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!

  1. Hello Saz! Thanks for sharing, I’ll definitely try this. I wonder what color do you have in the Buxom lip plumping gloss in the previous post? 🙂

  2. I’m a coffee kind a girl but I try to get some green smoothies in too. At first I thought they sounded horrible but surprisingly I love them! Going to give your recipe a try!

  3. I thought I was the only one that doesn’t drink coffee, haha! Just grew up not drinking it, but my energy is so lagging in the morning, I try to find other ways to give me a pick-me-up. Will definitely give this recipe a try-sounds great!

  4. Love it!! Thanks! I love smoothies in the morning! I am lately obsessed with Kefir Life Way a probiotic yogurt drink. I love blending that with some green and fruit and Hemp Hearts!! The hemp hearts give me energy and are very high in nutrition!

  5. I too thought green smoothies would be gross but tried one with banana, blueberry, avocado, kale, Greek yogurt, and agave nectar (or truvia) and LOVE IT! I’d like to try more varieties! For whatever reason I’m not a huge fan of veggies so it’s a great way to get in more of those.

  6. Hi Sazan! I made your green smoothie today and I loved the mint! I will definitely be adding it to my breakfast rotation!Thank you!

  8. Lol! I got tricked by the perspective of your camera angle in the first photo and thought it was like a giant smoothie!You can kinda see what I’m talking about if you imagine the table the smoothie is on is actually part of the floor, and the smoothie is right next to the door, being of a comparable size.

  9. Hey found you through YouTube after searching for travel vlogs. It’s amazing that you use coconut milk (I hear about almond or soy milk) and love bananas. Me too! I recently started blogging and it’s refreshing. I have been on my health journey for a little over two years now and smoothies and green juices play an integral role in keeping me on track because of all the results I can see and feel.I do only veggies with lemon or lime in my green juice in the mornings because the nutrients absorb better with no sugar (fructose)in my opinion and some nights I’ll have a smoothie. I’m a tropical fruit kinda girl, I’m from Jamaica. but i have never tried nut butter (hope I can find it) or mint in my smoothies so I’m excited to give it a try. Keep up the good work. Probably see you in a next post. I’m gonna continue reading now…

  10. That looks delicious! Well, I love banana on a smoothie. It’s always my favorite. But it’s overall taste might depend on the blender being used. My personal favorite is the Ninja Mega Kitchen System blender. Top of the line, fully loaded blender with many attachments to make cooking and blending easy. Easy to clean, sturdy, with sharp blades and safety mechanism.
