This mango green smoothie recipe is a fresh great start to the day. It’s a simple green smoothie and I’ve often seen this combination of ingredients discussed as the “beginners green smoothie”. It has a sweetness to it that works for almost everyone and even my kids love it. Although we are admittedly a big smoothie household. I’ll always take my boys starting the day with such great nutrients as a win. It lets me stress less when dinnertime veggies get pushed around on their plates.

Tips For Making a Green Smoothie
While making a green smoothie like this one is pretty easy there are a few tips that green smoothie aficionados like to share.
First make sure that you always blend your leafy greens thoroughly first. It helps make sure that you don’t have any embarrassing smiles later in the day.
Also make sure to freeze your bananas. I mentioned it earlier but I basically always have a bag of frozen bananas on hand for smoothie making. Once a banana gets a little too ripe for eating into the bag it goes. Plus using frozen bananas makes sure it’s icy cold. Yum!
Here’s to a healthy start to the day!
