Green Smoothie...


I am in love with smoothies. Love them, love them, love them.

I've been wanting to incorporate more healthy smoothies into my daily nutrition. It's a great way for me to get in my fruits, green vegetables, and healthy fats!

I find that they fill me up until my next meal.


Did you just see those clouds part and the sun shine through?

I am a snacker. To the extreme... especially in the late evening/early night.

Smoothies for dessert? Why yes, please!

This is a simple green smoothie, with a mild green vegetable: spinach. I like using spinach because once it's blended in with all the other ingredients, you barely notice it.

So, if you're looking for a great, sweet, and filling smoothie, give this one a try...

 Green Smoothie

  • 1 Tablespoon Organic Non-Hydrogenated Extra-Virgin Coconut Oil
  • 1-1/2 Cups Fresh Spinach, Roughly Torn (To blend easily)
  • 1/2 Cup Frozen Pineapple 
  • 1 Banana 
  • 1 Cup Pure Coconut Water
Using a good blender, add the ingredients in the order listed. Blend until all the ingredients are smooth, carefully pushing the ingredients down with a spoon, if needed. Makes 1 (1-1/2 cup) serving.



  1. Sounds like a very good way to start the day!
