Spinach has long had a reputation as a super food (remember Pop-eye?). It's a great source of carotenoids like beta-carotene which promote eye health. It's also rich in vitamin C and Vitamin K, magnesium and iron (although the absorption of iron is fairly poor). Teamed up with apple and mango this smoothie will meet all your vitamin C needs and give you a good hit of gut loving fibre too.
Happy smoothie making and remember to let me know what you think of this smoothie by tagging me on instagram @nudie_rudie_lunchbox !
