- fresh mango
Substitutions and Variations
Seriously this easy, simple recipe idea is not only a quick breakfast option - it is also a good way to sneak some green vegetables into your family's diet.
You can change up the apple juice with mango juice, orange juice, pineapple juice or cucumber juice.
You can add fresh bananas, unsweetened almond milk or plain Greek yogurt if you want a creamier smoothie. You can also use frozen mango if you cannot find fresh.
The greens can be changed up too. Chard, celery or carrot greens can be added or substituted.
Within a few minutes, breakfast is ready! I make mine with fresh mango because it is one of my favorite fruits, but I change it out for pineapple once in a while too.
Cut up the mango pieces the evening before and keep in the refrigerator for use in this recipe and others.
Prewash the spinach and kale so it is ready to go. Have single served portions stored individually in the refrigerator at the beginning of the week to save valuable preparation time.
Store the ingredients in an airtight container in the refrigerator the night before and just dump them into your blender with ice.
With a little advanced preparation of the fruit, you can whip this up in about 2 minutes. It is creamy and refreshing and tastes like a milkshake and it costs only pennies to make!
