This is the smoothie that will make those green smoothie naysayers shut their skeptical mouths. I recommend using spinach, as to me it is the most unobtrusive the greens, but you can use whatever you have on hand of course.
Tropical Breeze Green Smoothie
2 cups liquid of your choice. I use water.
1/2 cup raw oats
1 cup frozen chopped spinach or 2-3 cups fresh
2 tablespoons Chia Seeds
2 tablespoons Coconut oil
1 cup Frozen pineapple
1 large or 2 Small bananas
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract
Dash of Cinnamon
Add half of the liquid and the oats to your blender. Blend on high until smooth.
Add greens to the blender. Blend on high - 30 seconds.
Add the rest of your ingredients and blend on high until smooth.
Add ice and blend if you'd like the drink colder or slushier.
Garnish with a lemon or a lime.
Close eyes. Wish yourself away to a tropical island and forget about all of the things now sitting in your sink to be washed.
