Takes Two to Mango Green Smoothie


 Drink up for heart health! Takes Two To Mango Green Smoothie | SimpleGreenSmoothies.com

February is American Heart Month. Put a little love in your heart by blending this mango green smoothie recipe!

At the heart of all of our recipes is peace, love, and leafy greens. And this smoothie is no exception. But I guess you could say we took it a little further by creating a recipe with heart health specifically in mind.

Protect Your Heart

Did you know that  in the United States, about 610,000 people die of heart disease every year? To put that into perspective, that’s 1 in every 4 deaths, making heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. “Every year about 735,000 Americans have a heart attack. Of these, 525,000 are a first heart attack and 210,000 happen in people who have already had a heart attack.” It’s a sobering thought. (source)

Preventing heart disease should definitely be at the top of the list of reasons to eat healthier. And for more people, that doesn’t always mean excessive change – sometimes it’s the small changes that add up over time and have as great of an impact as the big things. A small change we made was as simple as blending up a green smoothie. And it led to making more changes. (We’re not there yet! Baby steps!)

Any of our green smoothie recipes are great for your body’s health, but we made this one especially for a heart-healthy boost by including oranges and rolled oats. Oats are high in dietary fiber and studies have shown that oats help lower bad cholesterol levels which can help prevent cardiovascular disease and stroke. And oranges contain plenty of soluble fiber, as well as flavonoids like hesperidin, both of which helps to prevent blocked arteries by reducing blood cholesterol levels. The high levels of vitamin C in oranges are great for the immune system. See what other foods are on our list of things to eat for heart health.

Green smoothies are a great way to get extra fruits and veggies, fiber, vitamins and minerals, and other nutrients into your day to keep your heart and body healthy.

    Hi there,
    I was just looking up some smoothie recipes and came across your website and I immediately fell in love with all those yummie recipes. I am trying to make some healthy changes to my diet and I am interested to start making smoothies 🙂 Now you say that you drink only one a day every day. My question is, do you consume the smoothie as a meal or a snack in between meals?

    Hi Kris!

    Welcome! Thank you so much for blendin’ with us! We are so happy to have found each other in a busy internet world! You can drink green smoothies any time of the day, here are Jen and Jadah’s tips:

    Our smoothie recipes make about 4-5 cups (32oz – 40oz). Jadah drinks at least 2 cups (16 oz) everyday in the morning as a breakfast meal replacement. Jen drinks hers for lunch or sometimes as a mid morning snack Since green smoothies are full of fiber, they keep us both full for a while. If either of us needs afternoon pick-me-ups, we have been known to make another green smoothie later in the day instead of drinking a caffeinated beverage.

    Can this be drank if the consumer was on a raw vegan diet?

    Hi Zoya,

    YES! Our Takes Two Mango Green Smoothie is perfect for those on a raw vegan diet. Looking for more vegan options? Check out our FreshStart21 Cleanse here…

    When in a recipe I see where in you say a cup of fresh spinach or freah fruit does that mean use fresh when ask and use frozen when ask in a recipe?

  6. SGS Rawkstar

    September 11th, 2015 at 12:25 pm

    Hi Regina!

    Thanks for reaching out! Our recipes are simply here to inspire you and are never set in stone. Feel free to use fresh or frozen fruits + leafy greens based on whatever you prefer or have on hand :). We like to add at least one frozen fruit or veggie to make our smoothies nice and cold, but if you’re blendin’ all fresh ingredients, you can always toss a few ice cubes into the blender! For leafy greens, keep in mind that 1 1/2 cups frozen greens is equivalent to 2 cups fresh greens.

    If we have a big bunch of leafy greens on hand, one of our favorite smoothie hacks is to freeze them so they don’t go bad! Here are our favorite tips + tricks for freezing your greens:

    Hi Tracey,

    Great question! We prefer to blend with fresh greens, but if powdered greens is all you have available, do what works for you!

    Cheers 🙂

    Hi! may i substitute coconut water with fresh water? and then.. is it fine if I use not fresh spinach? i mean i bought many cups today but I’m gonna use it again tomorrow. thanks for the responses!

  10. SGS Rawkstar

    November 19th, 2015 at 11:12 am

    Hi Fany,

    Thanks for reaching out! We love switching up our liquid bases in each recipe, so swapping in coconut water for fresh water is a great idea! Using spinach you have on hand? Perfect! Just make sure it’s bright green and not past its prime!

    Cheers 🙂

    Do you taste the oats? I have a vitamix. should i cook the oats in water first? and will this smoothie give you energy? (should i add chia seeds or flax? i have coconut oil for healthy fats but it might taste too much like coconut. I want a more orangy tropical flavor. I’d make this a meal replacement for breakfast to keep me full till noon.

    Thanks,
    Heather

  12. SGS Rawkstar

    Hi Heather,

    Great question! Oats have a very mild taste + are a great addition to your green smoothie. Oats take awhile to digest, meaning that they provide your body with long-lasting energy. Oats also help maintain stable blood sugar. You can add dry oats, soaked oats or even cooked oats to your smoothie. Dry oats will create a slightly gritty texture, while cooked oats will create the creamiest smoothie. We usually recommend adding 2 tbs dry oats, or 1/4 cup cooked oats to any green smoothie recipe.

  14. Heather G.

    September 8th, 2016 at 2:18 pm

    I have a large container of quaker oats. i hope thats the right kind. they are plain (no taste by itself) yuck! lol and the heart healthy heart is on it.

    OMG this smoothie was really creamy and delicious.

    I added: (for my husband and I) needed to double it. he got a 28 oz and i had 18 oz for breakfast (hope not too much calories) going to plug it in my app.

    1 tbsp melted coconut oil (yum) (for healthy fats)
    3 tbsp Chia Seeds
    1 Banana
    1/4 cup plain greek yogurt (for protein content)
    2 Halo oranges
    3 tbsp Stevia (needed to be sweeter lol)
    Ice

    This green smoothie was a pleasant surprise! Used the packaged frozen mango; the oats just made it “smoothier” – no real change in the taste. Like the orange in it!

    First time commenter here. Thanks for this recipe. It was wonderful and I loved that I had all the ingredients on hand (even the frozen mango). Your photography is beautiful as well. I can definitely appreciate the time and effort that went into that. Thank you!

    Hi,

    This sounds great. Do you have a carb count for this recipe?

    Thanks,

    j.Kim

    Hi Kim,

    We try not to focus on the numbers. You’ll find that when you consume more nourishing whole fruits and veggies, you will not only feel full longer, but you’ll also have lessened cravings for high-calorie, nutritionally empty foods. So in the end it balances out. But we know many people would like to carb and calorie info. Three great resources for tracking calories are Self Nutrition Data, and the phone apps: My Fitness Pal and Lose It.

    Hi! First of all, I’m in love with all the smoothies, especially this one! It was the first one I ever tried and I’ve been in love with it ever since! My question is that would I be able to replace the spinach with kale? And if so, how would I do it without changing the taste so much? Thank you so much!

  22. SGS Rawkstar

    March 27th, 2017 at 9:55 am

    Hi Vivi,

    You can definitely swap in kale! I’ve done it for this recipe + it’s super yummy!! Nervous about trying it for the first time? Go 50/50 at first. 50% kale + 50% spinach.

    Hope this helps!

  23. Joana Hendy

    March 27th, 2017 at 11:16 pm

    I just love mangoes! Are there other ingredients that can replace spinach? Just a thought…

  24. SGS Rawkstar

    Hi Joana,

    Of course! We love switching up our leafy greens! Try swapping in options like kale, romaine, or Swiss chard! Learn more about our favorite greens here…

    random question…
