Tropical Fruit Smoothie

Smoothies are a delicious way to consume extra nutrients the easy way — drink them.  Personally, I fix green Smoothies several times a week — especially when I am not hungry enough for a full meal, but want something lighter to eat.

Although this smoothie sounds wonderful, I was a bit disappointed it did not include some greens such as chard, kale or collards!  Most people shy away from green smoothies, but I can assure you that you NEVER tastes the greens — only the fruits you use.  And since the fruit is naturally sweet,  I seldom add sweetener!

I hope you enjoy these smoothies as much as we have!
