In New York, Melvin’s Juice Box is the place to go for green smoothies. In Paris, it’s Bob’s Juice Bar and it’s J.-P., the manager, who makes them.

Preparation time: 5 minutes


  • 1 ripe banana, peeled and frozen
  • 250 ml (9 fl oz/1 cup) mineral water
  • 1 huge handful baby spinach
  • 1 tablespoon fresh herbs (mint or parsley)
  • 100 g ( oz) frozen mango flesh


Place everything in a blender, ending with the mango so you can adjust the quantity to make up 500 ml (17 fl oz/2 cups), and blend. If your blender isn’t powerful enough to handle rock-hard frozen fruit, let the mixture soften for a few minutes before blending.
