Tropical Mango-Spinach smoothie (Dairy-free +Gluten-free)


Growing up I was always fond of Mangoes. I mean look at them, how on earth can anyone not love them! Back in Bhilwara, Alphnonso didn't make appearance often. Even then father always made sure that I got to relish them during season. Not only are they juicy and delicious, they are ideal for people who are anaemic. Apart from being a yum tropical fruit, mango is high in Vit C and Vit A.


Mumbai is over flowing with Alphonso variety of mangoes. I wait for summers to start and get that first batch of mangoes in house. You really have to see my eyes glowing at the sight of mangoes. That being said, I am here to talk about this Tropical Mango-spinach smoothie I made other day and not about my craze for mangoes.


I love smoothies. There is just so many variations which can be tried. Strawberry season has just ended in India and I am already missing this Strawberry smoothie which I have been having for the past 4 months. This layered tropical mango-spinach smoothie is hydrating and easy to make. It is an ideal filling on-the-go-breakfast. Creamy, delicious and healthy emulsion of mango and banana taken up a notch by adding fresh raw spinach. Trust me when I am saying this that you won't notice or taste spinach at all. Oh and did I mention that it is dairy-free and gluten-free too! It is so creamy that you can even freeze it and have it as in ice-cream.
