It’s the perfect time of year for this smoothie. Mangos are still available, the sun is helping the strawberries get sweet and the spinach is fresh and tender. The amount of strawberries really makes this smoothie shine. The pile might not look like a lot, but it’s probably more than four cups. Yet, because they tend towards the tart side, dates are pretty much in order here.
If you’ve got the strawberries, this one’s worth placing in the morning rotation.
- 1 large mango
- 4 large medjool dates
- 4 cups (or so) fresh garden strawberries (or the next best thing)
- ½ lb fresh young baby spinach
- 1 ½ cup rejuvelac
There really isn’t anything special about this combination. Just place all the fruit in the blender and liquefy.
After a couple seconds, it won’t have any lumps to get in the way of adding the greens. Do so and blend until creamy (that should be about 60 seconds on high). Makes around 7 cups smoothie.
The baby spinach is so mild that it doesn’t stomp on the essence of strawberry like a lot of other greens do. The mango works like a ripe banana making it all come out creamy.
This one is easy, easy, easy! And, best of all, everyone will thoroughly enjoy it.
