Tropical Green Smoothie

Tropical Green Smoothie

I am a huge fan of healthy green and nutrient filled smoothies. I have been doing smoothie for my 20 month old, and i usually put some kind of green in there, or an avocado or bunch of carrots and chia seeds and then some frozen fruit.  She loves them. So when i came across this smoothie i had to try it out.  It is delicious, you can;t even taste the spinach at all.

There are a few alternatives you can do here, instead of the spinach you can use kale, instead of almond milk you could use coconut water, or whole milk.  Also instead of yogurt you could just use more milk.  I also put chia seeds in all my smoothies they are filled with nutrients and so good for you.  Especially if you don’t eat fish a lot.  And now with the Pacific Ocean totally contaminated with radiation for over 2 years and still running i have cut down on our fish intake.  It is really sad but i don’t trust the fish from the pacific ocean anymore, so we just eat tons of chia seeds around our house.

This recipe is part of the monthly Secret Recipe Club “assignment!” Every month you get a name of a blog and you need to choose ANY recipe from that blog and then blog about that recipe by a date. It’s a secret because the blog owner does not know you are doing this until the reveal date.

My secret blog this month was It’s Good to Be the Cook, which is written by Beth, who lives in a suburb outside Philadelphia. She has a great food blog you have to check it out -It’s Good to be the Cook.

    This smoothie sounds so tasty! I love how it’s green but not *too* green, if you know what I mean. I love the tropical flavors going on in there.

    I love smoothies! I usually just throw some frozen fruit, yogurt, and juice together – no recipes. If I have spinach, I throw some in, but not usually enough to actually turn the smoothie green. Yours is a really pretty green, making me think I need to use more spinach. And get more chia seeds.

    I use a base of almond milk and whey protein
    powder, then throw in half a frozen banana,
    a cup of frozen organic berry mix and some
    chia seeds. Voila!

    I think it’s great that you are introducing a
    green drink to your little girl at this age. She
    won’t have the aversion to this color drink like
    a lot of people do! (I got over that a long time
    ago, but my kids are teens and not big fans of
    the green…..)

    Looking forward to trying this. Thank you!

      Suzanne,

      That sounds fantastic. I throw chia seeds in almost everything now. They are so good for you. I need to figure out a good smoothie with beets. So far i haven’t found anything good yet.
