Delicious Green Smoothie Recipe (EASY)
I’m constantly trying to stay on my healthy game but sometimes it’s hard when you live for delicious food. Living in LA has definetly helped me stay on track – especially now since I have a good-sized kitchen I can play in. One way I’ve consistently been getting in my daily vitamins is with a green smoothie in the morning. When Stevie and I recently visited Rancho Pescadero (remember?) , I had the most delicious green smoothie every morning. It came straight from their garden and I could taste all of the delicious fruits and veggies. I’ve been on the hunt ever since trying to find a similar DIY at home recipe.
I couldn’t remember the exact recipe from the hotel, but I found one online that sounds similar. I whipped one up in my kitchen the other morning and it tasted great. Best of all, it gave me energy. I don’t drink coffee so you know that’s a big deal for me. ha! Shared the recipe is below.
-1.5 cups tropical fruit (mango, banana, pineapple…I like banana!)
-1 cup coconut milk
-1 cup coconut water
-Juice of 1 lime (I like to leave this out, but personal preference)
-2 cups spinach or other leafy greens (you can’t taste them, I promise!)
-1 cup mint leaves (remove the stems. if you want it a little less minty, just do a half cup!)
-Handful of ice or more (use more if your fruit is fresh!)
-Optional: add in a nut butter or chia seeds for a healthy fat 🙂
-Place all ingredients in a blender at high speed and mix until smooth. I love my Vitamix – it gets the job done. Enjoy!
