Spinach for breakfast in a sweet smoothie? It works. Trust me.
This is a great intro to green breakfast smoothies. The banana-mango combination really hides the vegetable taste, and is just a complete breakfast. As I’ve said before, smoothies are just the easiest breakfast ever.
I upped the Greek yogurt in this recipe, originally found on the SELF magazine website, to help it last just a little bit longer into the morning. To make this recipe even easier, I used frozen mango.
Mango Tango Green Smoothie
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 banana, sliced
- 1/2 cup chopped mango (I use frozen)
- 1 tbsp. ground flaxseed
- 1 cup fresh baby spinach
- 1/3 cup plain, nonfat Greek yogurt
- 1 tsp. honey
Blend together and enjoy!
