    Thank you for this – sounds yummy and will be next up on the list for the weekend. I also appreciate a banana free recipe, I can’t stand the smell of them, so even if you can’t taste them in the smoothies, they still have to live in your kitchen until they’re gone! Looking forward to this one!!!

    Hi Pauline,

    Not a banana fan? We got you covered!

    Some great banana substitutes are: Mango, Papaya, Pear, Chia seeds, Fresh dates, Nut Butters, Unsweetened applesauce, Avocado (won’t add the sweetness, but will definitely add the thick and creamy texture)!

    I can’t do bananas either. I have found that with most of these recipes you can just leave it out and still have a good smoothie. Sometimes it’s better if you reduce the liquid portion a bit. Just another option when you don’t have something to replace it with.

    I was wondering if you drink both servings at one time or if it’s just one serving that suffices. I’ve seen your page about how to make the smoothie a meal replacement and was wondering if you have the whole batch at one time!

  10. SGS Rawkstar

    May 14th, 2015 at 8:22 am

    Hi Ananya,

    Jadah drinks at least 2 cups (16oz) every morning as a breakfast meal replacement. Jen has her’s for lunch, or an afternoon snack. We primarily suggest enjoying one 16oz smoothie at a time, and enjoying the second smoothie later in the day, or share the extra serving with a friend!

    After reading the name of the recipe the first thing that comes in my mind is alcohol. I’m so glad this is a healthy drink, like a faux margarita. It’s so green and nutritious.

    Hi Jane,

    Exactly! We hope you enjoy it! This was our go-to smoothie for Cinco de Mayo!

    I have been looking at the recipes for your smoothies and I have a problem. I do not like any green leafy veggies. I have never eaten a salad in my life. (I’m 68) I despise onions, cabbage, celery, kale, etc. Is there any hope for me?

  18. SGS Rawkstar

    June 10th, 2015 at 8:47 am

    Hi Frank,

    It’s all about our Simple Green Smoothie Formula (https://simplegreensmoothies.com/green-smoothie-101) that we use for every recipe. Our ratio of leafy greens to fruits helps mask any of the bitter taste that might have kept you away from them before. My husband called any leafy greens rabbit food before I introduced him to Simple Green Smoothies, and now he’s hooked. If you’re new to green smoothies, start with Beginner’s Luck!


    We’re here if you have any questions!

    I was/am the same way. Brussel sprouts, cabbage, etc. would always make me gag. Literally. But, bananas and other creamy fruits completely mask the taste of any leafy greens. It’s kinda crazy.

    Made this Mango-margarita smoothie this morning, I added Greek yogart instead of banana for protein factor. It was light and refreshing. Will be making this again as a poolside refresher/pick-me-up on those hot summer days.

    Hello ! I cannot eat bananas, oranges and kiwi, what can be a substitute of those fruits ?

    Thanks a lot !

  30. SGS Rawkstar

    July 10th, 2015 at 4:46 pm

    Hi Pazpazim,

    Thanks for reaching out. Can’t have bananas, oranges, + kiwis, no worries, we’ve got you covered! Some great banana substitutes are:
    mango, papaya, pear, chia seeds, fresh dates, nut butters, unsweetened applesauce, + avocado (won’t add the sweetness, but will definitely add the thick and creamy texture)


    For oranges: we love reaching for grapefruit, clementine, tangerine, mango, + papaya in their place. And for kiwi: mango, tangerine, + lime!

    Hope this helps!

    I’ve been wanting to make this one for a while because I love margaritas. I decided to make it for my boyfriend since he practically survives off of smoothies.
    We absolutely loved it. He said it was his favorite part of breakfast (we had it with toast, poached egg, and avocado garlic lime spread). He said it went well with the avocado lime spread.
    Now he’s a believer of simple green smoothies.
    I really liked the addition of the salt around the rim. It provided a nice contrast to the sweetness of the drink.

    Hi Loren,

    YAY! We’re so excited to hear you + your boyfriend enjoyed our Tropical Mango-Rita Green Smoothie! It’s the perfect summer green smoothie, especially with the hot weather coming in August. We love hearing from our SGS community, thank you for taking the time to reach out!

    Cheers 🙂

    Hi Jadah & Jen, i’m wondering what kind of orange that you use for this recipe? How about the orange seeds? Do you squeeze the orange or just put it on blender? Thanks

  34. SGS Rawkstar

    September 29th, 2015 at 9:55 am

    Hi Angguni,

    Thanks for reaching out! Use any orange you love, my favorite is navel! If you want to truly capture all the benefits that citrus fruits can provide, then try blending them whole (including the seeds) with your green smoothies (just make sure they are organic if you use the peel and all. Don’t go crazy on the peels because the taste is strong (Jen figured that out the hard way).


    Cheers 🙂
