The atmosphere in our house is really intense – the teenagers are preparing for exams and they are studying
like crazy, really hard!
Green smoothies are the perfect energy kick to feed and nourish mind and body.
At this time of year, the stores are booming with fresh, soft, sweet and delicious mangos. They are the perfect snack and fantastic in green smoothies.
Here is a smoothie for the hard-working teens (or others) – a real kick of greens!
This smoothie is delicious. It’s sweet, intense, powerful and refreshing! A perfect way to boost your concentration and refresh your mind – as well as refreshing and anti-oxidizing your body.
Green Smoothie with Spinach, Mango, Lime and Mint
1 good handful of fresh spinach
2 ripe mangos
3-4 twigs of fresh mint
2 lime fruits
Put the peeled and roughly chopped fruit and herbs in the blender along with some ice and water. Blend until smooth, cool and fabulous.

Greens and smoothies ROCK!!
They really do don’t they – every time! 🙂
This sounds absolutely zummy! 🙂
Thank you LuAnn – so totally zummy 🙂
Love this green smoothie!
Thank you Amy – it was really good 🙂
I could use an energy kick right now…soooooo tired at the moment. This drink might be a great way to get rid of this bug that I am fighting off!
Ohh sorry!! I hope you will feel better soon!!! Green smoothies and juices are so great when you are fighting bugs and on the mend! Wish I could make one for you 🙂
We’ve got the green smoothie wavelength going, Anne! I’ve got a rogue mint plant and have been putting it in all of my smoothies lately – love the little zing it adds.
Mint is so fantastic – I didn’t like mint before unless it was in chocolate 🙂 but now I use it in everything and I love it in green smoothies – that little zing is so good!
What a perfect green smoothie 🙂

Thank you Uru friend 🙂
Wow! I never thought that spinach and mangoes can go well together in a drink. Great idea, Anne! 😉
No it sounds kind of funny doesn’t it – but you will be pleasantly surprised,I promise you 🙂 Fruits and leafy greens go so well together!
I got into green smoothies in a big way this year, loving it – mango is indeed particularly good and delicious for them.
Fantastic! I am addicted 🙂 love mango in green smoothies!
Thanks for stopping by!
I love that you put mint in this! I love fresh mint, so I’ll have to try this. Celeste 🙂
Yes I think you will love it Celeste! Mint is SO good in smoothies 🙂
Gorgeous pictures of the ingredients. I feel like I’m at the farmer’s market. Except not the one near my house. Like, a really, really good one. 🙂
Wonderful – thank you!! 🙂
I’m going to dream of these
Haha – I hope you dream and then wake up and make it 🙂
Thank you for stopping by!
This looks amazing Anne but I especially love the jar glasses! I have been enjoying kale and mint in my green smoothies lately 🙂
Thank you my friend!
Wonderful – kale and mint, love them in green smoothies too 🙂
My husband Peter & I drank these smoothies as our drinkable breakfast this morning! I am not yet very fond of green smoothies but these were delicious though!! x
Wow wonderful – I am so happy you actually enjoyed it too 🙂 Yayy, maybe it’s an acquired taste for you and one day you will be loving them 😉 I think the trick is in the beginning to add lots of fruits and just a little green.
Yum! This smoothie looks like the perfect mix of sweet, tangy and refreshing. I’ll have to try it!
Thank you Sarah – I hope you enjoy it 🙂
