AND naturally energize you.

This recipe is full of iron, potassium and vitamins galore— and tastes like a tropical treat from all the island fruit. Yet the best part is how simple and quick it is to make! You only need 4 ingredient and all of them can be found at your local grocery store (and don’t cost a fortune either!). As I say all the time— I’m all for making healthy eating affordable so it’s sustainable.

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • fresh spinach
  • frozen pineapple
  • frozen mango
  • fresh banana

Can you taste spinach in the smoothie?

You wouldn’t be the first to look at this recipe and say “no way!” Green! Spinach! Yuck! Yet don’t walk away! This bright green gem will actually delight your taste buds. You’ll even have an extra pep in your step when you realize how great you feel!

Even kids LOVE this green smoothie recipe! I started blending this smoothie in my daughter Clare’s kindergarten class four years ago. Now every year, I visit her school and the kids look forward to me making this again. That’s how delicious this recipe is!

To reiterate, I really encourage you to dive into the world of green smoothies and see just how delicious healthy tastes.

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+. 🙂 In fact, check out this special deal that Vitamix and I have where you can get my favorite blender for less than $300 (including FREE shipping). Just add this blender to your cart and head to checkout to see the secret pricing!

5 Blending Tips to get Started

  1. Follow the 60/40 formula. When you’re making your first few green smoothies, don’t just throw things in the blender. Chances are, it’ll taste nasty if you wing it right out of the gate. To save you a few smoothie-fails, bust out those cute lil’ measuring cups learn how to make your own green smoothie.
  2. Blend in stages to avoid leafy chunks. Chewing your green smoothie is no fun! To get a “smooth” green smoothie experience, blend up your leafy greens and liquid-base first. Add your remaining fruits and blend again.
  3. Ditch the ice and freeze some fruits. Want your green smoothie to be extra chilly? Freeze your favorite fruits like ripe bananas, grapes, pineapple or berries. You can also freeze your leafy greens in a freezer-safe bag. Just make sure to add your frozen greens straight to the blender.
  4. Use raw natural sweeteners. Add naturally sweet fruits to any smoothie that tastes bitter or a bit too “green.” My favorite naturally sweet fruits are bananas, mango, apples, pears or pitted dates.
  5. Make smoothies ahead for the perfect fast food. Life is crazy busy— especially in the morning. That’s why we think green smoothies are the healthiest fast food for people who are constantly on the go. You can prep your green smoothies and blend the night before and store it in your fridge (up to 2 days).

  1. Molly says:

    So good! You can’t taste the spinach at all.

  2. Erin Nesbitt says:

    Can I use frozen spinach instead?

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Hey Erin! You can def use frozen spinach, just check the label to make sure it contains just spinach and no salt, preservatives, or other yucky additives. 🙂

  3. Holly Scoates says:

    Delicious! (Did it with 1/2 avocado instead of the banana) So good that my 13-year old son made one for himself and now my picky eater has had all kinds of good greenage today!

  4. Elle says:

    Is it healthy to use OJ instead of water to add some Vitamin D and up the Vitamin C?

  5. Gail says:

    Could you please let us know how much vitamin A is supplied? Thanks.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Gail, the amount of vitamin A in one serving of this smoothie is 191% DV based on a 2,000 calorie diet. If you need the exact amount of mg, I believe there are websites and apps that will help you find that information. 🙂

  6. Ashley Shabez says:

    I need to get more greens in my diet. I grabbed the spinach and threw it in the smoothie and added the fruit & water. This is delicious and I would definitely make it again!

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Woo hoo, Ashley!! If you liked this smoothie, you should def give our free 7-day green smoothie challenge a go. 😀

  7. Susan says:

    I just used the Vitamix blender link you have posted above. There is no Vitamix blender on that page for under 300.00. Yours is listed for 500.00.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Hi Susan! Our apologies, that’s an old deal that is no longer valid. But stay tuned because we love partnering with Vitamix and often do promotions with them! If you are looking to order a blender sooner rather than later, I suggest checking out their page of Certified Reconditioned blenders. They are still amazing Vitamix machines but at a reduced price. Here’s the link: https://www.vitamix.com/us/en_us/shop/certified-reconditioned-series. 🙂

  8. Adrianne says:

    Is this enough for breakfast? What are your thoughts on having fat/protein in a smoothie? I have tried using protein powders but they upset my stomach.

