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.
