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.

Greena Colada Smoothie
Serves: 2
  • ¾ cup coconut milk
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • Juice from half a lime (I've made this without the lime juice and it's still great)
  • 3½ cups frozen pineapple
  • ¼ cup pineapple juice
  • 2 cups spinach
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons agave nectar
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  1. Add ingredients to blender in order listed. Blend until smooth, blending longer if you prefer less coconut texture. Serve and enjoy!

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

      The husband totally scored on that birthday gift! Although it was kind of a gift for both of us…:)
