Tropical Green Smoothie Recipe

While you are kicking back and enjoying the heat of summer, here is a great tropical green smoothie to have to take you away to the islands…or if you are lucky, to savor your island time while you are there….

Smoothies are a great way to add a lot of nutrients in one dose, have that glass of water you need and give you a flavor boost when you want more than a glass of water. This one give you two fruits and cleansing vegetables.

Enjoy!  This will keep you going for hours, but feel free to add a scoop of high quality protein powder, if you wish.

Can you hear those steel drums?
