best green smoothie

(edits highlighted in orange)

I just made the most perfect green smoothie combination today! I was getting burnt out on bananas and berries.
Here's what I added:
  • 2 navel oranges peeled
    (Found that tangelos are particularly yummy and SO juicy!)
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1/4 cup organic unsweetened coconut
  • Better yet...A splash of coconut milk! YUMMY and not gritty like the dried coconut flakes!
  • a bit of organic agave nectar
  • approx. 1/2 cup filtered water
  • 6-8 ice cubes
Blend all of the above ingredients very well before adding greens.
Add to mixture:
  • approx. 4 cups organic baby spinach
Blend, blend, chunky smoothies here!
    I gave My Girl a bit today, and she asked for MORE! So yummy!

    Good idea! It's easy to get burned out on berries and bananas in smoothies. I've started making smoothies with melon (cantaloupe or honeydew) and pineapple. It's so refreshing!
