Step 1 – Slice & Freeze the Fruit
Slice a banana to make banana coins and freeze. A good way to do this is to lay the banana coins flat on a plate until frozen and then transfer to another bag or container so that the pieces don’t all stick together. Dice a mango into medium-small chunks and freeze. Allow the fruit to freeze for several hours or overnight. The frozen fruit eliminates the need for ice cubes and adds a creamy texture to the smoothie.
Step 2 – Blend
Put the frozen banana and the mango in a high-speed blender. Add 1 1/2 cups almond, soy or hemp milk. Blend until creamy.
Step 3 – Add Greens
Add 3 cups loosely packed spinach and blend again until the spinach turns the whole smoothie a bright green. At this point you can serve the smoothie as is or blend in a few teaspoons of agave to make sweeter.
