Opposites really do attract in this healthy green smoothie without banana recipe.

This green smoothie nicely balances both sweet with spicy flavors.

Kale and spinach are a usual base for green smoothies, and the variety of other ingredients adds a nice depth to this smoothie.

If you’re looking for more green smoothies without bananas, the avocado and mango in this provides the same creaminess while the lemon brings in some beautiful tart undertones.

The mango and apple adds a bit of sweetness which offsets the spiciness from the ginger.

All together, this is a delicious break from your usual glowing green smoothie.

We recommend using frozen mangos if you like a thick texture.

Drinking this easy, healthy green smoothie will make you feel balanced and energized!

So start your morning right by blending this up in your Blendtec or Vitamix blender.

The mango is a member of the drupe family.

Blendtec Promo Code

A drupe is a type of plant food in which the outer fleshy part surrounds a shell with a seed inside (what we sometimes call a pit).

Olives, dates and coconuts are also types of drupes.

There are many different kinds of mangoes that range in color, shape, flavor and seed size but they all contain over 20 vitamins and minerals.

They have also been named the most widely consumed fruit in the world.

Some of the possible health benefits of consuming mango include a decreased risk of macular degeneration, a decreased risk of colon cancer, improvement in digestion and bone health and even benefits for the skin and hair.

    i loved this. My first of two green smoothies from Blender Babes. I have a question though. The serving size this makes seems very huge for me. If you make a 16 oz smoothie, should you drink it all at one time?

    1. Blender Babes

      Awesome Danielle! You should drink what feels good for you. Some people start with between 8 and 16oz and some people drink up to 32oz. Whatever is left go ahead and save it in the fridge and have it later as a snack. It’s usually pretty good for at least 24 hours. You can also freeze the rest in ice cube trays and use them for your green smoothie the next day! 🙂
