Ingredients:

This recipe takes about 5 minutes to make. Serves 1 to 2.

• 1 cup of spinach
• 1 cup of frozen mango
• 1 cup of frozen banana
• 1 cup of coconut water
• 1 tbsp of goji berries

Instructions:

Blend the spinach and coconut water in a blender until the leafy chunks are gone.
Add the fruits and goji berries. Continue blending until you get that smooth texture.
Consume immediately for maximum nutrient absorption.

Ideas And Tips:

• Spinach is commonly used for green smoothies for its mild taste. Fruits can easily mask its flavor. Its texture is easy to blend as well. Other green leafy vegetable choices include bok choy, collard greens, parsley, romaine lettuce, and cabbage.

• Use a combination of at least two fruits. The first is to make your smoothie creamy and not watery. You may choose from bananas, mangoes, apples, avocados or pears. The second fruit is to enhance the flavor. You may choose your favorite fruit. Some suggestions are strawberries, blueberries, pineapples, grapes or oranges.

• The liquid will help the ingredients blend well together and prevent the smoothie from becoming too thick. Aside from water, you may use green tea, milk, nut milk, coconut milk or 100% fruit juice.

• Use your favorite superfood for the extra energy booster. You may choose from chia seeds, coconut oil, flax seeds, hemp seeds, acai berries, raw cocoa or protein powder.

• Freeze your fruits for that ready-chilled and refreshing smoothie.

• Blend in stages, starting with your liquid and green leafy vegetable for that smoother experience.
