Just compare the calories in my orange mango green smoothie to those of a shop bought one. You’ll see the difference!

When you compare this smoothie to that shop bought one, also look at their ingredients. I can pretty much guarantee there will be some you’ll question.

Sugar? Syrup? Preservatives? Flavourings?

Yep, well we’ve none of these here. In fact, if you miss out the optional 2 ingredients, you’ll need just 4 ingredients to make this. Plus it’ll take you literally minutes.

The refreshing combination of the combined mango and orange juice and the added goodness from the spinach and the celery make this a perfect addition to your smoothie list.

So where did this orange mango green smoothie recipe come from?

Well, it was inspired by a recent trip to a coffee bar in Glasgow.

I’ve got Lady Lynne to thank here for her choosing a green smoothie there. That set me off thinking how could I recreate that delicious combo of mango and spinach in my own green smoothie.

That’s the reason for this orange mango green smoothie today.

But Why is this Orange Mango Green Smoothie More for Less?

So, remember what I said when I signed off to you in the feta and lemon quinoa recipe? “Less is more“?

Take this recipe. You’ve basically got 4 ingredients (less than any shop bought equivalent I could find) giving you this vitamin C boosting low calorie orange mango green smoothie.

And the cost. This was less than £2 to make. I made Lady Lynne and I a serving each. An equivalent one in a local store is £3 so, £6 for us both.

Making this smoothie from scratch and paying less gave me more. It gave me more money in my pocket and it also gave me a huge vitamin C boost from a less calorific smoothie than I could find in a store .

Here, the 80/20 rule is about getting more from less.

It works in all manners of life. Health, wealth and happiness.

It’s a rule to keep in your head. How can I get more from less?

Folks, when you read this I’ll be on a short break with Lady Lynne to Liverpool. Keep your fingers crossed that the sun comes out a little for us, so I can share some pictures with you on my return!

All our holidays this year are low cost “staycations” already paid for in advance as we save up for our huge trip next year to Hawaii. 🙂

Hawaii, in March 2017 seems quite far off at the moment but it’s good to have something like that to work towards. It makes all the hard work and long hours that Lynne and I do have a purpose.

What are you working towards / looking forward to?

      Ha ha! Brilliant, thanks Rachel. It’s about as close to a tropical island I’ll get to at the moment! 🙂

  2. O I’m liking that it’s orange juice based!
    I’m really just not a smoothie person though 😛

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Here in Glasgow, we need as much vitamin C from that orange juice as we can get. We haven’t seen the sun in days. 😉

  3. I love orange based smoothies. I make them all the time. Need to try this mango flare!

      Thanks Megan! 🙂 I hope you’ll enjoy this one. Orange and mango just go so well together don’t you think?

  4. Oooh what a tasty green smoothie, Neil! I love your combo of orange/mango/celery and spinach! Deliciousness! And March 2017 will be here before you know it! I’m saving for a trip to your neck of the woods next year – or at least close by – fingers crossed!
    Hope y’all have a wonderful time in Liverpool!

      Thanks Shashi. We’re just on our last day in Liverpool now and time has flown by this week, so yeah, I think you are totally right, it’ll very soon be March 2017!

      It would be so good if you can make it over here sometime next year and we can hopefully meet up somewhere! 😀

  5. Thisssssss looks like it will take your mouth on a vacation to the TROPICS!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      And having been to Scotland GiGi, you will know why it’s vital that I make smoothies like this, because it isn’t anything like the tropics here, is it? 😉
