This smoothie looks very appealing to kids. I like to serve the drinks with spoons as well as straws because my children like to mix the different colors together and admire the colorful swirls. I like to add the “superfood” Spirulina, which is a microscopic blue-green algae and is a great source of chlorophyll, vitamin B12, vitamin K, vitamin A and antioxidants.
- 1 1/4 cups frozen mango pieces
- 1 cup fresh spinach
- 1 Spirulina tablet
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 frozen banana
- Place mango and banana into a blender with liquids and blend until smooth, adding more mango to thicken and more water or milk to thin.
- Pour 2/3 of the smoothie into a glass.
- Add spinach and Spirulina to the blender and blend until smooth. Pour slowly into the serving glass on top of the mango layer, making two layers.
