Honestly, it's making me crave going back to the Caribbean. *Sighs inwardly* Then remembers that I need to write THAT travel post too! But incase you missed these and need to satisfy some wanderlust - You're welcome. Here is our Venice trip, our trip to the Silos, and to Charleston!
Will it ever stop raining??? It's literally been a down pour since Monday! I'm so worried about my poor little sprouts outside! I went out this morning to discover that our garden box ( which doesn't have a bottom) was flooded all around my romaine! So I dug a hole and created a "drain" . Ill be so upset if they don't make it!
Who else is trying their hand at gardening this year??? 🙋🏻♀️🌱💚
Why You Are Going To LOVE This Tropical Green Smoothie Recipe
✔️ Great Way to Get Your Greens In - drink your leafy greens instead of eating them! And NOT taste it!
✔️ Gets things MOVING - There is a lot of fiber which means a boost for your digestive system
✔️ Make Ahead! - You can easily make these smoothies ahead by throwing all the ingredients (minus the liquid) into a freezer-safe baggie then blending with your liquid of choice (coconut water, water, nut milk, juice, etc)
What You Will Need
This is my go-to smoothie! It's easy and simple to make and a way to get more spinach in your system! It's also kid friendly as you can't taste the spinach!
- frozen pineapple chunks - this amazing tropical frozen fruit adds extra Vitamin C and a natural immunity boost!
- frozen banana in slices - for that natural creamy sweetness
- handfuls of fresh spinach - full of antioxidants and GREAT for the brain!
- lime juice - just a spritz of brightness
- coconut water - HELLO natural electrolytes!
- chia seeds - extra fiber and protein
- unsweetened coconut shreds - extra fiber and a taste booster!
- Protein Powder - I use a really clean protein powder currently. Meaning full of ingredients I can pronounce! The vanilla is my FAVORITE!
- Collagen - if you use the protein powder above in the link (collagen is already in there!) but use your favorite collagen here for extra joint health and skin-glow for DAYS.
- Flax Seeds - for extra healthy fat and protein
- Kale - if this dark leafy green is more of your thing, then simple swap or mix in with the spinach!
- Ginger - fresh ginger is such a BOP in a smoothie. I love adding a small piece for a little zing and it adds a lot of anti-inflammatory benefits as well as it's great on a sensitive stomach.
- Peanut Butter - To make this a true meal replacement smoothie, I add 1 tablespoon of natural peanut butter plus protein and it's SO GOOD & FILLING.
Tropical Green Smoothie Variations
I HATE BANANAS!!!! - no biggie! Simply replace the banana with ¼ of an avocado with 1 date to substitute sweetness. Or use ½ cup of frozen mango to achieve a similar level of creaminess
Not a fan of coconut water? - Again, NO BIGGIE! Use 1:1 replacement of regular water, orange juice, almond milk, coconut milk, regular milk,etc. You're the boss applesauce!
