I’ve made many kinds of green smoothies over the years, but this is my current favorite! My best friend Natalie came to visit me right after I had my son and she made me these. I loved the recipe so much, I made her write it down before she left. Seeing her handwriting makes me happy! You know when someone just feels like “home” to you? That’s our friendship.
2 cups organic spinach or other greens
2 cups unsweetened vanilla coconut milk (or any milk of your choice)
1.5 cups frozen mango
1 frozen banana (if you don’t have them frozen, fresh is okay too!)
Dash of vanilla – optional, use if you aren’t using a vanilla flavored milk.
1. I always blend my greens first so that they are super smooth and you don’t get chunks of spinach. Ain’t nobody got time for that. Combine greens and about half (or 1 cup) of the milk in your blender until smooth.
2. Add in frozen fruit and the rest of your milk and blend.
This is the milk Natalie and I love to use, but you can use whatever milk you prefer:
