Tropical Green Smoothie

So it is that great time of the year to eat a lot of great fruits. I love making them into smoothies. If you add some greens and some other healthy ingredients you have a great meal or snack. There are so many yummy smoothie recipes. This is one that I came up with today when I was making my breakfast. It ended up being pretty thick you may need a spoon. Isn't it wonderful to get so much nutrition in one glass. A handful of nuts would be a great addition to the meal too.  It is a great way to start your day.  "Seize the day"!


1 C coconut milk or almond milk
1 handful of washed spinach
1/2 C frozen or fresh mangoes
1 frozen banana
1/4 C frozen or fresh pineapple
1/4 C old fashioned oatmeal
1 T chia
1 T flax seed

Directions Serves 1 to 2

1. Pour all the ingredients in the blender and let it whirl until all combined. Drink right away.  Enjoy

*For additional sweetness add a little honey. If you want it not as thick increase the liquid.
