My favorite green smoothie

  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 (easily multiplied) 1x


  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • 1 banana, preferably frozen
  • 2 cups spinach (or just 2 big ol' handfuls)
  • 1 cup soy milk (or any milk/liquid of your choice)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon hemp hearts


  1. Add all ingredients to blender and blend away!


Technically, the chia seeds and hemp hearts can be optional but chia makes it more filling and I swear the hemp hearts make it super creamy, which I adore.

To make smoothie packs, freeze the mango, banana and spinach in a ziplock bag, plastic bag or mason jar (full disclosure - getting frozen things out of a mason jar is hard, but doable if you let it sit out for a little bit). When you're ready to drink, just dump it all in your blender and add the seeds and milk (you might need a tiny more milk since the spinach is frozen too, but that depends on your consistency preference). TA DA!

You can also blend multiple servings of the smoothie over the weekend and just grab and go throughout the week. I find it only stays good in the fridge for about a day, so I prefer to freeze them and then let it thaw overnight in the fridge.

If I'm not making the smoothie packs, I like to freeze a bunch of bananas to always have on had. Instead of freezing them all separately, I just slice each one into 4 pieces and throw a bunch in a bag. When I'm ready to make a smoothie, I grab 4 chunks and I'm ready to go.
