Mango Green Smoothie -
where  the tropics meets healthy greens

What happens when you add mango to a green smoothie?  You get a smoother, creamier smoothie.  In fact mangos are one of the best fruits to add to smoothies.  They add sweetness which helps mask the bitter taste of the greens, and they are high in soluble fiber which makes smoothies thick and creamy.    Mangos do the same job as a banana, so you can leave the banana out if you wish, or add them in, along with other fruits for extra sweetness and taste.

They also keep your green smoothies green.   If you want a green looking smoothie you need to add yellow, orange or green fruit.  Even when I added some strawberries, my smoothie still came out looking green rather than a yucky brown.

You may find you need to add an extra sweetener, and there are healthy ways to do this without adding sugar, such as honey or dates. 

Mango green smoothies are a nutritional powerhouse as they combine two great superfoods.   Mangoes and spinach are both good sources of vitamin A and vitamin C, potassium, niacin and fiber.
