Tropical Punch Green Smoothie

So this morning, I was making a smoothie for breakfast, when I realized that I was out of avocados. Oh no! What would give my smoothie that nice creamy texture? I improvised a bit, and when I finished blending it up and took a sip – wow! This smoothie tasted like tropical punch. Not too shabby.

Tropical Punch Green Smoothie
1 c fresh spinach (you could probably sub other leafy greens here, but bitter greens like kale or chard would change the flavor)
1/2 frozen banana
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 kiwi
juice from 1 lime
1/2 c coconut water
1/2 c coconut milk
ice cubes, to taste

Blend everything except for the ice cubes until very smooth. Throw in the ice cubes and blend to desired texture. Slurp with happiness!

Love, peace, and vitamins & minerals,
Sumiko
