I’m hoping January 1st was a soft deadline for setting New Year’s resolutions, because, per my life battle with tardiness, I’m running a wee bit behind schedule. Although my final list is still taking shape, I’m excited to share today’s Mango Green Smoothie, because it inspired the first resolution on my list: to do one small thing each day that brings me extra joy.

4 Ingredient Mango Green Smoothie — Tastes like a tropical vacation! Sweet, creamy, healthy and filled with vitamins. Kids love it too! {vegan, gluten free, and dairy free with no sugar added!}

Last year, I was super ambitious with my 2015 resolutions, and while I made progress on a few—I’ve finally gotten serious about lifting weights and feel I’ve made some improvements in the patience department too—looking back, I should have done a better job of setting goals that were a) measurable and b) reasonably attainable.

This year, I’m going to focus on small actions that will improve my everyday happiness and health: calling a friend to say hi; doing a set of pushups; reading a short news article; sipping a Mango Green Smoothie. At the end of the day, I hope to take 40 seconds to record these “bright acts” in a small notebook. Even if I never reread them, at least I will have taken a moment to reflect on the joyful moments in my day.

4 Ingredient Mango Green Smoothie Recipe—Tastes like a tropical vacation! Even kids love this sweet and creamy healthy green smoothie.

If brightness and positive change could be translated into a recipe, it would be this 4 Ingredient Mango Green Smoothie. It’s made with simple ingredients, comes together in seconds, and is jam-packed with vitamin C, vitamin K, potassium, calcium, and more. It’s also vegan, completely naturally sweetened, and gluten free.

Plus, it tastes like a tropical vacation, no sunscreen or expensive plane required.

4 Ingredient Mango Green Smoothie. Sweet, creamy, and healthy too! This tropical smoothie is vegan, gluten free and free of added sugars too.

The four easy ingredients in this paradise-worthy Mango Green Smoothie are:

  • Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk Cashewmilk Blend. It’s incredibly rich and creamy but contains only 25 tiny calories for a whole cup. I love the extra body that it gives my smoothies, the light vanilla flavor, and the fact that one glass contains 45% of my calcium for the day. If you are already a fan of almond milk, you’ll love this new blend with cashews, and if you haven’t tried nut milk yet, this Mango Green Smoothie is the perfect reason!
  • Frozen mango chunks: If you are new to green smoothies, adding mango is an especially good way to start, because it covers the taste of the greens completely. They’re sweet, delightfully tropical, and make the smoothie nice and thick, no ice required.
  • Banana: Have an extra banana or four sitting on your counter? This Mango Green Smoothie is the perfect way to use them. Because the frozen mango is already so thick, you don’t even need to freeze the banana slices first.
  • Spinach: Raise your right pinky, because we are making a pact. I pinky swear to you right here, right now that you absolutely cannot taste the spinach in this recipe. Although it makes the smoothie nice and green (which will remind you how healthy you are being), all you will taste is the tropical flavors of the mango and banana.

The best mango green smoothie recipe. Even kids love it!

Tip: if you are serving the Mango Green Smoothie to kids and don’t want to give away the “secret ingredient,” pour the smoothie into an opaque cup with a straw. They won’t be able to see the green and will love the smoothie’s sweet, fruity taste.
