Tips

When making the green juice, it is crucial to thoroughly wash the kale and spinach leaves first to remove any dirt or grit.

Tips

From scratch or the easy way? You choose! Fresh apple juice will give that ideal tartness, although store-bought apple juice works fine as well. Choose your favourite, whether it is homemade or store-bought, or if it is made from sour or sweet apples.

Tips

Of course, the ideal time to enjoy your smoothie is immediately after making it. This ensures you experience the best taste and consistency. However, if you wish to save it for later in the day, you can store the smoothie and juice in separate airtight containers or jars in the fridge. Just remember to give them a good shake before adding the juice to the smoothie and drinking it.

What is in the green juice in a mango smoothie?
Our green juice for the mango smoothie contains apple juice, kale leaves, spinach leaves, and fresh lemon balm leaves. The tartness of apple and the earthiness of kale and spinach contrast with the sweet, tropical flavour of mango. Lemon balm lends a refreshing note. These ingredients add a flavourful punch and make the smoothie more balanced in taste and texture. You can also use other leafy greens, broccoli, cucumber, lime, mint, or ginger – all of these and more work well in green juices!
Do you use fresh or frozen mango in a smoothie?
Both fresh and frozen mangoes can be used in a smoothie. Fresh mangoes provide a vibrant and slightly more pronounced flavour. However, we recommend using frozen ones as they lend a thicker, creamier texture to the smoothie and keep it cool. But the choice between fresh and frozen primarily depends on personal preference and availability.
How long will a mango green smoothie last?
A mango green smoothie can typically last in the fridge for 1-2 days. However, it is best when enjoyed immediately after preparation to maintain the best taste and texture. Over time, the smoothie can separate and lose its freshness. It should be stored in an airtight container and shaken or stirred before drinking it.

Creamy skyr and sweet mango

What makes this mango smoothie so irresistible? It all starts with the dream team of sweet, tropical mango and the smooth tanginess of skyr. Together, they whip up into a delightful, tasty, and silky-smooth blend. Frozen mango amps up the tropical sweetness while adding a nice chill. Skyr brings an inimitable creamy tang that beautifully boosts the overall flavour. A dash of milk steps in to round everything off, giving the drink a velvety touch. This results in a smooth drink that leaves a delightful creamy aftertaste behind. Simple, but oh so tasty!

Add a burst of colour with green spinach and kale juice

The addition of green spinach and kale juice takes the mango smoothie to another level – both in terms of looks and taste. It is a dynamic blend of apple juice, kale, and spinach leaves, spiced up and refreshed with fresh lemon balm leaves. It does not just add a splash of colour; it introduces an irresistible freshness to the drink. The apple juice adds a subtle tartness that complements the sweet smoothie wonderfully. The kale and spinach both lend an earthy taste, while the lemon balm leaves introduce a refreshing note that lightens the overall taste. With a light swirl, the green juice creates an exciting contrast to the yellow smoothie in terms of colour and flavour.
