Tropical Green Smoothie

I’m new to this whole “green” obsession.  The green drinks, smoothies, Kale chips, etc.  I just can’t fully commit to it.  Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love green veggies but I just can’t get myself to remember to put kale in my smoothies or my zucchini in my brownies.  It just isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when I’m thinking with my sweet tooth.

It's not easy being green!

In my second or third attempt to jump on this green bandwagon, I made Dave and I smoothies for breakfast and finished them off with a pop of green.  And as it turns out, a little green will do the trick.  (It’s so pretty too!)  This one even got the good ol’ Dave Stamp of Approval so we might have to make this one a habit.

Tropical Green Smoothie

My blender tends to get gunked up pretty often so if that happens, take a rubber scraper and try to mix it around.  Add more almond milk if it’s looking too thick.  The best part of it all is that your don’t taste any “green”!  The spinach flavor is completely covered by the sweet and tangy peaches and mango.  This smoothie is sweet, delicious, and packed with nutrients!

You could even be braver than I am and try this recipe with Kale?
