What Makes This Green Breakfast Smoothie So Great?
If you’re looking for a healthy breakfast smoothie, look no further! This Green Goddess Smoothie is packed with tons of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to get you energized for your day. Usually I like savory vs sweet when it comes to breakfast, but lately I have been loving this tropical breakfast smoothie. It is very satisfying and keeps me full all morning! It is perfect for taking with you on-the-go if you need something quick before flying out the door to work, as well.
What You Need To Make This Tropical Green Smoothie
I always make sure to have the ingredients for this in my freezer and pantry. The best part is that this smoothie is so versatile. You can throw in whatever fruit or greens you have!
Spinach – I like to get raw, organic spinach leaves.
Frozen mango chunks
Pineapple chunks (frozen)
Frozen avocado chunks – I’ve been able to find these in the freezer section at my local grocery store, but you can always cut up your own and freeze them! Avocado is packed with fiber, potassium, and healthy fats.
Flax seed meal – This is basically ground up flax seeds. It is high in fiber and omega 3 fatty acids.
Collagen – This is optional, but I like to add it because it is flavorless and great for hair, nails, and gut health!
Almond milk – or dairy free milk of choice. Califia Farms is my favorite brand.
Water – I like to do part dairy free milk and part water to get the perfect consistency.
Almond butter – I love the Kirkland brand almond butter made with just almonds!
That’s all you need. Feel free to sub kale for the spinach.
What Type of Blender Works Best for Smoothies?
Any blender should do the trick for this recipe, but I absolutely love my Vitamix. I got a refurbished one on their website for a fraction of the cost. 5 years later, it is still working like a charm! They also have great customer service. I love using my Vitamix for making cashew cream and other cream sauces, as well.
How To Make This Banana Mango Spinach Smoothie
Simply add all of the ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth! If you prefer it to be a little thinner, you can add more almond milk and/or water as needed. This recipe makes two 16-oz smoothies.
Is this smoothie paleo? Yes! It is paleo because it doesn’t have any grains, dairy, or gluten. It is also Whole30 friendly in terms of ingredients.
Is this smoothie vegan? Yes, it is made with vegan ingredients.
Can you save this smoothie and drink it later? Yes, it will last in the fridge for up to a day. This recipe is best enjoyed fresh, however!
Can this smoothie be made nut free? Yes, simply replace the almond milk with coconut milk and omit the almond butter! You could sub sunflower seed butter instead.
