Tropical Green Smoothie


I am a big fan of green smoothies and they regularly feature in my household at breakfast time (at least 4 times a week). This Tropical Green Smoothie is an adaptation of my Coconut, Mango and Banana Smoothie that I shared a few months ago and it is now becoming my 2015 go-to breakfast smoothie.

I always feel nourished and energised after having this smoothie and my children Giselle and Joshua are also big fans. It is also a great way to sneak vegetables in your children's diet if they are fussy eaters as you cannot taste the spinach. Check out my post on the Benefits of Green Smoothies for more info and green smoothie inspiration.

I hope you enjoy my latest recipe.
