I always feel so much better when I start my day with a smoothie.
But that doesn't mean I always do...
Sometimes I forget, sometimes I feel like something more substantial, and sometimes I am in such a rush I need something you can just grab and go and not have to weigh out all of the ingredients.
As this mango avocado smoothie uses mostly frozen ingredients, it is the perfect smoothie for making up little pre-made smoothie bags which can be just thrown into the blender first thing in the morning.
You are going to need:
- Frozen bananas
- Frozen avocado
- Frozen mango
- Spinach (can be fresh or frozen depending on what you have on hand)
- Coconut water
- A big scoop of almond butter (or another nut/seed butter of choice)
- Assorted optional toppings: hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, edible flowers, granola (try this macadamia one, it goes perfectly)
Because the frozen mango, avocado, and banana are all so creamy we can get away with coconut water instead of nut milk here and it won't be too watery.
Tips For Topping Your Mango Banana Smoothie
If you are like me, and like a bit of texture to your smoothie, you might want to consider adding some toppings.
My picks include:
- Sunflower seeds
- Pumpkin seeds
- Hemp seeds
- Chia Seeds
- Buckwheat groats
- Edible flowers
- Honey, maple syrup or agave syrup
- Crushed nuts
The sky is the limit really when it comes to dressing your smoothie.
Simply pick your favorite toppings and sprinkle on top.
Make sure to use a wide straw to be sure the toppings don't get stuck in there as that can be a bit of a pain!
How To Make A Mango Banana Smoothie: Prep Instructions
A few tips for making the smoothest smoothie around:
- Always blend the green (be it spinach or kale) with the liquid (here the coconut water) first, before adding any of the other ingredients. This way you can put it to the highest speed and make sure it is properly blended without warming up the whole smoothie.
- After the green component has been blended until smooth, then add the other ingredients. It is better if these are frozen too as then you do not have to add extra ice to get a nice cold smoothie.
- The more frozen ingredients you add, the thicker the smoothie will become. If it is too thick, simply add some more coconut water.
If you would like to prep your mango spinach smoothie ahead of time there are a few extra steps:
- This is easier if you pre-blend the spinach and coconut water until smooth and then freeze in either silicone muffin cups or even in ice cube trays.
- Once the spinach mixture is frozen, pop out the ice cubes and add them to a freezer friendly bag or container along with the other ingredients.
- Once ready to make, simply add all of the frozen ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.
