Greena Colada Smoothie

Would you believe me if I told you that this smoothie tastes just like a piña colada?

Well, it does. I know it sounds crazy, but you can’t even taste the spinach! You taste coconut and pineapple. It is such a treat and a regular I love to make as a snack after church, for breakfast, or in between lunch and dinner.

The inspiration for this recipe came in the BlendTec cookbook, but it calls for actual coconut meat. I never have that on hand. So, it’s been modified to fit what I usually have in my kitchen.

    Ooh, what I wouldn’t give for one of those fancy BlendTec contraptions — this looks awesome!
