Green smoothies have been all over food blogs for the last few months + while I love smoothies, I was nervous to try one. Sure, I saw lots of bloggers say how amazingly delicious (+ not vegetably-tasting) they were, but honestly, I wasn’t buying it. However, a few days ago, after seeing yet another green smoothie recipe online, my curiosity finally got the best of me, + I decided to make one.
Holy moly, I am SO glad I finally made one! All those bloggers were correct – green smoothies ARE scrumptious + as promised, you absolutely cannot taste a hint of vegetable in there. This particular smoothie is a tropical twist on the classic green smoothie + it is amazing! It truly tastes like something that you’d drink while on a Carribbean vacation – it has bright pineapple notes, a delightful creamy coconut flavor + is bursting with freshness. And at under 250 calories per serving + full of healthy vitamins, calcium, + protein, it’s something that you can feel great about enjoying, too.
