smoothie 1.0

What’s in that glass, you may ask?  Deliciousness.  You may not believe me because it is green, but I speak only the truth.  There is no ‘green’ taste.  Don’t judge.  Make it once and you’ll be hooked and need your green fix once a day.

It’s not easy being green… but it sure is yummy.

Pineapple-Mango Smoothie

  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or any other dairy/non-dairy milk)
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango chunks (trader joe’s has them)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup frozen pineapple pieces (trader joe’s has these as well)
  • optional: 2T protein powder (soy, rice, etc.), 1T Chia seeds

Put all ingredients in a blender (or magic bullets work great for individual smoothies, ours is put to good use).  I tend to start at the top of the list and work my way down, it weighs down the spinach so you don’t have a leafy explosion ;).

And believe me, you can NOT taste the green.

But be honest… you’ve eaten a Shamrock shake so what do you really have to be scared of.
