Pina “Greena” Colada Smoothie

1 can full-fat coconut milk
2 cups pineapple juice (or crushed pineapple or pineapple chunks)
1 banana (sliced and then frozen is ideal, but not necessary)
1/2 cup shredded coconut/coconut flakes
several ice cubes
handful of baby spinach leaves (about 1/2 cup, packed)

Blend first five ingredients together until smooth. … add your last ingredient—a handful of baby spinach leaves—to your blender/Vitamix/Blendtec container. Blend a bit more on high until spinach is incorporated.

If you want more green smoothie recipes check out the gmoms blog where participants contribute gluten free juices, smoothies and soups everyday in January. Cool huh?

I'd love to be able to contribute . I don't though , this is just the badge participants can put on their blog/website

Here is my green smoothie recipe from the 3-Day green smoothie practicum 2010

  1. Thanks for the raw pancake recipe you wrote on One Mama's Daily Drama blog.
    I am trying to imagine how spinach, mango, and cantaloupe would taste together. I'll just have to try it!


Thanks for reading my blog!
