Fresh tropical smoothie

We have been on a healthy eating journey with our family for the last couple years. One of our favorite aspects of healthy eating and nutrition is making smoothies. We are not experts, but we have been making smoothies for a while now and I thought I would share one of my favorites!

Three handfuls of greens (we use a spinach, kale, Swiss chard mix)

One handful of frozen pineapple

One handful frozen mango

One frozen banana (we buy a lot of bananas, and when they start to turn brown, we peel them and freeze them.)

One whole avocado

Juice of one fresh lime

2-3 cups of water (depending on how you like the consistency of your smoothies)

One handful of ice cubes

Blend it all up for about a minute. We have a vita mix that I am still getting used to!

It was so good! It taste like a vacation! The lime juice and banana make it taste very fruity and tropical.

I let my four-year-old drink out of my class. Then disaster ensued…

Good thing this recipe makes very large smoothie. I still had a whole glass full, after this one bit the dust!

Excuse me while I go grab the mop and rags. I hope you enjoy your smoothie!
