Tropical Green Smoothie Recipe

 Usually I do pretty well with eating healthier during the summer.  This year, however, our summer started off with a two week vacation to an all-inclusive resort and I kind of got used to the standard “two trips to the buffet” for each meal.   I’ve had a hard time getting back into a regular eating routine since we returned home {I’m still craving those chips and guacamole!}, but I thought that this topical green smoothie recipe would be a good way to remind me of Mexico while still providing a healthy dose of nutrients!

This tropical green smoothie provides lots of healthy nutrients while still tasting amazing!
Ingredients
  • ½ cup mango
  • ½ cup sliced pineapple + slice for garnish
  • ½ banana { I like using frozen bananas but you don't have to}
  • ½ cup orange juice {or any other juice, almond milk, soy milk, etc.}
  • large handful of spinach leaves
  • 1 tbsp sprouted chia and flax seeds {optional}
Instructions
  1. Add all solid ingredients to the blender and then top with juice {or other liquid choice}.
  2. Blend until smooth. If it is too thick, add a little water and if you like it thicker, add an ice cube or two.
  3. Garnish with a pineapple slice.

Sit back and enjoy! :)
