For a green smoothie with tropical vibes, reach for sweet and tart frozen mango and energizing coconut water (perfect for refueling after a workout). The use of frozen fruit makes this mango and spinach smoothie recipe a no-brainer to throw together on busy mornings, and a big handful of greens packs in the nutrients. While a ripe banana adds creaminess and sweetness, a frozen banana lends a slushier vibe, if that’s your thing (just remember to chop it up before putting it in the freezer).

You can use fresh spinach or kale here — or a mix — and it’s fine to use either young or mature leafy greens as long as they’re bright green and unblemished. When adding leafy greens to your smoothie, it’s imperative to use a high-speed blender like a Vitamix to get a creamy smoothie without any unattractive chunks. And don’t throw away those stems! They provide extra fiber and their toughness disappears once flashed.

Feel free to play with this basic recipe to make your favorite breakfast smoothie: Add a dose of healthy fats with a dollop of almond butter, mixed nut butter, or half an avocado. Make it a high-protein smoothie with some Greek yogurt or a scoop of your favorite protein powder. Spoon in some chia seeds for fiber. Adjust the flavor with your sweetener of choice (honey, agave, etc.). Prefer a creamier smoothie? Replace the coconut water with unsweetened almond milk or the alternative milk of your choice.

Working with fresh mango? Read our guide to slicing mango before you get started, and freeze the fruit for at least 2 hours before blending into a smoothie that stays frosty from first sip to last.
