Summer Grilled Mexican Street Corn Fettuccine
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.
Both are good and if I was making this for breakfast I would probably go with the greek yogurt, but any other time of the day I would choose the 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!
Wow, this looks so tasty, that my mouth is watering
Thank you Ivory!
This sounds amazing! What kind of coconut milk do you use (canned or from the dairy section)?
I love your smoothie recipes (this one included!!) It’s always a nice change from my usual combinations 🙂 Keep them coming!!
Thank you so much Hannah! I am so glad you like this!
what a neat combination. I would never have thought of salt ? great pics.
Thank you Anna! It seems weird but I hope you’ll like it!
Spinach into a smoothie? This is definitely a wild idea worth trying!
Added greens are always a good idea! lol! I hope you try it and love it, thanks Edi!
Looks and sounds so good, just as all your other recipes.
How come you at salt to a smoothie? I never tried that, is it for taste for this specific smoothie only?
This sounds so good! All my favorite flavors together!
This is one of the best sounding smoothies ever. I love everything you’ve got in here, and I’m going to have to try it!
Thank you, Marcle! It is so good!
My absolute favorite is pina colada, but I never thought about adding strawberry! And Greek yogurt and spinach is sheer genius! I can’t wait to try this. Thanks for sharing on Marvelous Mondays!
Thank you, Jenifer!
Vanilla coconut ice cream in this smoothie?? Yes pah-lease!! Sounds delish girl!
Haha! Thank you, Jocelyn! The coconut ice cream was killer!
I really need to get myself a blender or nutri bullet. Every time you post another recipe I want a smoothie so bad and this one sounds great. I love Strawberry!!!
Thank you so much!
