This smoothie is great for anyone who enjoys tropical drinks and would like to give them a healthy twist.
Personally I find most tropical drinks overly sweet and found the crisp tartness added by the greens to be pleasant and enjoyable.
Ingredients and Directions
Here are your beginning ingredients:
- 4 tbsp shredded coconut
- 1 large bowl of frozen mango and pineapple
- 1 banana
- 2 cups shredded kale
- 1 scoop Incredible Greens
- Your plant milk of choice
Put these ingredients into the top of your blender. It’ll look like this:
Fill to the top with the plant milk of your choice, and then blend on high speed until completely liquified.
When you’re finished it will have a vibrant green color, and should taste delicious.
The addition of Kale makes the drink a little bitter, but I think it makes the drink refreshing, and the taste of the pineapple, coconut, mango and banana ensures it has that distinct tropical flavor.
The addition of Incredible Greens ensures additional nutrients, and I can definitely taste it in the drink. It has a distinct after taste in smoothies that I enjoy, but might take a little getting used to for people new to green drinks.
This smoothie has the following health benefits:
- Lots of healthy plant fats
- lots of vitamin C
- lots of iron, calcium, and some protein
- a diverse array of phytonutrients from 43 different plant foods
- Raw and vegan
- 5+ servings of vegetables in one 8 ounce drink.
I made this yesterday and enjoyed a nice sustained energy boost throughout the day.
