Sometimes I just really crave a tropical green smoothie filled with pineapple and banana. To be honest, I don’t typically drink smoothie that are loaded with a ton of fruit. I sometimes find that it is just too sweet for me but every once in a while I really crave those flavors. So I usually load it down with lots of greens and collagen so my blood sugar doesn’t go nuts.
This really is a super simple recipe but it is a really refreshing smoothie for this HOT HOT summer days that we are having right now! Seriously….WHY IS IT SO HOT?! It is not even July yet. I am kind of terrified what the rest of the summer is going to feel like.
Anyway, enough about how insanely hot it is. You can really vary this smoothie to your liking and switch out the green or add your favorite plant protein etc. I always say that smoothies are just a template and then you can play around with whatever you are craving or whatever is in season.