  9. Amber Moberg says:

    Starting out with smoothies I used to drink this one all.the.time! It is seriously so good and so refreshing!

  10. Deborah K narron says:

    I have read most fruit & veggies don’t mix with the exception of appls & pears. What’s your opinion about that? Thanks.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Hey Deborah. I believe you’re referring to the food combining philosophy. To be perfectly clear, there is absolutely no scientific basis for adopting rules about food combining. In fact, the food combining hypothesis was thoroughly debunked almost 80 years ago, there is absolutely zero scientific evidence to support it, and no credible scientists or doctors support food combining today.

      Supporters of the food combining approach to eating believe that fruit should only be eaten on its own and on an empty stomach. Furthermore, they promote eating food groups separately to help optimize digestion rather than confuse your digestive system. But your digestive system isn’t easily confused. In fact, it’s efficient and powerful, and it isn’t necessary to eat fruits on their own or to avoid eating fruits and vegetables together.

      When you eat, your digestive system sends out all types of enzymes at once into your stomach and small intestine. It doesn’t send out specific enzymes that digest only fruits or just vegetables. All of the enzymes and stomach acid do a good job of working together to break down whatever food is eaten.

      The bottom line is: Your digestive system can handle different types of foods at once. The most important thing is to make sure you’re eating enough fruits and vegetables to get all the nutrients you need.

  11. Zen says:

    Hi what would you suggest I add if I don’t have any mango?

  12. Aislinn Walker says:

    Super easy and delicious! I added a protein powder for an after workout smoothie!

  13. Nora Long says:

    This was a great introduction to the world of green smoothies, looking forward to a whole new adventure each new day.

  14. Karen says:

    Very tasty although I did tweak it a bit with additional spinach and used 4 Vitamin C booster cubes and less pineapple and mango. When I made my booster cubes I couldn’t get papaya so I used yellow bell pepper. The bell pepper adds a small bit of savory to the smoothie!

  15. Carly says:

    OK you literally just saved my green smoothie career!! I just thought my blender wasn’t strong enough to blend greens, little did I know the order of blending makes all the difference! Thank you for that invaluable tip!

  16. Holly P. says:

    This is our all-time favorite smoothie! So sweet and simple!

  17. Trudy Richardson says:

    Very tasty. I liked the combination of the pineapple, mango, and banana. I drank it down quickly.

  18. Tonya Lovelace says:

    This was a really good smoothie that I will make a lot.

  19. M. Royce says:

    51.2grams of carbohydrates is crazy! I think Americans like sugar too much and that’s the problem. If you want to make a smoothie and lose weight I can’t beleive you’d do it with all that sugar, natural or not. In fact, I think that much sugar everyday could put on weight! If you want high nutrient content, but low sugar, try frozen blueberries and if you want things a little sweeter try adding some raspberries or pineapple, but only a small amount. I love my Vitamix and make a smoothie for breakfast everyday so maybe my perspective is different.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Many of us in the SGS community love drinking a green smoothie every day. The best thing about our smoothie recipes is you can tweak them to fit your needs. This is a “beginner” smoothie in that is has spinach (a mild-tasting leafy green) and tropical fruits- flavor profiles many people enjoy. It’s meant to introduce folks to the wonderful world of green smoothies and often, after drinking green smoothies for a while, they will increase the amount of leafy greens + veggies and decrease the amount of fruit when making their smoothies. We also offer many recipes using low-glycemic fruits for those who have concerns about blood sugar levels and the like.

  20. Dee-Ann says:

    This smoothie was amazing! It was perfectly blended into this creamy, smooth deliciousness! I am so glad I came across your challenge. It is helping me to get back on track with my nutrition and as a bonus I’m using my Vitamix more!

  21. Jessi Scott-Angyal says:

    FaceTime making this! I was wondering do you remove the stems off the spinach? Also do you use canned or fresh pineapples before freezing it? Used canned pineapples then froze it into chunks

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      You don’t have to remove the stems from spinach but I’d recommend removing the stems from kale when you use that in a smoothie. And we prefer to use either fresh or frozen pineapple as canned pineapple often contains added sugars and the bromelain (responsible for the anti-inflammatory properties in pineapple) is neutralized during the canning process.

  22. Laura Jankowski says:

    This smoothies was really good. I wanted another one but didn’t have time to make it. So tonight I will make it leaving out the mango and using a lemon. That will be my nightcap. I like to be in these challenges, they are fun.

