Stay Lean, Drink your Greens

 Recently green smoothies have become the new craze around the Internet and for goon reason too. Green smoothies are a great way for people who have a hard time getting their daily dose of greens in to get those added nutrients their bodies crave! Spinach especially is a great source of iron and antioxidants! But, adding spinach to a smoothie is an awesome way to add nutrients with virtually no "spinachy" taste!

But, green isn't always the most appealing of colors to sip on.
And sometimes they don't always taste too great either.

I have found the green smoothies to end all green smoothies.
And I mean it.  
1 LARGE handful of baby spinach leaves
1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks
1/2 cup frozen mango chunks
1 frozen banana (non frozen works too)
1 cup coconut water

Combine all in your blender and blend, blend, blend!
To get the blender going start by adding 1/2 cup coconut water to get your blender going.

Serving Size 1 smoothie

Have a great day everyone!
