Ingredients

  • ¼ of a pineapple peeled, cored, and diced
  • ½ of a papaya peeled, seeded, and diced
  • 1 banana frozen
  • ½ of a cucumber seeded
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • ½ cup canned coconut milk

Instructions

  • Blend everything together until smooth (for smoothest results, blend the spinach and milk until smooth, then add everything else and continue blending).

Notes

Remove cucumber seeds by cutting the cucumber in half lengthwise and scraping out the core with a spoon.
Leave the peel on the cucumber for added insoluble fiber and vitamin K!
Peel banana prior to freezing. I typically throw all of my soon-to-go-bad bananas in the freezer for smoothies and to make banana bread.
