I love mango in a smoothie and adding pineapple makes for one of my favorite flavor combos. So it tastes good, but adding spinach makes it a green smoothie and that makes it healthier. Other than broccoli (another sneaky favorite addition), I love adding spinach to my smoothies. It is a very simple way to get the wonderful nutrients that spinach provides.
- 2 cups of spinach
- 1 mango
- 1 banana
- 1 cup pineapple chunks
- 1 cup water
Serves 2, but don’t be surprised if you finish it by yourself.
