Our Favorite Tropical Green Smoothie

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!

Now this isn’t low sugar by any means but it doesn’t have any refined sugar and is packed with vitamins.  Chia and kale make it especially good for you!

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

Ingredients:

  • 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
  • water
  • liquid stevia (if needed, to taste)

Directions:

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.
