A tropical green smoothie with banana, mango, coconut, spinach, protein powder and chia seeds. The perfect healthy smoothie for summer!
The weather is starting to heat up here in Virginia. It’s officially time to start packing away my winter wardrobe, busting out the shorts and incorporating more warm weather foods, like overnight oats and smoothies, into my diet.
I’ve grown to like the “green” taste in my smoothies but the recipe I’m sharing today is perfect for those just getting hopping on-board the green smoothie train. It uses frozen banana and mango, both of which are super sweet and do a great job masking just about anything. Of course, it’s still a winner for those of us that have been drinking green smoothies for ages — you can’t really go wrong when combining banana, mango and coconut.
I normally buy and use unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but this week I decided to switch it up and buy the an almond coconut milk blend. It’s perfect for this tropical smoothie but I also love the subtle coconut flavor it adds to my morning iced coffee. I’ve been enjoying it this week while day dreaming about laying on the beach with my toes in the sand. Can you tell I’m ready for our honeymoon?
