Green Pina Colada

Hey Cooking readers, it’s Danielle again from Food Confidence with another smoothie recipe for you to try! We’re going green again this week but it’s all good. This smoothie will take you back to your last tropical vacation! It’s smooth and creamy and one of my favorites (your kids will drink it up, too)!

It’s also a great beginner recipe for anyone new to adding greens to their smoothie — you won’t even taste the spinach, despite the green color!



1 cup frozen pineapple
1-2 handfuls baby spinach
4-6 oz unsweetened coconut milk
1 banana (can be frozen)
5-6 sprigs mint


Place the coconut milk, spinach, pineapple, banana and mint in a blender. Blend until smooth.

Zesty Tip:  Fresh mint is easy to grow in your kitchen window sill or even on your deck/porch.  Save lots of money through the year with your own mint patch.  Great for drinks, desserts and even to freshen your breath.
