Green Smoothie – using only 3 ingredients!!

by Adrianne

Green Smoothie – with only 3 ingredients, that sounds like a morning war cry to me…Green Smoothie, Green Smoothie, oh baby, let’s have a Green Smoothie to start our day off the right way (yooooooooooooooooow!!) 

Green Smoothie 3 | Sweet Caramel Sunday

How do I make a Green Smoothie recipe?

A green smoothie is super easy to make! You just need to have the right combination of ingredients, then blend it all up and go!

I realised today that I hadn’t given you guys my all time favourite Green Smoothie recipe. I couldn’t believe it and I had to check that twice as this smoothie has been a go to for me for a long, long time now. It is easy to make and has only 3 ingredients. It is a perfect way to start your day as it has a big hit of spinach and I know that on the days that I haven’t had one of these Green Smoothies for breakfast I don’t feel 1/2 as good as the days when I have.

Whilst it is winter here and I am regularly starting my day with my Raspberry Oat Smoothie, I know my friends in the U S of A are in their summer time, so I thought I would get to sharing it right away!

Green Smoothie 2 | Sweet Caramel Sunday

This is what I want from a breakfast smoothie:

  • Easy preparation
  • Tastes good and no ‘ugh’ feeling towards ‘healthy’
  • Nice colour (I have made so smoothies in my day that turned a funny colour, I am sure you have too)
  • Something that I won’t get bored of

This is why this Green Smoothie achieves those goals:

  • You can literally throw it all in one blender jug and blitz, no hard work involved.
  • The healthy greens of the spinach combined with the oh so sweet mango is a balanced way of saying ‘I got this…’
  • Super vibrant and green, enough said
  • I have literally made this millions of times and will make it millions more (you till too).

I know that when you give this recipe a whirl and then whip it up for yourself, you will want to make it over and over again.

Here is hoping you had a great hump day and are counting down to the weekend…..it seems SO close!!

  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves
  • 1 cup frozen mango pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut water
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds


  • Add spinach, mango and coconut water to blender jug and blitz to combine 
  • Top with chia seeds 


  1. I make this smoothie and drink it soon after. 
  2. You can keep it in the fridge for at least a day, however, it will start to loose the nice consistency of texture if left for too long. 
  3. You can also add KALE if you want even more greens.
  4. I regularly buy frozen mango pieces from the grocery store, they keep in the freezer really well and are oh so handy!!

Now, I want to fill your cook book with a few more ideas………..some of my favourite smoothies on SCS are:

On those mornings you want a little bit more than a liquid breakfast, why not combine a chia pudding with a smoothie mix and here is a recipe suggestion on how to do that………

Enjoy your Thursday and Friday, I am sure that you are just as excited about the coming weekend as I am…not long now!

I was sold at 3 ingredients! I love spinach smoothies, and the mango is such a great flavor!

Adrianne February 8, 2019 - 10:47 am

Thanks Danielle, me too!

Mango makes any smoothie better.

Cheers Megan! It does, doesn’t it!! Everyone loves a little mango in their day.

What brand of coconut water tastes good. I tried one brand and the taste was quite unpleasant so much so that I threw the rest of the contents away. I will appreciate suggestions.

Adrianne July 19, 2019 - 12:29 pm

Sorry Mary, I thought I responded to this the other day. I use the Woolworths or Aldi Homebrand products and I love them! Cheers

mary July 18, 2019 - 3:28 am

Is there a coconut water that tastes good? I tried one and it tasted terrible so I have been hesitant to purchase more as I threw the other one away.

Adrianne July 19, 2019 - 12:30 pm

I would recommend buying a small version if you can, it the can or small popper types. Then you can settle on the one you like best. Cheers.
