A tropical green smoothie made with pineapple, shredded coconut and bananas, then blended with spinach, light coconut milk and Greek yogurt. High in Vitamin A, B-6, C, Manganese and fiber.
I've been really addicted to green smoothies since I first tried them, some of you may remember the Skinny Green Monster made with spinach bananas and peanut butter... so good! I got my friends and family members hooked in it too! It's amazing how you can't taste the spinach, and every time I have one I try making it different.
This tropical version has been on my mind for some time, I just love the combination of pineapple and coconut, and the sweet bits of shredded coconut give each sip an Island flair. I've also added mango, flax seeds, papaya would be good too! You can leave the yogurt out and add a bit more coconut milk to make it dairy-free. Enjoy!!
