Smoothies are regulars around here for breakfast, with lunch, or as an afternoon snack. Scott and I were thrilled when my parents gave us a Vitamix for Christmas this past year and it seems I can throw just about anything in there and it comes out velvety smooth.
I’ve become a big fan of throwing extra veggies in, not so much because we don’t all like eating vegetables, but it’s just a really easy way to work a few extra veggies into our diet. I’ve found I really like carrots with berry smoothies and spinach with smoothies that have some pineapple and/or banana.
The flavor of this green smoothie reminds me so much of a piña colada, I just couldn’t help the cheeky name. It takes about 60 seconds to make, tastes delicious, and is super good for you. Greeña colada, anyone?
