Raw Food Friday #4 Green Smoothie!

I had this fantastically fancy recipe to share for Raw Food Friday this week but I'm just not up to it.  I'm really focusing on what I eat lately and simple just feels better.

I found so many awesome recipes over at Green Thickies  (also on my sidebar) so I thought I'd share one today.  One of my favorite posts so far is 8 Best Vegan Blogs.  I'm not vegan but these bloggers have some amazing recipes!

Coconut Pineapple Spinach Smoothie
adapted from Green Thickies

source
Ingredients
1 Cup cold Water

3 Cups Pineapple (1 medium pineapple chopped)

½ Cup shredded Coconut (You could use coconut milk, creamed coconut or coconut meat)

1 Cup Spinach, tightly packed or 2 cups loosely packed. (Or other mild greens)

Instructions

Blend the ingredients in the order listed. Add more water if required to thin it out. Substitute any of the ingredients for whatever you already have. If your smoothie is too warm, you can cool it down in the fridge.

  11. I'll be honest, I'm afraid of the spinach. Can you taste it or does the pineapple overtake the taste? Thanks for sharing at the Our Favorite Things Link Party.
