Yay for Friday! Did this week zoom by for your guys or did it seem extra long?

With all the busy summer activities going on, I like to start my mornings off with a green smoothie to give me the boost of energy I need to keep me going throughout the day.

This smoothie recipe is packed with tropical flavors and some hidden greens without looking like you’re trying to hide any.

I have no problem with drinking monster green smoothies, but if you’re like my husband or know someone else that is on team #wontdrinkanythinggreen then this is another smoothie recipe for you :)

Just like my other green smoothie I shared last week, this one has no added sugar but feel free to add honey, maple syrup or agave nectar if you’d like.

It is packed with frozen mango chunks, fresh orange and peach slices, ginger root, flaxseed meal, ground cinnamon and coconut greek yogurt. If you’re not a fan of coconut, feel free to use plain or vanilla yogurt instead.

For the greens, I used baby spinach in here again for its mild flavor.

It’s so easy to get a powerful dose of vitamins and minerals wrapped up in this yummy tropical package.

Just toss everything into your blender and you’ll have the perfect healthy breakfast or afternoon pick-me-up.

    It’s smoothie season in our house too! I made a mango lassi last week and should have added greens like you did in this post. Wonderful idea, and a great way to get my 4-year old to eat some veggies! ;)

  2. says

    Oooh Kelly – the idea of that fresh ginger combined with mango and orange in this shake is knocking my socks off – what a nutritional jolt! And totally delectable too – I cannot wait to get home and try this – I don’t think Ive ever had ginger in a shake before! My head’s buzzing by your ingenuity! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Yay for Friday, indeed! Great smoothie recipe, Kelly. I think spinach and mango work really well together in smoothies – such creaminess that they provide. I too feel that a green smoothie is one of the best ways to begin the day and leave you feeling light on your feet. I may never end my current obsession with coconut [going on the better half of the year now], so this one looks great all year long!

    I love your sneaky green smoothies, healthy and tasty as I have told you before I love mango so I know I would love a glass – please send one this way :D

    Oh my gosh, we’re so like your husband in this house! We just never really got on the green smoothie wagon. Something about drinking greens weirds me out. But I do love me some mangoes and peaches so this seems like a good way to ease in to the greens :)

    This smoothie is like a nice little tropical escape! I think I need to try this so I’ll have more energy as I start my day but it also sounds great for any time of day as we run around and get all sweaty. : ) I love the mangoes and all the fruit providing natural sweetness..I don’t think I’d need any added sugar either. And love the stealth spinach! Do you make your smoothies fresh always or can you make some and keep it in the fridge a day or two?

      Thanks Monica :) I love smoothies because they definitely help give me that extra boost of energy. I usually make a big batch in the morning and will drink 1 glass and leave another glass in the fridge to sip on throughout the day when I start to feel sluggish. I don’t recommend making this more than a few hours ahead since the smoothie won’t taste the same because the juices separate and you will need to stir with a spoon to mix everything back together again. Even after mixing, the flavors from the spinach/greens won’t taste as fresh so for best results, a fresh smoothie is my favorite :)
      I’ve heard you can freeze a smoothie into ice cubes and then just thaw them into a glass and it tastes just like you made it that morning but I haven’t tried it yet :) Have fun with all the different smoothie combinations and hope you had a great weekend :)

    I’m so ready for the weekend! Mine needs some mango green smoothies. I <3 mango so much! And I love sneaking greens in because you honestly can't taste them! Pinned!

    I drink mango smoothies a couple of times per week, but I’ve never thought of making it a green smoothie or adding oranges. I think I like my berries too much! Now, I can make a healthier mango smoothie to cool us off during these HOT summer days. xo

    Truly sad to say that I got allergic to mango and haven’t eaten mango for more than a year now ((((cry)))))! But I know how this tastes like by my heart. I love your smoothie, Kelly! I can drink this three times a day, and will still not feel enough. =P Hee hee. From a big mango fan… <3

    I totally love BRIGHT green smoothies, but my hubby on the other hand is the opposite. I often make a base recipe and pour his batch and then toss all my greens in! Maybe I’ll sneak a bit in his with this recipe :) Love it!

    • says

      Hehe, I’m with you and love bright green smoothies too :) My husband has been wanting me to make him a bigger batch lately so I had to come up with one that would work just for him and not have a hint of green. Thanks so much for stopping by Kristina and your sweet comment :)

    I love frozen mango chunks and made it with fresh Thai basil a month ago. This looks like a delicious smoothie. I like adding flaxseed meal and fresh ginger to smoothies, they add a nice heat and tanginess. The straws are adorable – love them! Did you use fresh or frozen mango for the smoothie? ❤
