As promised, another variation on the green smoothie theme. Living without a blender last month, I came home with quite a craving for green smoothies. I like mine very smooth, no bits of green leaves getting caught between the teeth and such. This tropical version is a refreshing cold drink that tastes a bit like a pina colada, with a creamy silkiness from the coconut milk. It is super-easy one to make – all the ingredients can be easily found at your local Trader Joe’s.
- 1/4 cup frozen mango chunks
- 1/4 cup frozen pineapple pieces
- 1 cup fresh baby spinach leaves
- 1/2 cup light coconut milk
- 1/2 cup water
Combine ingredients in a high-power blender and blend on high speed until you get a homogeneous light green liquid without any visible pieces of spinach (about 3 min).
Drink and feel energized! Makes enough for 2 servings.
