For those of you joining me in the upcoming No Sugar Challenge, you might already know that you are supposed to drink one, nutrient dense smoothie per day. As you move along in the challenge, you will find that natural foods begin to taste sweeter and sweeter. You find that there really isn’t a need to sweeten everything and you begin to enjoy foods without the “sugar-bomb” effect.

This has a wonderfully light and “airy” flavor. It’s not as filling as some of the other smoothies, but it should carry you through 2 hours until your next meal just fine. This might be a good smoothie to have as a last meal of the day. That way you get some great nutrients, but you won’t have a brick in your belly just before bed. This isn’t high in protein, so pair it with a hardboiled egg white or add some unflavored protein powder and enjoy.

  1. Have you tried this one with Truvia/stevia and water in place of the fruit juice? I’m considering quick-and-easy recipes for my diabetic boyfriend. 🙂

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Charlena – We do not use stevia in this challenge. But if you want it for just day to day meals, then yes, stevia (NOT Truvia) is just fine.

  2. Love Nugget says:

    Is there anything wrong with using Stevia in clean eating?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      LN – Not that I’m aware of. But I haven’t done any research on it either. I don’t care for stevia, so I never use it. However, for the no sugar challenge, we are not allowing stevia. Only fruit.

  3. Michelle of Chellbellz says:

    its mandatory to use quinoa (sp) i had some and it doesn’t suit my fancy, and because of the breast cancer in my family i was told to stay around from tofu (soy)…i have no idea what that correlates too but my doc said to avoid it….you think i can make this without starches?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Michelle – You can always try it with non fat greek yogurt. It won’t be as sweet, but it will give you some protein to balance out the fruit.

    2. FYI…tofu (soy) is high in plant estrogen. If you are at high risk for breast cancer, you should avoid things that increase your estrogen levels.

  4. Michele Gawel says:

    I’m confused because if this is for the no sugar added challenge why so much sugar? I see you didn’t add any but it has a LOT of sugar! Just asking……

    1. Anonymous says:

      This challenge allows for a certain amount of fruit. While fruit is high in sugar, it is a natural sugar and is fine in moderation on this challenge. Keep in mind, this is the only natural sugar you get all day.

  5. Ami Defesche says:

    When does the next NSC start?? I think I’m ready to take the plunge!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Ami – This coming Monday. I will post the challenge on my blog this weekend.

  6. Carolyn Mullin says:

    Good luck to you! I can’t do it because I have low sugar and always need some form of it (usually my fruits) but on occasion I have to have regular orange juice and that has sugar in it. I’m looking forward to your recipes though and wish the best to everyone doing it!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Carolyn – There’s no reason to drink orange juice with added sugar. Simply buy 100% juice. You can still do the challenge with a few minor changes. Just add a bit more fruit as needed. But I recommend discussing it with your doctor first.

  7. Sbroverman says:

    I am very excited for the upcoming no sugar challenge. I gave up sugar for about six months and felt great. Unfortunately I went on a cruise in January and fell back into my old ways. Thank you for providing such delicious and healthy recipes! Looking forward to reading your NSC post over the weekend!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Sb – Yes, It’s shockingly easy to fall into the sugar trap. Good for you for giving it up again!

  8. graciouspantry says:

    Haley – It’s pretty good!

  9. graciouspantry says:

    Tammy – Fantastic! I hope you enjoy it!

  10. graciouspantry says:

    Tammy – Fantastic! I hope you enjoy it!

  11. So the challenge starts the 23rd? I was doing fairly well until we went out of town three weeks ago – I probably ate more junk in six days than I had had in the previous six months and now my eating seems out of control 🙁

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Teresa – That’s not uncommon. Happens to the best of us. Junk food is engineered to do that to us. Yes, it starts this Monday the 23rd.

  12. graciouspantry says:

    ladybradford – If it’s just you, I would cut the recipe in half. Fresh smoothies do not last long at all.