  23. Sara says:

    This recipe is out of this world amazing!!!! It was super easy to make and so refreshing!! I got my hubby to try it and at first he was like ‘ugh..it’s green! I’m not going to like it!’. I made him try a sip and then he said…’um this is delicious! Can you please make me my own?!’. Honestly best smoothie ever!!!!! It will not disappoint!

  24. Julie says:

    Very quick, easy, and delicious! Sometimes I like to add some chia seeds and cinnamon to this for a little extra fiber and zip.

  25. Megan says:

    Very delicious ! Smoothies are how I start my mornings and as a Mom of three young boys I need a good kick start. This recipe is going to be added to my favorites.

  26. Fatima says:

    Loved it! My all time fav and go to smoothie! Easy to make and tastes great!

  27. Paula says:

    Loved it! Have to sub kale for spinach due to food sensitivities.

  28. Bonnie Primm says:

    This Smoothie is DELICIOUS!!! I’ve never had one taste this good! I’ve attempted in the past and they weren’t tasty at all. I could drink this smoothie every day and never grow tired of it because it’s just that good!!!

  29. Cristina Ribeiro says:

    Refreshing

  30. Caitlin says:

    Delicious!! A perfect way to get both a good meal and your vitamins in. I’m a generally picky eater, but I loved this recipe!

  31. Dora Suarez says:

    I love this blend, it really is possibly the best green smoothie ever. Today I boosted mine with avocado and it makes for such a creamy and smooth consistency. So delicious I may have to make it again for my afternoon snack.

  32. Sarah says:

    This really is my favorite green smoothie!! If this is the only green smoothie you ever drink, you won’t be disappointed!!

  33. Anne Morrison says:

    What about the high sugar in the resize from the fruit
    Is that not bad for you?
    Thanks for reply
    Anne

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Hey Anne! If you don’t want as much natural sugar in your smoothies, you can flip the ratio of greens to fruit. So you could use 2 cups of spinach, 1/4 cup each of pineapple and mango, and half a banana. Another way to make smoothies with less sugar is to use low-glycemic fruits. You can read about that here–> Low Sugar Fruits for Smoothies. Happy blending!

  34. Njideka samuel says:

    I have a quick question to ask: is it healthy to take the smoothies 3times daily?

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      It’s not unhealthy but three is a lot of smoothies in one day. 🙂 I generally drink a smoothie for breakfast and maybe one for lunch or an afternoon snack, so 1-2 a day. If you’re looking to use them as meal replacements, you’ll def want to add a healthy fat + a plant-based protein. This post can help you with that-> Turn Your Green Smoothie Into a Meal!

  35. Joe OConnor says:

    Do you have just one a day?

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Hi Joe! Yes, most of us drink one green smoothie a day. Some folks will have one for breakfast and a second one for lunch, dinner, or a snack. It’s really up to you + your personal preference. 🙂

  36. This looks so refreshing and delicious. Very healthy

  37. Catherine lennon says:

    Scared of the green smoothies this was the perfect starter !!! My curious son who tries nothing new tastes it and loved it !!!
    So so delicious can’t wait for more refreshing treats ❤️

  38. Petra says:

    Tasty!

  39. Catherine Lennon says:

    OMG this has to be one of my favourites !
    My first ever green smoothie and now I can see why people are hooked !!! Cannot taste leafy greens at all , so so delicious ❤️

  40. Leah Frisosky says:

    Followed the recipe but also added a few scoops of protein! So yummy and kept me feeling full. The spinach adds great flavor to the smoothie! And if you blend it up before adding the fruit like she suggests, you don’t have any chewy pieces in it.

  41. Jill says:

    Not a huge mango fan but love all the recipes to give variety.

  42. Sue says:

    Wonderfully fresh tasting. Love this one.

  43. Millie M says:

    Day 9 Berry Blast this was really good used a power berry mix and added raspberries and strawberries to it as well. Really liked this smoothie.

  44. Rochelle says:

    Day 9 Berry Blast – used mostly strawberries and it was a very good smoothie, next time I will vary more blue and blackberries – I just used what I had.

  45. Rochelle says:

    Day 5 Mango madness – omg loved this so much I made a second batch! It’s a tropical delight.

  46. Rochelle says:

    Day 4 Very Berry wasn’t really one I liked. I think the Orange took over the flavor in this one. Will try it again with half the amount of orange.

