Thirsty Thursdays: Green Tropical Smoothie

2015/01/img_2140-0.jpg It's hard for me to proclaim any smoothie as my favorite, since they are a favorite breakfast of mine and each one I make tastes so different and so uniquely different making the morning a happy surprise. But, I might just be caught saying that this smoothie is at the top of my favorites list, in fact, it might just sit right smack on top of the list. It's seriously so good. It's creamy from the banana, but not thick. It's sweet from the fruit and honey, but not overly sweet. And, the coconut oil adds such a nice depth, giving it a tropical flavor, which adds some sense of warmth to a winter morning. I think this would also taste yummy with a squeeze of lime and with mangos or pineapple instead of pear.2015/01/img_2139.jpg Green Tropical Smoothie 2 large handfuls of spinach leaves 2 ripe bananas 1 pear, cut into large chunks small piece (about 1 inch) of ginger, peeled 2 spoonfuls of hemp hearts glob of honey large spoonful of coconut oil several ice cubes 1 1/2 cups of unsweetened almond milk

Blend all together. 2015/01/img_2143.jpg This was the first smoothie Jack drank in one sitting (he usually puts half of it in the refrigerator for later on the day). Not only did he drink it in one sitting, he drank it in about 1 minute and then drank some of mine!

Enjoy! And, bottoms up!
