The inspiration for this green super smoothie recipe came from my local heath store where we were given a taster. Bella and Poppy just couldn’t get enough. Two extremely happy children asking for a drink filled with spinach and avocado made me a very happy mum. So we recreated this amazing smoothie at home – and to this day I am still regularly asked for our Green Super Smoothie!
240ml Coconut milk
1 Roughly chopped ripe mango approx. 220g
1/4 Ripe avocado
30g Washed spinach/kale/chard with stalks removed or 3-4 tbs juice if using a juicer
5 Ice cubes
1tsp (Raw) honey
- Add all ingredients to a blender and whizz until smooth
Tips: Buy mangoes when they are in season and freeze them already prepared. If using frozen mango no need to add ice cubes.
Options: Add extra honey if you prefer it sweeter and more mango/less coconut milk if you prefer it thicker.
How kids can help
- If you are picking greens from your garden ask your helper to help harvest
- Ask your helper to add ingredients to the blender, ensuring the blade is safe and the power is switched off!
