I don’t know about you, but I’ve before making this smoothie I’ve always had this aversion to green smoothies. They just always seemed “too healthy” and I know it’s not good to judge food, but they just looked like they wouldn’t taste too good. I mean, vegetables in smoothies? Really?
But the other day I was experimenting in the kitchen with making a green smoothie (I don’t really know why) and when I combined mango, banana, avocado, and spinach, I got a REALLY delicious smoothie!
The avocado and spinach flavor isn’t noticeable at all and I love it!
This smoothie is also pretty thick so it can eaten as a smoothie bowl or just drunk(?) in a mug with some milk added to thin in out.
So sorry green smoothies-y’all deserve some respect.
1 cup frozen mango or pineapple chunks (I prefer frozen for the texture but fresh fruit would work too)
1/2 of an avocado, pitted
1/2 cup unpacked spinach leaves
1 medium size ripe banana
2-4 tbsp milk of choice to thin out the smoothie
1/4 cup flaxseed (optional)
1 tbsp maple syrup or other sweetener (optional)
Blend all the ingredients until smooth
I also topped mine Lemon Granola.
If you made this recipe or if you have any questions, don’t be afraid to comment. I’d love to hear what you have to say!
