Afternoon Pick Me Up Green Smoothie

One of my very favorite green fruit and veggie combos is full of flavor and vitamins. Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Iron, Potassium and Antioxidants will leave you feeling great. I whipped this up for myself Sunday afternoon after a wedding weekend with college friends in Mobile, Alabama, and it was a huge help. The flavor profile is opposite of our morning almond milk, berry and banana smoothie. This combination is bright and refreshing; the closer we get to spring and summer the more I will be drinking this green blend.  All of the ingredients can be adjusted according to taste, but here are measurements to get you started. Give it a shot!

Afternoon Pick Me Up Green Smoothie:

1/2 c. Frozen Pineapple

1 Tbsp. Fresh Cilantro

2 c. Raw Spinach

Juice of 1/2 Lemon

1 c. Coconut Water

1 Tbsp. Chia Seeds

Optional but recommended – 3 Slices of Jarred Jalapeno

(you could use a tiny bit of a fresh jalapeno instead)

Enjoy!!