  13. Is there anything to substitute banana? I really don’t care for the flavor of bananas and nearly every smoothie recipe calls for banana!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Kmommaj – You can just leave them out or replace with some other fruit.

  14. Maria Carlson says:

    Do you have any experience with freezing smoothies? I’d like to mix up a batch on Sundays, freeze them individually in travel drink containers, then take ’em to work with me each day at oh-dark-thirty.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Maria – I think you would just end up with popsicles in a cup. But if you keep it mostly fruit, it might work okay.

  15. There’s nothing clean or healthy about protein powder. Get your protein from real food.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jesse – I agree. But the simple truth is, many clean eaters use protein powder anyway. And I like to provide a little something for everyone here.

  16. Made the green tea mango smoothie this morning…YUM!!! Thank you for this recipe:)) Is there another fruit that can replace the mango that is not so expensive?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Julie – The standard sub for mango, believe it or not, it bananas.

  17. wendy carella says:

    I have been on the smoothie/juicing/clean diet for a few weeks now and feel so Mich better and lost weight to boot. Being a vegetarian most of my life I still had no idea how bad i was eating and how many vitamins i was depriving myself of. These smoothies sound grt and some are but being a partial vegan i use either almond or coconut milk ( unsweetened) and yes, I use Truvia or Stevia just depending on which is on sale. I also use a scoop of protein powder and this is what really kicks up the nutrients…..chia seeds and ground flax. I never not add this. I even make my own popsicles now and put chia seeds in them. Nobody notices. Hope u try it, you’ll certainly enjoy.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Wendy – I use chia seeds a lot. Feel free to add them here as well. As for sweeteners, I would never use Truvia. It’s far from clean. I’ve tried pure stevia and I get a bad aftertaste. So that’s why you won’t find it’s use on my blog. Hope you enjoy the smoothie!

  18. this looks delicious but I was wondering is there a good fruit that can substitute pineapple?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Beth – You can substitute any fruit, but I can’t guarantee how it would taste with the green tea.

  19. YUMMY! I need to do this ASAP – antioxidants, fresh, caffeine….AMAZING

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Elaine – I hope you enjoy it! 🙂

  20. Loved this recipe!!!! Thanks!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      BethF – My pleasure! 😀

  21. Can you use frozen mango and or frozen pineapple/ can pineapples with this smoothie? When making the green tea do you add sugar or not?

  22. With this can you use frozen mango and or pineapples/ can pineapples? When making the green tea do you add sugar?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Kel – Sure, you can use frozen or canned as long as there is no sugar added. No, I did not add sugar to the tea.

  23. Cristella says:

    Thank you for sharing. Love this recipe. Do you still have the no sugar challenge?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Cristella – Thanks! And yes I do. Just click the Challenges button up at the top. Enjoy!

  24. I love the thought of no sugar challenge. I am looking to break my old record of 1 week.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jason – You can do it! Shoot for 2 weeks and then a month! You’ll feel amazing!

  25. Hi, I just made this green smoothie this AM, & we all loved it, even with all that spinach! Followed the recipe exactly, but used one cup of frozen mango chunks & added about 1 tsp of agave nectar. Don’t lecture me about that… I am not a devoted clean eater. Just happened to find this recipe on Pinterest & wanted to try it. And YES, I will add a scoop of protein powder next time, or some chia seeds.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Karen – LOL! No worries. I’m happy you enjoyed it! 😀

  26. Hello! Found your website when researching the No Sugar Challenge… what a great resource! Perhaps I missed it, but can you tell me how many servings this smoothie makes? A whole mango, banana and the pineapple seems like a lot more than the allotted 3 pieces of fruit per day…

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jessica – The recipe makes about 3 cups. I would limit your portion to 1 cup for the challenge.

  27. This smoothie tastes amazing, i really recommened it! I didn’t think I would like it but it’s delicious.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Lauren – Fantastic! So glad you enjoyed it!
