I think its time to skip the cereals and lattes and try this refreshing, delicious tasting green smoothie made with fresh baby spinach, pineapples, apples, bananas and coconut milk. By far, it's the best tasting green smoothie ever!
I made this smoothie for myself using only 3 chunks of pineapple, one banana (preferably frozen), and one apple and it was so delicious I had to get everyone to try it. I used coconut milk for the first time and really loved it. When everyone took one sip of my green drink (including my sis Liz), they loved it so much I had to double my batch to make enough for everyone.
Like most smoothies, this one is relatively fast and easy. This green drink leaves you feeling clean, healthy and satisfied for hours. And, if you make them weekly, you'll start to see a glow in your skin.
A great idea to make one as part of your family's breakfast or have one as a snack in the afternoon. It has enough sweetness to satisfy any afternoon cravings. It's even perfect after a workout at the gym. It is an excellent vegan and kid-friendly smoothie!
I think it's a better way to give your family and kids a healthy smoothie to drink that is loaded with nutrients and vitamins before you send them off to work and school.
Like other dark green vegetables, the benefits of eating raw spinach is huge! Spinach is an excellent source of iron, vitamin C and beta-carotene, which are powerful disease-fighting antioxidants, and includes helping fight heart disease and cancer.
And, if you have fussy kids that think drinking ICKY green stuff is a "never happening kind of thing," try pouring this green drink into a non-transparent cup, it always seems to do the trick. Also, the little ones will love this smoothie as well, just pour into their favorite "sippy" cup and call it juice!
Enjoy and have a great day!
