Spinach and Mango Smoothie

4.25 from 4 votes

A three-ingredient smoothie that gets a gold star for good nutrition.

Sometimes just four simple ingredients combine to bring you a smoothie offering more health benefits than many people enjoy in an entire day. Mango, spinach, and coconut milk or almond milk, when combined, provide you with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber in levels you simply can’t achieve without a powerhouse of a superfood smoothie.

Mangoes are absolutely loaded with ingredients that do amazing things for your body. They contain a multitude of cancer-fighting antioxidants, and fight cholesterol with their high fiber and pectin levels. Mango helps to regulate insulin levels, and is an excellent food for preventing pre-diabetes, as it has a low glycemic index. Its high levels of vitamin C boost the immune system and its abundance of vitamin A improves eyesight. Plus, mangoes are rich in iron, making them a great way to load up on this important mineral, even if you’re staying away from meat.

And of course, spinach is one of our favorite, and most versatile, superfoods. You’ll barely notice that it’s present in this mango-flavored smoothie, but its health benefits are undeniable. Filled with iron, that precious mineral that’s hard to come by when eating a vegetarian diet, and packed with fiber, this leafy green has it all. Phytonutrients and antioxidants make spinach heart healthy, a cancer fighter, and great for the immune system.

Choose coconut milk or almond milk for a creamy smoothie without added fat and calories. And because this smoothie has only four ingredients, you can whip it up daily with ease!

  1. Reading the list of ingredients for the Spinach & Mangoe smoothie, in the directions blend almonds, but no quantity?

    1. Gilly, Please grind 1/4 cup almonds to a powder in the blender before adding the other ingredients.

  2. You mention blending almond into a powder, but they are not listed in the recipe. Do you need to add them, or do you mean the chia seeds?

    1. Sue, Yes, add 1/4 cup almonds at the beginning and grind to a powder before adding the other ingredients. This will give you the protein you need for lasting energy. Thanks for bringing this to our attention!

        1. You can use peanut butter or actual almond butter. Also, flax or hemp seeds can be used in place of chia.

  3. Just found this recipe. Don’t have fresh mango, so wondering how much frozen I should use (either by weight or measuring cup size. Thanks!

  4. Would this work without the almonds? I am allergic to all variety of nuts and most seeds. All I can have are sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds

  5. Do you taste the spinach? I think this sounds great but my a little worried it will be too much

  6. Can I make a batch of this recipe & keep it in the fridge for a few days? If so how many days will it keep?

    1. Katie, You can also add the ingredients in a freezer safe container and make later. If you refrigerate, it should be fine for a couple of days.
