Are you looking for a tasty and different green smoothie recipe? Try this tasty orange spinach smoothie! It’s a creamy smoothie made with fresh mandarin oranges and baby spinanch.
I came up with this orange spinach smoothie recipe when I wanted a change from our trusty standby, the strawberry banana green smoothie.
Kid-friendly mandarin orange smoothie recipe
This green smoothie recipe is great because it utilizes both fresh and frozen fruit. It brings a completely different flavor and hides the spinach taste nicely (just like these kid-friendly spinach muffins). The combination of mandarin orange and pineapple is perfect for closing your eyes and pretending you’re on a beach somewhere. At least, that’s what I like to do.
Orange Spinach Smoothie
We love making green smoothies with spinach because it adds a great dose of healthy nutrients and has a mild flavor. It also blends well – even when making your mandarin smoothie in a cheap blender.
Making popsicles with this mandarin orange smoothie recipe
It also makes great popsicles. I made a big batch of this smoothie and froze the leftovers into fruit pops for my kids. They didn’t even notice we were missing the added sugar of traditional popsicles.
Making the perfect orange pineapple banana spinach smoothie
To make the mandarin orange smoothie, you will want to let it blend for a little longer than normal, to ensure the mandarin oranges are completely pureed.

- 1 cup milk
- 4 mandarin oranges, peeled + sectioned
- 2 cups frozen pineapple
- In the cup of your blender, combine the baby spinach and milk. Puree until smooth.
- Add the mandarin oranges and pineapple and blend again until smooth.
- Enjoy immediately or freeze into popsicles.
