Good Morning Green Smoothie

"A refreshing blend of tropical flavors with a beautiful green hue, this smoothie is the perfect healthy start to your morning. Adjust fruit to taste, I seem to whittle down the fruit each time I make it as I come to love the green flavor more and more."

    Very good! This is my first attempt at a green smoothie and I'm glad I tried this recipe. The only change I made was to use coconut water in place of plain water. Thanks!

    Excellent! This is the perfect, healthy way to start a day. It is simple to make and tastes wonderful. Even though the drink is visibly green, spinach is not the dominate taste. I really tasted the banana (I used two but may use just one next time) and pineapple. Perfect consistency. Made for Pick A Chef 2012. Thank you!

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

As my name suggests, I am a part-time hobbit, escaping to my quiet life in the Shire whenever I can. In reality, I am a busy student who uses cooking as therapy. I am severely gluten intolerant and mildly dairy intolerant, so most of the recipes I post/comment on will be compatible with my dietary restrictions. Still, I love to eat, and have learned that you don't have to sacrifice flavor and personality when you go gluten and dairy free. I tend to like recipes that are either real homey comfort food, or transport me to the places I've travelled to, or would like to someday visit. I believe in eating organic, ethically raised meat and vegetables. I like to stay as close to nature as possible, eating mostly whole foods.
