Rural midwest never feels like the tropics. But how would I know? I’ve ever been to the tropics. I have been to California and Florida–once each, mostly inside at conferences. But I have seen real live palm trees! But a girl can dream. And a girl can enjoy the tastes of the tropics without going there, in these times. Blessings indeed. And it is even a blessing to be able to get them frozen when fresh is not available.
Today’s Green Smoothie is straight from the tropics, with a flavor many love, even if they’ve never tasted the real, fresh fruits. Pina Colada–Pineapple and Coconut.
Pina Colada Green Smoothie
- 1 cup pineapple chunks
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup fresh young coconut meat (no they don’t cost near this much locally or through Azure Standard)
- 1/2 banana
- 2 large handfuls baby spinach or other greens
- water kefir (or fresh coconut water or purified water)
- 1 Tbl. fresh ground flax seed (optional)
As always ingredients should all be organic, as much as you are able to find.
Blend till smooth, in a high performance blender. Enjoy!
