My girlfriend Jamie made this for me a few months ago….. and it is exactly how it sounds. It is so good, so fresh and my life actually changed once I tried it! I made this smoothie *almost* every day I was pregnant for the last few months. I felt more energized and overall a bit more healthy. I wanted to make sure I was eating enough green leafy veggies so I could fight any sickness that came my way! I switch it up from spinach to kale to a mixed green blend (which I did today). If you don’t have pineapple, add mango. No mango? Peaches. I had bags of frozen peaches from our trip out to BC and I used them up in no time!
This recipe makes 4 smoothies… because of the avocado and the can of coconut milk. To make the smoothie you can put the other 3 in freezer bags to make your mornings (or night time cravings) easier! Or make the whole batch for a brunch at your place!
1 avocado, peeled, pitted and quartered – don’t throw the pit out!
4 cups peeled and chopped pineapple – I have used mango and peaches before.
4 handfuls baby spinach (kale or mixed greens)
1 can coconut milk
2 limes, halved with the skin off
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
4 quarter size pieces of ginger (I do extra think pieces)
