If you are unfamiliar with how to make a smoothie, decide beforehand the preferred consistency (sorbet-like to juice-like). Tending to like mine thicker, these instructions will make more of a sorbet smoothie. Add less ice if you desire a more liquid smoothie.

Having a pleasant taste, packed full of spinach, it is a nice way of adding greens to your diet. Do not worry if the taste of spinach seems unappealing, the flavors balance really well. It is a perfect drink for adding spirulina powder, chlorella powder, kelp powder or moringa powder, since the ultimate taste is not affected by the addition.

A refreshing light blend of spinach, mango, and banana.

Ingredients

  • 1 semi-ripe banana (I don’t like the taste of a green or overly ripe banana).
  • One third ripe mango (or five frozen mango chunks).
  • Three handfuls spinach (2 oz.).
  • 3/4 c. water.
  • One container of ice cubes (mine holds 12).

Directions

  1. Add banana and water to blender. Blend well.
  2. Add mango and combine.
  3. Add spinach handfuls. Blend well.
  4. Now put as many ice cubes as desired. As mentioned, I use a whole tray. Blend on high. Mine starts icing fairly rapidly. Keep blending until you no longer hear the sound of ice crunching. Serve and enjoy! FYI: I use a spoon. It is sort of like a green ice cream (yum).
