Make this Mango Spinach Smoothie for breakfast, dessert or a snack. It’s our favorite super green smoothie from our healthy smoothie recipes.
We are always on the go and it is difficult to eat healthier, it’s also difficult to reach our goals of 5-9 vegetables and fruit each day. And it’s even more challenging to obtain our nutrient-rich leafy green quota for the week. So what if I told you that with one delicious green smoothie, you could check off one serving of leafy green veggies and two servings of fruit for the day?

Ever since Popeye downed that spinach to build those muscles, we have been taught that spinach is one of the world’s top healthiest vegetables. We know we need to eat more spinach but it’s difficult and it’s even more difficult to get our children to eat it. I grew up watching Popeye but that didn’t get me to grab that can of spinach and can opener.
This Mango Spinach Smoothie is sweet and delicious and other than the color no one would suspect that spinach is one of the main ingredients. It’s on the top of our list for healthy breakfast smoothie recipes. In fact, this super green smoothie contains 1/2 cup of leafy green spinach per serving. It doesn’t contain any added sugar but does have natural sugar from the fruit.
