Don’t we all love green smoothies? I know I do! Brian on the other hand, not so much. I make them almost everyday, and everyday he drinks them reluctantly. We all know they are good for us, if made with mostly the right ratios of greens to fruits and protein. It’s not that he hates them by any means. It’s not that bad, he says. It’s just not his favorite. I don’t mind them at all, in fact, I love the taste. Some more than others of course, but I enjoy it. Tropical Green Smoothie is a win for my morning!
I make them the night before, just so we can wake up and have no excuses. You certainly don’t need to make them the night before, that’s just how I roll. Plus, Brian leaves for work earlier than I am ready to be up and making smoothies, so yeah the night before works for us. This one is tropical and sweet from the pineapple, protein from the almond milk and hemp seeds, and greens from the spinach. It reminds me a pina colada with the pineapple, think Tropical Green Smoothie yum!
2 cups almond milk
2 cups spinach
2 cups pineapple, chopped, I use fresh
1 banana, peeled
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1/2 fresh lemon, juiced
1. Place all of the ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
Use frozen fruit for thicker consistency.
