Tropical Green Smoothie

17 Jul

I don’t know about you, but I’m HOT! I don’t feel like doing anything, cooking anything, or even eating anything thanks to the near 100 degree temperatures here in PA. Thankfully, I have a blender and some fresh fruits and veggies, so I decided to drink my lunch!

Ingredients in the blender

Tropical Green Smoothie

Makes 1 extra large smoothie or 2 medium smoothies

Ingredients:

1 banana

1 large kale leaf

1/2 ripe mango

2 rings of fresh pineapple

4 frozen strawberries

1-2 TB ground flaxseeds

1/2-1 cup water

Directions:

1. Place all of the solid ingredients in the blender, waiting until the end to add the water. If you like your smoothies thicker, add less. If you like them a bit runnier, add more water. Blend, and enjoy!

You can always use fresh strawberries instead of frozen and just add a couple of ice cubes in to make it colder – I just happened to have some sitting in the freezer. This smoothie has a wonderful tropical taste with a great green color! Plus, you have a serving of veggies and numerous servings of fruit all in one chilled glass! If you are looking to beat the heat in a healthy way, give this tasty smoothie a try!
