Orange mango green smoothie is only 185 calories per serving. It’s delicious refreshing and dairy free. With added spinach and a whopping vitamin C content this is a great way to start your day!
An orange mango green smoothie, what else could be so appealing and healthy looking to kick start your day the right way?
It’s so low in calories, that it’s an ideal smoothie you can drink alongside your porridge with blueberries and almonds. It’ll compliment that bowl of nutrition without an additional calorie overload!
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.

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 shop bought green smoothie in a local store is £3 so that would have been £6 for us both. I saved us £4!
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.