  47. Rochelle says:

    Loved loved the avocado in Cream Machine! Made this almost ice cream like. Difiniyelt a keeper.

  48. Rochelle says:

    Day 8 Carrot cooler was surprisingly good. I added cinnamon and used rainbow baby carrots. Boosted it with protein powder and coconut oil. It was really tasty.

  49. Rochelle says:

    Day 1: What a great starter smoothie. Very tropical flavor with this combo. A winner!

  50. Tammy Verhulst says:

    Rating as a 5, only 1 star had shown when first posted.

  51. Millie M says:

    Day 8 Carrot cooler really enjoyed this smoothie and the coconut water was totally not noticeable in this one.

  52. Cindy J says:

    I never expected that I would like a smoothie that has a base of spinach. And one that is not also based with a juice. I am really impressed with how un-earthy like this smoothie is. I think I will like the addition of green smoothies to my diet.

  53. Monique King says:

    Good, but not my favorite

  54. Cindy A says:

    Day8-Carrot Cooler- Another day when this smoothie is not at all what I expected. If I decide to do this one again I will definitely add more carrots. It isn’t bad but it isn’t that great either. #simplegreensmoothie
    #10daysmoothiechallenge
    #carrotcooler

  55. Millie M says:

    Day 7 Peach Dream I added kale and spinach to this one but I think it was too much with the kale and coconut water. Not a huge fan of coconut water either and peaches are out of season so this one had too much green taste of that makes sense. Maybe in the summer when peaches are in season and have some flavor it may be a good time to try this one again.

  56. Ann Owens says:

    Made with cherries not grapes (both round, right?). Thick and delicious!! Thank you.

  57. Jane Simpson says:

    Like this one! Can’t have coconut water so I replaced it with water. Added pea protein and chia seeds.

  58. Deanna Perlmutter says:

    I loved this combination as it was so tropical! The drink was light, delicious & I really enjoyed it. Marking this one as a favorite!

  59. Cindy A says:

    Day 7 Peach Dream – Since I don’t like peaches I knew I wouldn’t like this & I was right. Could only finish half but one of the grandkids volunteered to finish the rest. He gave it a thumbs up!

  60. Debbie Ramer says:

    This is one of my standard smoothie minus the banana, I subbed for an avocado,

  61. Kimberly says:

    Hand down one of the top five of the best smoothies ever!! If anyone is scared, start off with this one and fall in love with green smoothies for life!

  62. Millie M says:

    Day 6 Cream Machine this was delicious who would of thought putting avocado in a smoothie would make the texture smooth. Really enjoyed this smoothly.

  63. Ann Owens says:

    Adjusted the recipe, as I have anaphylaxis to avocado. So I used 1 TBSP ground flax seeds and some peaches instead. It was a delicious experience.

  64. Leah says:

    Tasty and easy.

  65. Patrice says:

    I enjoyed Beginners Luck. The smoothies are not as sweet as I would like, but it is sweet enough. I recognize that this is all part of retraining my taste buds to not require as much sweetener. I enjoyed it!!

  66. Margaret Eacker says:

    Not my favorite; but not bad.

  67. Marcie says:

    Tried this one a couple of years ago. It was quickly a favorite and is still high in my favorites list. So good and refreshing.

  68. Jess says:

    The whole family loves this smoothie! Picky kiddos included! 🙂

  69. Sherry Villeneuve says:

    Day 1 – Beginner’s Luck was my very first taste of SGS in the very first challenge I took part in. Loved it then & still love it now. It’s tasty.

  70. Claire says:

    I’m confused about using whole oranges. I made the very berry recipe and the whole navel orange made it bitter because of the skin and the pith. Don’t mean to be a novice but should I be using a thin-skinned variety or peeling the orange first?

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Claire, no worries at all- if you’re new to green smoothies, you aren’t expected to know! You will want to remove the skin from your oranges, they’re what made your smoothie bitter. If you can, leave as much of the pith on as possible. It contains more vitamin C than the fruit itself!

  71. MARY ANN G. STIBBE says:

    The taste was just the right sweet, and I did not taste spinach.! Easy with prepped fresh fruit.

  72. Erik Preston says:

    Pineapple Dream was very flavorful and sweet. The ingredients went together well and the results were amazing. Overall, the best smoothie so far.

  73. Erik Preston says:

    I enjoyed the Beginners Luck. It had a great taste to it, for the most part, it just needed to be sweeter. Overall, it was yum!

