I’m sure you all must think we just eat junk. By the recipes I’ve posted thus far, I’d think the same thing. But we actually do eat some healthy food and today’s post is proof, our Tropical Green Smoothie!
My kids even like it, so that’s a winner with me.
You can substitute pineapple or peaches for the mango, (or do a mixture of all 3). Just stick with those 3 yellow/orange fruits for this smoothie.
Tropical Green Smoothie
- 1 to 2 bananas
- 1 orange (peeled)
- 1/2 lemon (juiced)
- 1 handful spinach or kale leaves
- 1 1/2 cup mango (frozen)
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 6 ice cubes
- liquid stevia (if needed, to taste)
Dump all the ingredients into a blender. You’ll want to start out with about 1/2 cup of water and see how it blends up. If it is too thick, you’ll want to add more water until it is the right consistency.
