My kids go crazy for this Mango Smoothie Recipe packed with mango and bit of spinach.
Yep, my kids happily drink their spinach right alongside me! Yet it wasn’t always the case. But I promise you… when you blend spinach into your smoothie, you honestly won’t even taste it. Yet you’ll reap the nutritional benefits such as more fiber, phytonutrients and calcium. Try it once and be hooked on the simple green smoothie life, just like me!
If you like oranges, mango and bananas, you’ll love the taste of this recipe. Sure, the spinach and bright green color might be a little intimidating.

I recently did a survey on Instagram and had you vote on your favorite tropical fruit. Mango beat out pineapple by a smidge. To celebrate the winner, I’m sharing a simple mango smoothie recipe that I created for my book, Simple Green Smoothies.
This mango smoothie recipe is packed with vitamins A and C to give your body essential vitamins to thrive. The addition of coconut water makes it a great post workout drink as it replenishes your electrolytes.
2 Cups of spinach
2 Cups unsweetened coconut water
1 orange, peeled
1 cup mango, frozen
1 banana, peeled
- Peel the orange.
- Blend spinach, coconut water and orange together until leafy chunks are done.
- Add in the banana and mango.
- Blend until smoothie.
- Pour into two glasses and enjoy!
If you’re not a fan of bananas, feel free to swap the banana for 1/2 avocado. You’ll get a creamy smoothie AND boost it with some healthy fats and vitamin E, which is wonderful for your skin. Sometimes I’ll half a banana and 1/4 avocado to the recipe to change it up and get the best of both worlds. The beauty of a green smoothie is, as long as you follow the Rawkstar Formula, you’ll get a tasty green smoothie every time.
