Green Stuff

I was intending to post something else today but I just HAD to share my smoothie this morning:

Look at that pretty green color! This tastes absolutely awesome but it is guaranteed to gross your kids out! I ran out of grape juice for my usual smoothie so I substituted orange juice. Here's my crazy, fly by the seat of your pants recipe:
1 c. orange juice
4-5 chunks of fresh pineapple
Handful of fresh spinach
1/2 banana
Generous splash of coconut milk
Handful of ice cubes

Turn that blender on and enjoy.......
This could be titled: "St. Patrick's Day pina colada" or "Kermit's Hula Juice"

Yucky! But, hey, if it's got coconut milk it can't be that bad...just leave the spinach out before mailing me some please?

Hi Marilyn,
Looks like an interesting Green Smoothie recipe, particularly with the coconut milk. I'll have to give it a try.

I only recently discovered green smoothies. My typical recipe is 2 bananas, 2 handfuls of baby spinach, spoonful of ground flax seeds and 2 cups of water which is blended for 1 -2 mins. The flax seeds are a good source of n-3 fatty acids.

The beauty of making green smoothies is that you can experiment with different ingredients for taste and nutrition.
