This Sunshine Smoothie is going to rock your world!
We’re all trying to get more fruits and veggies into our diets. Good news-it doesn’t have to be hard.
In fact it as easy as drinking this smoothie!
Don’t be put off by the bold, beautiful, green color. This smoothie is actually sweet. Fueled by the flavors of mango and pineapple with a touch of orange. And that sweet flavor is why my youngest named it the Sunshine Smoothie!
But let me tell you about my secret weapon. SPINACH! This secret weapon adds vitamin K, folate, calcium, iron, and vitamin C. Not to mention the fiber! Best of all-you can’t taste it! My kids eat spinach by the cupful and they (initially) didn’t even know they were doing it!
What we used to make the Sunshine Smoothie:

Vitamix 5200-My mom and my mother in law joined forces one year to buy me this for my birthday. It is one of my very favorite presents ever. I don’t make a cent from Vitamix (although I’d really love to change that!), but this truly is one of my most prized kitchen appliances. This machine is one of the work horses of my kitchen.
Smoothie Tumblers– These tumblers with straws were a great find on Amazon (and I bought my first set a few years ago). I still use them almost daily. They are perfect for smoothies or for my morning cold brew. Plus they come in cute colors and patterns!
Tall Ball Jars– These tall jars are perfect for storing the leftover smoothies (if you have any), and are also perfect for storing dressings or other sauces (because I love kitchen gear that can serve multiple purposes!).
Instacart– I also don’t make a dime from Instacart, but this is my absolute favorite, most useful, life hack. I rarely go grocery shopping anymore, since I can order my groceries to be delivered to my house! And when I was on vacation last week- I ordered groceries to be delivered right when we got back so at least I would have something to give the kids for breakfast this morning.
So go ahead and make this Sunshine Smoothie today!
This Sunshine Smoothie will bring you a whole host of nutrients in an easily portable glass. And did I mention that it tastes delicious?
- 1 navel orange peeled
- 1 cup almond milk
- 2 cups baby spinach leaves
- 16 ounces frozen mango chunks
- 16 ounces frozen pineapple chunks
Add the orange, spinach, and almond milk to a blender. Blend until smooth.
Add frozen mango chunks. Blend until smooth.
Add frozen pineapple chunks. Blend until smooth.
Pour into tall glasses and prepare to share with your friends!
I buy the frozen mango and frozen pineapple in 16 ounce bags, making it easy to pull them from the freezer and dump into the blender-no measuring required.
Allergic to almonds? No problem! You can use coconut milk, water or if you are OK with dairy, you can substitute regular milk.
This makes approximately 7 cups of smoothie-enough for 5 people to have 1.5 cups each.
