Tropical Green Smoothie

This green smoothie doesn't taste green at all. Pineapple, mango, and banana make this sweet as can be. So pack some nutrition into your smoothie without it being gross!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 1 -2

What you'll need:

  • 1-2 frozen bananas (or fresh)
  • 1 cup frozen mango (or fresh)
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple (or fresh)
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups water/coconut water
  • 1-2 handfuls mixed greens (I used "power greens" - chard, kale, spinach)
  • 1 tbsp ground flax/chia (whichever you have)
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric
  • (optional) 1-2 pitted dates (for more sweetness)
  • Ice if needed

What you'll do:

  1. Add fruit and water (start with 1 1/2 cups and add more if needed) to high-speed blender (like a Vitamix). Let sit while you add the rest of the ingredients so the frozen fruit will thaw a little.
  2. Blend until smooth, adding water as needed to blend or for thickness preference.
  3. Enjoy slowly. Best when fresh, but leftovers can be stored covered in the fridge for 48 hours.
