I am declaring today Smoothie Sunday.
Because honestly smoothies are the laziest drink/snack/breakfast around.
Truthfully, I never thought I would post a smoothie recipe because when I make smoothies, there is no recipe. Throw in a little of this, a little of that, oh and maybe some of that, in the blender and blend, blend, blend.
But since my cousin Maggie requested a new smoothie recipe I wrote one down with pencil and paper.
I figured I could come up with something good seeing as all I want to consume these days is mass amounts of fruit. I am putting them in every single dish I make.
And maybe stock up on pineapple, all berries, nectarines, peaches, mangos and melons.
Oh and avocados.
So this smoothie is like a pina colada loaded with tons and tons of strawberries, a frozen banana for creaminess and sweet coconut to tie it all together. For some protein I added some greek yogurt, but the second time I made them I added vanilla coconut ice cream.
Ah huh, vanilla coconut ice cream.
Then it is kind of closer to a milkshake.
Which is just as awesome since it is a pretty healthy milkshake and in my brain totally qualifies as a perfectly wholesome afternoon snack. Okay, fine maybe I made it for breakfast too.
Oh and I even added some spinach to this guy.
Granted not a whole lot since I did not want some gross murky looking smoothie, but hey a little spinach is still spinach. You can add more than I did if you want, but be warned the color will not stay pink.
Or you can leave the spinach out all together, but I promise, you can’t taste it.
Yeah for lazy Smoothie Sunday!
