Health in a glass, your entire family will love this sweet and tart smoothie. Packed with nutrients and protein, you’ll get long-lasting energy with every sip.
My friends call me the Smoothie Queen and I am more than honored to wear that crown. About the only thing I love more than starting my day with a smoothie is hearing my toddler request a “moo-thie”. I tell you what, that kid will eat anything blended into a creamy smoothie! Kale, parsley, ginger, you name it.
Speaking of smoothie ingredients, I’m sure most of you are down with juicy mangoes, sweet blueberries and tart lime juice but I beg you to also include the parsley and ginger. Not only are they natural detoxifiers and packed with nutrients, but they add bright, grassy, slightly spicy flavor that really complements the banana and other fruit flavors.
If you don’t have a lime, a lemon will work. Let’s be honest, a lemon always works. It just does.
Your straw is waiting.

hey Liz sweet lady, its been almost a year since i’ve been on your site, but last summer was in love with 2 of your delish oat breads, and my baking has several smoothies, and just made the b’berry cinnamon smoothie but needed to add some honey, but its refreshing! my baking this summer has been problem, have had to discard alot, as my pretty new FRIGIDAIRE has been a lemon since purchased so freezer is solid ice and fridge isnt colling appropriately, so can’t freeze anything right now, but still have 1/2 of your wonderful peach oat bread frozen in the back, jammed in by a huge chuck of solid ice, a real mess! becausw of covid and the fact that i gift most things i make much and parts of several pastries, sadly! anyway i save all the copies of your blog/podcast, but havent had a chance to watch; hope your 2 boys r growing nicely, and thx again for all of your fantastic recipe:); kelli
Hi Kelli! It is so great to hear from you – so glad you’re back!!! I hope you make another recipe of mine again soon! :) Let me know if you do ok?
Love this Liz ~ pinning & sharing on Facebook today!
Thank you so much Marla!
And now I realize I commented in the wrong spot. ;) Sorry ’bout that. Oh dear :). Anyway, This smoothie looks amazing! I love that you’re using lime, parsley and ginger. I imagine this tastes so fresh! Pinned! :)
No worries!!! :)
wow, I love this smoothie, blueberry and mango=perfect combo.
I couldn’t agree more – thank you!!
I totally agree with the ginger. I don’t leave it out if I want my smoothie to be spicy and sexy, especially when I’m down with a fever or something. It wakes up me up in an instant. But speaking of that spicy kick, Moringa leaves would make a great alternative.
I made a berry ginger smoothie last week but I definitely didn’t add parsley. Interesting! I like how your smoothies are so full of healthy stuff. I just want something sweet (and am lazy) and forego all that other stuff. ;)
You would like my smoothie today then… ;)
The Smoothie Queen, huh. Well that got me looking a bit more around your site and you know I think they may be right. I pinned quite a few of your concoctions. I finally saw a Ninja in actions. I became a believer and am on the outlook for smoothie recipes. The color of this one alone would cause me to drink it with appreciation.
haha Thank you so much Carol!
I bow to you, oh smoothie queen! This is genius! I always want more mango in my life.
Really delicious! I need one now!
I’m going to need one of these this weekend for sure!
Cheers to the long weekend!
Love the mango lime combo! This smoothie needs to getting added to my morning smoothie rotation ASAP!
I hope you try it – we love it!!
Wow. I would definitely call you a smoothie queen. Definitely keeping this in my back pocket for when it gets super hot out.
Aww Thank you!! I’ll gladly wear that crown!
I am always up for trying new smoothie recipes, I am not a big fan of eating vegetables but I sure love drinking them!
Same with my husband!!
Things I love: Finding a gorgeous looking smoothie recipe and learning that you have EVERY INGREDIENT needed to make it that very second <3
