Tropical Green Smoothies

Servings: 2

Ingredients

  • 16 oz crushed ice
  • 2 oranges, peeled
  • 2 cups spinach, pressed fairly full
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen pineapple chunks
  • 2 med frozen bananas*
  • 2 scoops collagen peptides**
  • 1-2 T chia seeds
  • 2 T coconut oil or MCT oil

Instructions

  • Using a high speed blender, blend together all ingredients, except coconut oil, until smooth. Then, slowly pour in melted coconut oil with the blender running, and blend until light. 

Notes

* I keep a bag of frozen banana slices in my freezer for smoothies. I cut the banana into 1/2 inch slices before freezing.
**Vital Proteins is my preferred brand. You can use VP collagen peptides in the blue canister or Beauty Collagen to add additional flavor and benefits.
