I 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.
- 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
- 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?
