Tropical Green Smoothie
Recipe type: Reference: Tropical Green Smoothie
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 2 cups leafy greens (spinach/romaine/kale/etc.)
  • 1 pear, cut into chunks
  • Handful of pineapple
  • 5 mint leaves
  • 1 banana (frozen in chunks, or fresh)
  • ½ lemon
  1. Add liquid and greens to blend first – really well!
  2. Next, add pear, pineapple and mint and blend.
  3. Last, add banana and lemon and blend. Frozen banana will give you more of a “smoothie” consistency.
Benefits: This smoothie has fruit and veggie fiber that will keep you feeling full, so you aren’t snacking on packaged junk. The coconut water helps to prevent dehydration, which manifests as hunger and typically causes extra calorie consumption.
