CAN YOU PUT RAW SPINACH IN A SMOOTHIE?
You can absolutely add raw spinach into a smoothie. In fact, it’s an easy and healthy way to eat more spinach!
I love to freeze a bag of spinach to always have on hand for smoothies. All you need to do is give the spinach a rinse, dry it in a salad spinner and place it in a ziplock bag in the freezer.

SPINACH MANGO SMOOTHIE SUBSTITUTIONS & TIPS
FROZEN FRUIT & VEG: I always use frozen fruits and vegetables in my smoothies. I find they give my smoothies a thick, frosty texture and also help keep my smoothie cool. If you only have fresh on hand and want to make this right away, just pop a handful of ice cubes into the blender.
MILK: Choose any milk you enjoy. I generally make this smoothie with soy, but have also tried almond and cow’s milk and all tasted great.
YOGHURT: I’ve used both vanilla yoghurt and greek yoghurt for this recipe and had great results with both. If your yoghurt isn’t sweetened you might want to add a tsp or two of your favourite liquid sweetener into the mix. If you need your smoothie to be dairy free / vegan, opt for a coconut yoghurt, or omit entirely and just add a little less milk.
SMOOTHIE BOOSTERS: I love adding chia seeds and flaxseed oil to my smoothies for an extra nutritional boost. If you don’t have these on hand feel free to leave them out.
WHAT BLENDER SHOULD I USE?
Investing in a high performance blender is a great idea if you make smoothies often. You don’t need to spend lots of money either. My Ninja Mega Kitchen System was around $150 and it’s still going strong after 4 years.
I know one thing that deters people from making smoothies is having to wash up the blender jug. I use the cup attachment on our Ninja and it is so easy! Once I’ve blended my smoothie I just pop it in the dishwasher. Simple!

- 1/4 cup frozen mango slices

- a handful frozen spinach leaves
- 250 mls / 1 cup milk

- BLENDING: I use the cup attachment of my blender when making a smoothie. It's easier to clean than the jug and perfect for a single serve. If you don't have a cup attachment, the jug works exactly the same.
- FROZEN FRUIT & VEG: If you don't have frozen fruit & veg on hand and want to sub for fresh, just add a handful of ice cubes into the blender.
- MILK: Choose any milk you enjoy.
- YOGHURT: Feel free to sub vanilla yoghurt for plain greek yoghurt. If your yoghurt isn't sweetened you might want to add a tsp or two of your favourite liquid sweetener into the mix. You can also sub for coconut yoghurt to make the smoothie vegan / dairy free. Or omit entirely and use a little less milk.
