Adventures in Smoothies: Mango Pineapple Coconut

Life in our household has been crazy lately! I feel like we’ve been running from one thing to the next and I’m constantly sprinting to keep up with my deadlines. While I enjoy being busy and productive, I need to work on only saying yes to opportunities that are meaningful or that I enjoy. Matt was in Canada for work earlier this week, so any healthy eating I usually try to maintain went right out the window. We need a bit of a recalibration to increase our healthy eating – so I feel it’s a good thing we stocked up on making our frozen smoothies a few weekends ago!

I loved this smoothie! I used to think I didn’t like mango, but I love the tropical feel the mango, pineapple, and coconut milk give the smoothie. The combo of mango and coconut milk also made the smoothie super creamy. Think tropical milk shake more so than healthy smoothie. Add a handful of spinach to feel healthy and you are set for a busy morning and a (hopefully) productive day!

Recipe

  • 1 banana
  • 1 handful of spinach
