((recipe)) Green Pina Colada Smoothie



It's been shockingly frigid here this week - the thermometer keeps saying 50-60º but that wind! OH MY GOSH THE WIND. The sunny skies and green trees are misleading, to say the least. With that said, I've been wishing for warmer weather and making smoothies every morning instead of coffee the past few weeks. Yesterday I thought, "mmmmm. A pina colada sounds awesome." So I rounded up some ingredients and made two different versions yesterday and today. It really just depends on your preferences and what you have on hand. 

GREEN PINA COLADA SMOOTHIE
((makes two servings))

Ingredients:
half a cup of frozen spinach or a full cup of fresh spinach
1 banana, sliced
1 cup or 8 oz of frozen or canned or fresh pineapple *
3 oz or desired amount of coconut milk. **
Splash of water or pineapple juice, to taste
If you haven't used any frozen ingredients, add a little bit of crushed ice

Throw in a blender and serve with an umbrella straw ;)

Enjoy!

*I used canned because I wanted the juice
**I used half of a 6 oz unsweetened can of the legit stuff you buy at asian markets and split between the milk and the fat. If you want more coconut flavor, I'm sure you can use more. 

love.

  7. I made a similar smoothie about a week ago - my little sister was on her honeymoon in hawaii and i couldn't get out of my mind sitting by the beach or pool drinking a pina colada. the smoothie helped me pretend i was there too ;)

  8. Exact amounts of each ingredient is important information to be included on the label of Green supplements, especially for people that are looking for specific things to supplement in their diet.
