Cooking Green Goodness: Spinach Orange & Mango Smoothie

Spinach: An edible flowering plant native to central and west Asia.

Even the most health-conscious diner can get to the end of a day and forget to eat a leafy green; life gets busy. Or maybe, you are not that crazy about eating vegetables. But what if there was a way to veg out by making several servings of fruits and vegetables into a delicious, easy-to-consume snack that require no cooking, very little chopping, and no chewing? Odds are, sitting on your kitchen counter is a tool that can turn any variety of fruits and vegetables you missed eating on any given day, into enticing drinks in moments: the blender.

Spinach Orange Mango Smoothie

  • Servings: 2 - 3 cups
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

A delectable and energizing breakfast smoothie.


  • 2 cups Spinach (I like to add about a 1/2 cup extra)
  • 2 cups frozen mango
  • 1 orange, peeled
  • 1/4 cup dry oats
  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk


Add all ingredients in a blender . Blend until smooth. Serve immediately.


Adjust ingredients as necessary to achieve desired taste.

High performance blenders are great for making purees, sometimes referred to as “whole juices.” A whole juice contains only the juice of the fruit and vegetables (unlike a smoothie, which often contain a base for a creamier consistency). All the beautiful fruits and vegetables you can imagine can be made into delectable drinks with the use of a good blender. Persimmon, watermelon, mango and pineapple are the bright colours on your palette that will make for show-stopping sippables. Vegetables like spinach, kale and cucumber, are no longer just side dishes. Once you balance your veggies with a hit of sweet, healthy fruit, even picky kids will love the juice.
