Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup strongly brewed green tea
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk canned, full fat
  • 2 cups spinach fresh or frozen
  • 1 banana green, peeled and frozen
  • 1 grapefruit peeled, frozen
  • 1 cup pineapple chopped, frozen
  • 4-5 pieces of ice
  • 10 grams whey protein isolate

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a blender, starting with liquids and greens, and adding frozen fruit, ice, and protein powder to the top.
  • Blend until ultra creamy. Add extra green tea or water if you like a thinner smoothie.
  • This recipe makes 2 smoothies, because I have found it is easier to blend 2 portions rather than just one in my blender. If you don't have someone to share it with, freeze half and drink it the next day. I find the texture is still great if I let it sit out for about an hour before I drink it, and stir well.
