One of the tastiest ways to get a quick boost of nutrition is to drink a green smoothie. This healthy recipe is especially good for people who don’t enjoy leafy green vegetables because you can’t actually taste the greens in the smoothie. You can make a green smoothie by adding spinach, kale, Swiss chard, or other greens to just about any fruit smoothie recipe.
I love the combination here, but you can easily adapt it by substituting different fruit, milk, or yogurt. I like to add a little cooked oatmeal, but you can skip it if you don’t have any on hand. This smoothie is great with breakfast, and it makes a yummy snack to get you through to the next meal.
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 cup water
- ¼ cup frozen spinach
- 1½ cups chopped mango
- 2 medium ripe bananas
- 2 tbs cooked or soaked oatmeal
- Place the coconut milk and water in a blender. I learned from Real Simple that adding the liquid first helps the blades to move freely.
- Add the remaining ingredients to the blender and puree until smooth. Taste it to see if it needs a bit of maple syrup for extra sweetness.
- Divide into 4 glasses and serve. This can also be refrigerated for later.
