Simple green smoothies are just that – Simple! Way too often the recipes for “green” smoothies are loaded down with a whole lot of exotic ingredients. Not only are these sometimes difficult to find but that also, in my opinion, detracts from what smoothies are supposed to be: healthy, fun, and easy!
I’m sure you have seen this recipe around in one form or another; like I said, it is simple! But that doesn’t negate the fact that it is very healthy and really tasty.
So, when looking for some simple green smoothies, keep this recipe in mind. It is endlessly variable and always easy.
In your favorite smoothie blender, mix:
- 2 cups baby spinach
- 2 cups filtered water
- 1 cup mango (previously frozen if preferred)
- 1 cup pineapple (please, not canned if you can avoid it)
- 2 previously frozen bananas, peeled and sliced (TIP peel and slice BEFORE FREEZING)
For best results blend the spinach and water first and get rid of the leafy clumps that sometimes happen. Add the fruit next and mix until you reach your preferred consistency.
