Strawberry Mango Spinach Smoothie
Strawberry Mango Spinach Smoothie- made with fresh strawberries, frozen mango, and baby spinach. Packed full of vitamin-C, vitamin-A and iron!
Hey guys! How was your weekend?
It was hot as ever here which sparked a craving for a big green smoothie. Somehow they make the heat seem a little more bearable, right? :)
This combo might be my new favorite. Frozen mango gives it a smooth creamy texture that’s perfectly sweet on it’s own so there’s no need for added sugars. Then there’s fresh strawberries which are in abundance right now and are begging to be eaten. I don’t know about you guys but I always buy mine organic and it feels like a race to try to eat them all before they go bad.
This smoothie = problem solved.
With all of the traveling I’ve been doing lately I want to keep my immune system in top-notch condition so I’ve been adding a scoop of MegaFood’s Daily C-Protect Nutrient Booster Powder to my smoothies every morning.
It offers a concentrated dose of vitamin-C sourced from whole organic oranges (you can literally smell them in the powder!), as well as polyphenolic compounds from farm fresh berries to help boost the immune system and support the body’s response to stress.*
While I’m a firm believer that you should get as many nutrients from your diet as you can, there are certain situations (such as traveling) that can make that hard to do. Also, because I don’t eat meat and I try to limit my intake of dairy, it can be challenging for me to meet my daily B-12 requirement. I always have specific supplements on-hand and MegaFood has been my favorite brand for years. I can always trust that they’re using high quality ingredients that are ethically sourced from farm fresh whole foods.
As you can imagine I was really excited when they recently reached out to me to become an ambassador for them this year! Being able to partner with a brand that I already use and love is like a dream come true. I’ll be able to tour their facility in New Hampshire to learn all about how their supplements are made and you’ll also see a few more recipes featuring their awesome Nutrient Booster Powders over the coming months!
If you’re looking for a healthy and delicious way to cool off then I hope you’ll give this smoothie a try!
The flavor is super refreshing and with a hefty dose of vitamin-C, you’ll be glowing all day long. It’s a win-win situation. :)

Those pictures are beautiful! I was happy to see that the Vitamin B-12 you’re taking it Methyl B12. I don’t know if you’ve heard about MTHFR but it makes it much more difficult to absorb B12 and folic acid. I was tested and have a double mutation so luckily I’m on the right supplements now after taking the wrong ones for so long.
I didn’t even realize that! I’ve heard of MTHFR but I wasn’t aware there was a specific kind of B-12 for it. Good to know. Thanks Kelli!
Hi Kelli, My son has Methylmalonic Acidemia Mut 0. He is b12 responsive. Good to know what I can put in his smoothies. Thank you!
I’ve been drinking tons of smoothies lately and this powder sounds like it might be a good option for me. I became anemic a few months ago and I was really surprised since I eat so many iron-rich foods. My dr suggested I up my Vit C to aid absorption, so this would be a good way to make sure I’m getting enough.. And perfect in a smoothie with spinach or other iron sources.
I’m sorry to hear you’re anemic, Jill. I agree this smoothie sounds like a great option for you. Hopefully you can things straightened out!
This smoothie looks like absolute perfection! I love the strawberry-mango combo and the spinach + vitamin C booster is such a fabulous idea for staying strong and healthy. Definitely going to follow suit and infuse my morning smoothies with extra nutrients!
Hooray for excellent brands and partnering with those you love! Alchemy, Sarah! What a delicious smoothie too. I love the mix of spinach and mango.. a perfect pair. I’m with ya on the Strawberries. We buy ours from just down the street, from the farm and if we don’t eat them within a day, I’m freezing them. They go bad so fast! Refrigeration doesn’t work either… I tend to over buy anyway.. so I end up scrambling to de-stem and throw em in the freezer. Thank you for sharing Mega Foods! I’ll check em out!
Thanks Traci! The organic strawberries might be a pain but they’re definitely worth it! ;)
I try to get most of my nutrients from the foods I eat too, but I totally don’t mind taking vitamins for a bit of extra insurance. Can’t hurt, right? :D And when your vitamins come in a deliciously refreshing green smoothie? Now that’s a beautiful thing :D
It definitely can’t hurt. Thanks girly!
Yum! This looks incredible!
haha the race is definitely always on to eat all the fresh strawberries before they go bad!
I am a total smoothie monster right now and this sounds delicious! Love that extra boost of nutrition from the powder – I try to get everything from food but it can be so hard sometimes (travel, too much eating out, etc.!)
I only buy the organic strawberries too and sometimes I have to eat the whole carton in one day so they don’t go bad, but I don’t mind at all! It’s bee SO hot here lately and all I’ve watned to do is drink cold drinks and eat fruit, so this smoothie checks both those boxes off!
You poor thing, having to be pregnant in this heat! I hope that little man comes when he’s supposed to!
Gorgeous photos! Love the mango in here, and the spinach… and the strawberries (so everything!). I’m always trying to get b12 so I’m excited about your new partnership :) That powder sounds perfect!
Thanks Medha! Yes, it is so important that us vegetarians get enough B12. I take one every day! :)
I’m with you — green smoothies make the heat more bearable! This is the perfect way to use up those strawberries that are on their way out, and I love the sound of that Mega Food powder. Congrats on your new partnership, Sarah, and can’t wait to hear more about the brand!
Sarah this smoothie is beautiful! I definitely agree! Summer heat calls for refreshing smoothies! Looks amazing! Hope that you’re week is going great!
Ok that is one majorly gorgeous smoothie! I LOVE that color! So perfect for summer :)

