BM# 72: Week 1/ Day 1
Theme: Smoothies
Dish: Green Smoothie with Mango & Banana

Hope all of you had a lovely Holiday season. We had a wonderful time visiting friends and family. Lots of yummy food, great company and amazing times to cherish. Now that the holidays are over, it’s back to routine. We are starting a brand new edition of Blogging Marathon today. My theme for this week is ‘So Many Smoothies, so little time‘. Spinach and Mango Green SmoothieWhen I saw this theme, I know I had to take it up because after binge eating during theholidays, what better way to get back on track than to have some healthy smoothies. My husband and I love smoothies and make them quite often. Actually I think I’m too lazy to cook breakfast, so I make smoothies instead.
Spinach and Mango Green SmoothieSpinach and Mango Green SmoothieI have tried quite a few smoothie recipes, but not all taste good. They might be good in terms of nutrition but some of them taste too ‘healthy’ to make often. But over the years I found some combinations that I really like.
Spinach and Mango Green SmoothieThis Green smoothie is something that I make quite frequently with baby spinach and/ or baby kale. Initially adding greens to smoothies seemed waaay too ‘healthy’, but I’m used to the slightly flavor they impart. I love the vibrant green color the smoothie ends up being.Spinach and Mango Green SmoothieGreen Smoothie can be made with or without dairy/ non-dairy milk. But I personally like the creamy texture milk gives the smoothie. Without the milk, it turns out a little watery and doesn’t look very appealing. But the choice is up to you.Spinach and Mango Green Smoothie

  1. Awesome colour Pavani..love this recipe…I can think of only mango or chocolate when smoothie comes to mind..lol..looking forward to reading your different recipes!

  2. Gorgeous green ! I wish I was fond of smoothies too, but when it comes to milk or curd mixed with fruits, I just shy away.. But definitely very tempting as well as healthy.