  74. Erik Preston says:

    I enjoyed the Pink Flamango. It had a great taste to it, for the most part, it just needed to be sweeter.

  75. susan says:

    day 5 of the smoothie challenge is going great!

  76. Ann Owens says:

    Very delicious, smooth and has a nice balance of flavors. If I could, I might say 4.5 as I would have appreciated a bit more brightness in flavor. Thank you!!

  77. Millie M says:

    Day 5 Mango Madness, I bought coconut water even though I don’t really like coconut water hoping it would give the smoothie a coconut taste. However, I am as wrong I remember why I don’t like coconut water again now, wish I’d made it just with water. Next time I’m defiantley skipping the coconut water for plain water and maybe I’ll like this one a bit more. Not terrible but not my favorite with coconut water.

  78. Millie M says:

    I’m behind again day 4 Very berry, not my favorite so far, not sure why, it was ok maybe more strawberries next time.

  79. Yvonne says:

    If you’re new to green smoothies, beginner’s luck is a great way to start! It’s the right blend of a green veggie with fruit!

  80. Cindy A says:

    Day 5 – Mango Madness
    Yummy!!! Tried the chia pudding last night and wasn’t a huge hit with me. Only had a bite or two. Probably a good thing since I’m also doing Weight Watchers and it is SUPER high in points!!!

  81. Kimberly Watt says:

    A great simple smoothie! Look forward to day #2!

  82. Stephanie Mateev says:

    So tasty and easy!! I make this one probably once a week. So glad it was in this challenge!

  83. Carrie O says:

    I’m actually y rating the Day 4 Very Berry smoothie. For some reason I can’t get to that blog (I can be technically challenged!) THIS ONE IS MY FAVORITE! I love the berry flavor. I also added hemp hearts

  84. Cynthia says:

    I need to go shopping, but I remade the second smoothie. Yummy!

  85. Ann says:

    Allergic to pineapples and bananas, so I sub’d dragon fruit and avocado….. Yuck. Added an orange and it helped immensely. I didn’t blend the orange enough though. Pure determination got me through this smoothie.

  86. Janette Thorpe says:

    This was a great smoothie to start. Just the right mix of flavours!

  87. Roxanne Villaluz says:

    I had to rotate through the smoothies because of my bananas’ ripeness. So I am little disoriented LOL.

    The beginner’s luck is a really good smoothie. Totally simple & delicious.

  88. Melisa Breiner-Sanders says:

    This one is a classic and always delicious. Love it.

  89. Kathy Cuevas says:

    Day 4 Very berry.. love it I used more blueberries since don’t care for bananas in my smoothies.

  90. Kathy Cuevas says:

    Day 4 Very Berry… Love it. I added extra blueberries since I don’t care for bananas in my smoothies.

  91. Ann Owens says:

    Tart, bright and clean! Love the orange to bring this smoothie to life!! Also added 2 TBSP flax seed meal just to beef it up some. Delicious!! Love it and many thanks!!

  92. Jeannine Klemm says:

    Day 4 . Mmmmm. Very Berry! I really liked this smoothie! It was just sweet enough… but packed with berry flavor. This is one I will make again!

  93. Leesa says:

    Delicious but very very sweet! Like a dessert actually so maybe I will start treating myself to this after dinner!

  94. Caitlyn Probasco says:

    I love this recipe so much! It’s such a great way to start the challenge and new year right!

  95. Angie M says:

    Day 3 Pineapple Dream, again I added more spinach and less fruit this time as well, I’m learning to customize to my dietary needs.

  96. Angie M says:

    Day 2 Pink Flamingo wasn’t so pink, I used extra spinach but it still tasted great.

  97. Angie M says:

    Day 1 Beginners Luck was a great way to start of the challenge, super yummy.

  98. Cindy A says:

    Day 4 – Very Berry. I expected this one to be one of my favorites but it is the first one that I have not given a grade A. It is a bit bland, especially considering how much fruit it has in it. Also VERY thick so even my Vitamix wouldn’t blend without adding extra water!

  99. Sue says:

    This is awesome. Froze the remains of our New Years Brunch fruit platter and blended the Kale and Spinach in advance with water. All I have to do is pull out the already blended greens and add some frozen fruit – Delish! Thanks so much for the ideas, looking forward to a very healthy 2020 for everyone!

  100. Millie M says:

    Day two Pink Flamingo I am a day behind but loved this smoothie. I’m really digging this challenge.
