Ingredients You’ll Need

Baby spinach (1 cup) – You could use the regular version of spinach for this recipe, but the smaller, baby leaves are much sweeter. 

Mango (1 cup) – 1 cup of frozen mango is perfect here, but you could use a large, juicy fresh mango instead, especially if this sunny fruit is available to you.

Banana (1 medium) – A super-soft, mellow yellow banana is perfect here. Choose a medium-sized one for this recipe.

Almond milk (1 cup) – You could make your own almond milk to avoid some of the extra additions added to the shop-bought varieties. 

Chia seeds (1 tbsp) – These tiny little black seeds are full of Omega-3, so try and find them for this recipe!  However, flaxseed, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, or sunflower seeds could be used.

How to Make Mango Spinach Smoothie

Step 1. Place everything into a high-speed blender, like this one, and blend.  It’s always much better to make this and drink it immediately, whilst it’s at its best for the highest amount of nutrition.

If you want to make it ahead, you are better to put everything into the cup or bowl and then leave it ready in the fridge to just whizz up when you want it.

Step 2. Pour the smoothie into a glass and top it up with chia seeds.

Is It Good to Have Spinach in Smoothies?

Spinach is always a good option as it needs no preparation (well, apart from a little washing and draining of course).  No chopping or cooking is required. Just add a really generous amount.

The bitterness from the leaves balances out the sweetness of fruits and can also provide some extra fiber, which your stomach will love.

Spinach is a great source of iron too, so if you are suffering from low levels of iron and lacking energy, it’s an easy addition to a smoothie to naturally increase this.

What Fruits Go Well with Spinach?

With spinach being a little bitter, anything sweet will go well.  But what are the sweetest fruits?

Mango, pineapple, apples, bananas, grapes, and melon are all high sugared fruits that would benefit from the irony spinach leaves. 

With vitamin C helping the absorption of iron, it’s good to have fruits high in this vitamin to help with spinach. 

What About Other Veggies to Go with Spinach?

You could also accompany your iron-rich spinach with a veggie that is high in Vitamin C instead, especially if you don’t have such a sweet tooth or struggling to find mango.

Broccoli, red cabbage, and bell peppers. Give these an extra-long whizz, whizz, whizz to get the creaminess!

Can I Add Anything Else to My Smoothie?

Yes of course!  There are some extras you could add to super-boost your Mango Spinach further.  Here are some options:

½ tsp matcha green tea powder – the color is amazing!

1 tbsp protein powder of your choice. Use rice, hemp, or soy-based ones if you need to avoid dairy.

1 tbsp nut butter or seed butter.

1 small avocado instead of the banana if you wanted to have a less sweet option, but still with all the creaminess.

When Is the Best Time to Drink My Smoothie?

This Mango Spinach Smoothie is so good first thing!  It’s a great breakfast to wake up to and break the overnight fast. 

If you aren’t a breakfast person, whizz it up and take it with you.  By the time you reach work or start your day, your stomach will be thankful that it’s there!

This smoothie also makes a tasty snack that is much better than any processed one you can buy and can help stop you from reaching for unhealthy choices.
