Tropical Smoothie

IMG_0607_smallI have been told by the Bear that I have some silent readers out there who are requesting smoothie recipes.  (You know who you are!)  Since I’m leaving for Las Vegas today, I thought this smoothie recipe would be just the thing for getting me into the mini-cation spirit. Not that it takes a lot, as I’m always ready for a vacation. But I could use a few sugary drinks poolside!


Even if you are not going on a mini-cation anytime soon, this smoothie will make you feel like you are in the tropics.  It is also perfect for morning bird watching in the backyard.

Tropical Smoothie
Prep time: 
Total time: 

Serves: 1

  • 1 cup spinach
  • ⅓ cup frozen mango
  • ⅓ cup frozen pineapple
  • ½ banana
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon shredded coconut
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

  1. Combine all ingredients into a blender and pulse until smooth


Isn’t my blender totally cute and retro!  I finally decided to buy a big girl blender after my mini blender wasn’t cutting it anymore.


The pineapple and mango completely hide the spinach flavor and the coconut kicks it up a notch.  I could go on about this flavor combination.  It was so delicious that I was a little sad when I got to the bottom of the glass.


After work I’m heading to Sin City with the girls! I could not be more excited to enjoy the sun, food, and drinks! Which leads me to my next question…

What are your favorite low-calorie poolside drinks?