You have no idea how badly I need this smoothie…I ate my weight in fried food this weekend, I can’t even think about it…That gorgeous green color is making me swoon!
This recipe looks awesome! Thinking of making this at the weekend. Pinning :)
Thanks Puja! :)
Oooh I love this combo! I haven’t had mangos in forever, so now you’ve got me craving them for sure!
Frozen mango is my favorite smoothie ingredient! It makes them so creamy. Congrats on becoming an ambassador!!
It really does! Thanks Emilie! :)
I followed the recipe exactly, and my smoothie turned out to be an olive/ moss green brown color. It tastes good, but my husband has to close his eyes to drink it. It does not look appetizing at all.
Next time try using less strawberries. The red is what turns the green a brown color.
Every time I make a “green” smoothie that incorporates ingredients that aren’t specifically green or yellow, whether it be strawberries, blueberries, etc., they ALWAYS turn into a brownish color. That’s color theory at work. Always makes me question how much of these alternate colored items were actually used in the beautiful recipe pictures.
That said, they usually taste great and putting them into an opaque blender bottle solves the visual aspect, if it bothers you.
I made it and loved it! THANK YOU for the recipe. I used a cold fresh mango, cold strawberries and no ice.,,Plenty cold.
So glad you enjoyed it! Thanks Linda!

I’m curious about vitamin powders now ladies. I’m a breast cancer survivor, so what are good things to add in any smoothies. Certain fruits or veggies, or powders ? I love smothies, I don’t do milk. But use almond milk. Still get bloating from smoothies. Any suggestions? Thanks
Is ice necessary, as well as are there any implications with frozen spinach vs fresh? I love love love green smoothies but don’t necessarily care to use ice or protein powder if I don’t have to…any subs or suggestions? Is the almond milk necessary as well or could coconut water be used? Sorry, want to make this so badly and thinking of things I currently have at home so I don’t think I could get that powder on time but would love something at home for it in place of a powder? :)
Hey Rachel! You can make it without the powder. It won’t effect the flavor at all, that’s just for an extra vitamin boost. I personally prefer to use fresh but frozen spinach will work just fine. I would just use 1 cup instead of 3 since there is a lot more packed in with frozen spinach.
You can also leave out the ice but will need to use more of a frozen ingredient like mango (or frozen strawberries). Maybe like a small handful extra. Coconut water can be used in place of almond milk as well.
I hope that answers all of your questions! :)
you’re amazing, thank you! would those modifications alter the taste much at all? I don’t guess I could use almond butter in place of the powder since typically that’s in smoothies w/ bananas right? trying to be a pro and get better at this :)
You could add a tablespoon of almond butter if you want but like I said, the powder doesn’t need to be replaced. It’s just a booster.
The modifications will alter the taste but it should still be good! :)
