Green smoothies are such a great way to pack in greens that you may not normally eat much of. If you’re new to green smoothies and are apprehensive of putting greens in your drink, this is a good smoothie to start with. It’s sweet, refreshing without the strong “green flavor”. It packs a mean nutritional punch so you’re enjoying a sweet succulent drink and nourishing your body with powerful nutrients at the same time. This smoothie is also banana free – using avocado instead for that creamy consistency without the sugar!
- 2 cups frozen mango
- 1 Persian cucumber
- 1 celery stalk (chopped in pieces)
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 1/2 cups fresh coconut water
- 1 cup spinach
- Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until creamy and smooth.
