One of the healthiest additions to your diet is leafy green vegetables. In this video, I show the most amazingly talented and hilarious Judy Greer how to make a tropical, spicy, metabolism-boosting smoothie that is not only health-promoting, but also delicious, easy, and fun…especially when you have Judy in the kitchen…
See below for the recipe…on this episode of Reluctantly Healthy…
Tropical Greens Delight from The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Gluten-Free Vegan Cooking
Yield: 2 1/2 cups
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Serving Size: 1 1/2 cups
1 cup frozen mango chunks
1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
1 1/2 unsweetened coconut water
1 cup leafy greens (baby spinach, kale, collard greens, etc.)
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional)
1. In a blender, place mango chunks, pineapple chunks, coconut water, leafy greens, lime juice, and cayenne pepper, and blend for 30-60 seconds or until smooth.
2. Evenly divide mixture between 2 glasses and serve immediately.
Variation: If you prefer a less-spicy version, you can reduce or omit the cayenne pepper. You can also replace the mango with papaya. If you can’t find frozen fruit, use the same amount of fresh fruit and add 1 cup ice cubes.
