I’ve been loving smoothies in the morning recently! They’re quick and easy to make, healthy and versatile. This recipe is made with frozen mango, pineapple, banana, and fresh spinach.
This smooth and creamy green smoothie is one of my favorite healthy breakfasts. It combines two of my favorite tropical fruits: pineapple and mango which makes me feel like I’m having a piña colada for breakfast!
Keeping a stash of frozen fruit in the freezer will ensure that you can always make a quick smoothie in the morning. I like to add hemp seeds, non-dairy milk, and a banana for creaminess.
If you’re new to making smoothies, you’ll learn pretty quickly that they’re super versatile. Feel free to customize this one to your heart’s content with your favorite fruits, veggies, protein powder, or superfoods.

FAQs and Expert Tips
If your smoothie is coming out chunky try adding more liquid and blending it longer. If it’s still not smooth and creamy it may be time to upgrade your blender. I love my Vitamix and use it almost daily. I have also heard good things about the Ninja blender.
