Start your day with this fresh spinach mango smoothie! Made with just 5 simple ingredients, this green smoothie is the perfect way to start the day.
This super green mango spinach smoothie has three different fruits and veggies in it, and I will take all the nutrients I can get in the morning! I've also added some flaxseed for extra fiber. If you're looking to pump up the protein, you can also add a scoop of protein powder!

- This mango spinach smoothie is super thick and creamy, but you can add more almond milk if you prefer a thinner smoothie!
- This makes one smoothie, but you can easily double or triple the ingredients to make more smoothies.

- Ground Flaxseed: this is going to give you more fiber!
- Banana: I'm adding a half of a frozen banana, but you can use a fresh banana if you prefer.
- Unsweetened Almond Milk: I prefer using almond milk, but you can use oat milk, regular dairy milk, or soy milk.
Substitutions & Variations

Recipe Tips & Tricks
- You can use fresh mango, banana and raw spinach, but I prefer using frozen fruits and vegetables to make my smoothie super thick and creamy.
- Depending on your blender you may need to add more liquid to get it to blend. This is the blender I use. You want to use a high-speed blender so the smoothie gets super smooth.
- If you prefer a thinner smoothie, you can add more liquid.
- If you aren't a fan of bananas, swap it out for frozen cauliflower rice or for greek yogurt.
- I find this smoothie naturally sweet, but if you want to sweeten it more you can add a bit of maple syrup.
