Tropical Green Monster Smoothie

Posted by: admin in: ● November 14, 2010

NEWSFLASH: It is recommended that you (yes, YOU!) eat as much as 9 servings of fruits and vegetables every day!

This smoothie is an easy way to get close to 1/2 of your recommended daily servings!
Note – this is not a “breakfast beverage”. It is a MEAL. It will give you more fiber, nutrients, and organic hydration (a.k.a. water you get from fresh fruits & veggies) than anything you can get pre-made or mixed! It’s an easy way to start your morning right without anything artificial!

1 banana
1/2 cup chopped frozen pineapple
1/2 cup chopped frozen mango
1 kiwi cut into fourths, skin on
1-2 dates soaked in water (optional, adds sweetness)
1 cup coconut milk
2-3 handfuls spinach
add filtered or spring water according to your preference of thickness

Mix all ingredients in a blender, adding water as needed and according to your preference of thickness. This kind of tastes like a pina colada but even better – you won’t even taste the spinach! Made in this proportion, it is about 4 of your 9 servings of fruits/veggies that you need in a day. Enjoy!

Give it a shot and let me know how you like it! YUMaste!

Question. Do you use the “real” coconut milk or the dairy alternative coconut milk?

Real coconut milk… regular or “light”… adds a nice thickness to the smoothie! Enjoy Faith!
