Spinach-Mango Green Smoothie

Serves 2

2 small oranges: peel, cut in quarters and remove seeds (or juice the oranges if you prefer)
1 oz walnuts (or cashews or pecans) or seeds (hemp, sunflower, or pumpkin)
5 oz spinach
1 10 oz bag frozen mangos
frozen banana

Put the walnuts and part of orange juice blender. Add the spinach on top. Blend. Add everything else and blend again.

If you use 5 oz of spinach, you can't taste it, and it tastes like a delicious mango-orange-banana smoothie. Then you can get brave and use the stronger greens like salad greens, kale, and collard greens. A little lemon juice balances the bitter of these stronger greens (say, 1 Tbsp).

I usually freeze one or both servings for later.
