Searching for the Unicorn of Green Smoothies?

I was given a challenge by my kids… find a green smoothie that doesn’t taste like a green smoothie.  Confused? Yep… I was too.  I personally love green smoothies and green juices but I know that when it comes to kids, their taste buds want sweet, yummy and fruity.  So we were on the hunt for the unicorn of green smoothies.  Just when I thought it was impossible, I found a combination that could be exactly what I was looking for.

Packed with spinach, this smoothie includes good for you foods like banana, mango, freshly squeezed orange juice and coconut milk.  I added some maple syrup for a little added sweetness and topped with shredded coconut.  My husband and I loved it!  It had been so long since we had a green smoothie and it was like seeing an old friend.

My Kids Opinion.

My kids?  Well, they didn’t share the sentiment.  Unfortunately, it was “too spinachy” though if you’ve ever had a smoothie with spinach in it, you’ll probably agree that you can’t really taste the spinach.  While they love cooked spinach, they just can’t be convinced that raw spinach is good too. But don’t think I’m giving up on that one!  I’m already working on another one to change their mind!

Low in fat and even lower in cholesterol, spinach is high in niacin and zinc, as well as protein, fiber, vitamins A, C, E and K, thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, and manganese. In other words, it’s loaded with good things for every part of your body!*

  5. This looks like amazing smoothie. I would love to try this for sure. Thanks for the recipe

  6. Mango coconut?? Sounds amazing! And smoothies are for sure the easiest way to sneak some greens in on your kiddos. My girls don’t even blink anymore at what we call the ‘Mean Green Smoothie’ with lots of fruits in it to keep the ‘green’ from being overpowering.

  7. This looks so healthy and delicious! Something I’d want to drink. I love how easy it’s to make.

  8. This looks fabulous. My only question is how coconut-y is it? I have tried and tried and coconut is not my favorite thing. I can cook with coconut milk because I generally can’t taste it. I will have to check this out!

  16. i don’t usually like coconut but I do like coconut milk. THis sounds so good. Something I would like right now!

  17. I’m saving this recipe for my son. He is lactose intolerant and loves smoothies. He doesn’t mind spinach, so I think he’ll really like this.

  18. OOH YUM THIS DOES SOUND SO TASTY! I LOVE MANGO AND HAVE A DAIRY INTOLERANCE SO IT COULDNT BE ANY MORE PERFECT REALLY!

  19. This sounds yummy! I love mango and with it having coconut milk the coconut would be mild which is good in my book. haha.

  22. Now this sounds like a smoothie I need to try. I have to admit I love mango and coconut and the addition of greens well I’m willing to give them a go for this.

  23. I love smoothies and this one looks so good. Smoothies are my way of packing lots of nutrition into my body.

  24. This is perfect and looks so good, I’m always looking out for new recipes for us to make. Milk doesn’t agree with my husband’s stomach so it just makes life easier when we stick to dairy free recipes.

  29. This looks really delicious and nutritious I will try it on my boy, he already knows that peas make him run faster lol I know I needed to get a lie from somewhere so this will another option for him to try.

  30. Looks like a really healthy and delicious smoothie! I have to incorporate more green smoothies in my diet, and I will start off with your recipe. I’m going to get some mangoes at the store today.

  31. This looks so good! I personally try to use dairy free alternatives wherever possible so definitely wouldn’t be using dairy in my smoothies. I love coconut milk though!

  32. So refreshing I have all this ingredients at home. I definitely want to try this weekend. Juicing is my life even its cold outside.

  33. It can be hard to mask the taste of spinach in a smoothie or even coconut for that matter given both are such powerful flavors. I love green smoothies and I sometimes use kale instead of spinach to mix things up.

  34. I must say that even though I love smoothies, I am with your kids on not liking the flavor of green ones. I can see where this would be appealing for some folks that didn’t like traditional green smoothies.

  35. I’ve never been able to get into the green smoothie trend. Maybe this recipe will be the one to change that!

  36. I love green smoothies, I always add lots of spinach! I have never added mango to mine so i need to try that.

  37. It looks like such a good recipe. I think the mango would make it taste really tropical and I wouldn’t even taste the spinach at all.

  38. Yum! This sounds absolutely delicious – I be the mango and coconut taste absolutely delicious together as well.

  39. Yum, this sounds like a smoothie I’d enjoy. I haven’t had a smoothie in ages. I’ll be making this soon!

  40. I’m definitely bookmarking this. I’m cutting dairy out of my diet this year, so I need more smoothies without it.

  41. I’m with your kids on green smoothies, however, I think this one sounds really good. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I might be able to join the adult world with this green smoothie!

  42. I love green smoothies! Smoothies in general are a great way to get a lot of nutrients packed into a breakfast, lunch, or snack.

  43. This is exactly what I am looking for. I am working on eating healthier and learning more about nutrition and something like this would also hit my sweet tooth which is what is my biggest problem. TJ
