I’ve been making this drink almost daily, to switch it up from my SuperCharger Green Smoothie. This drink is a great way to include lots of greens in your morning to kickstart your day and give you energy. If you’re too lazy to chew slowly, and/need a quick burst of energy in the morning or as a snack, this tropical green smoothie is for you.
This smoothie can be rustled up in a few minutes. Blending the fruit and greens will help your body absorb the maximum nutrition from the plants and flush out toxins, optimising health and productivity.
I balanced spinach with mango and tangerine. Such fruit provide exceptional juiciness, vibrant tropical flair, and citrus flavour, helping you improve digestion, protect against free radicals, support your immune system, especially given such fruit’s high vitamin C content.
As a rich source of protein, chlorophyll and many other nutrients, spinach is a nutritional powerhouse. And I promise – you can’t even taste the spinach in the smoothie; such a pleasurable and delicious way to get your greens in the morning. Of course, the mango extract gives this smoothie a pop.
And remember, use coconut water from fresh coconuts if possible. If not, you can use Harvest Coconut Water. 😉
