Large Batch Green Smoothie
A large batch green smoothie made with apples, mangoes, ginger, cucumber and spinach. This smoothie is packed with vegetables and is perfect for a light breakfast or a quick snack. Plus, it stays fresh in the fridge for two days, so you can save the leftovers for a snack the next day!
- 2 cups baby spinach
- 2 medium apples, chopped
- 2 cups mangoes, frozen
- 2 cups English cucumber, chopped
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/2-1 tablespoon fresh ginger
- 2 tablespoons hemp hearts
- 1 1/2 cup water
- 6-8 ice cubes
This smoothie makes 3 large servings or 4 small servings.
To make this recipe higher in protein, you can add more hemp hearts to taste. This smoothie isn't made to be a filling breakfast. Instead, it's great enjoyed as a snack or as a "juice" with breakfast.
You can use kale instead of spinach if preferred. I would recommend starting with half of the suggested amount and increasing it to taste.
I used Gala apples. Use your favorite apples. There's no need to peel the apples, just remove the core.
If you don't like a strong ginger taste, start with 1/2 a tablespoon. You can also skip it if preferred.
