Green smoothies are awesome. All the goodness of fruit plus the nutrient density of dark greens! This tropical green smoothie’s got a bit of a twist, with a healthy dose of cilantro adding a bit of a spicy kick to the mix.

Not everyone likes cilantro. This is an unfortunate and curious biological fact. Other people seem like they can’t get enough of it. But don’t worry, if cilantro isn’t you thing, this smoothie still rocks without it. You could substitute a little bit of jalapeno if you want a slightly different take on a spicy tropical green smoothie.

This is a particularly awesome breakfast smoothie. Super nutritious way to start your day, plus the invigorating aroma of cilantro!

  1. In a blender pour 1 cup of the mango juice with the chopped cilantro and swiss chard. Blend on high until the green leaves are blended to a liquid. (Depending on your blender quality there could still be some little pieces, but it should be mostly blended.)
  2. Turn off blender and add the banana, avocado and mango. Cover and blend again on high.
  3. Once all the smoothie starts to thicken add the last 1/2 cup of juice and 1/2 cup of water to thin the beverage. Blend one last time to incorporate.

  1. Sounds delicious and I’d love to try it, but the Trader Joe’s juice is a pasteurized product, no? (Isn’t all store-bought packaged juice pasteurized?)

    Hi Dave,

    You could be right. You could always substitute with whatever your favorite juice is, I don’t imagine there’s anything particularly special about Trader Joe’s.

    Or better yet, if you’ve got a juicer you can juice up your own mangoes!
