The Best Green Smoothies On The Planet, by Tracy Russell


1 banana, peeled
1/2 cup cubed frozen pineapple
2 cups fresh baby spinach
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup coconut water

Depending on the power of your blender, blend on high for 30 to 60 seconds or untilĀ the texture is thick and smooth. You want to be able to slurp the smoothie through a straw, but not have it so over blended that it's completely liquid. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so be sure you're getting all the vitamins and minerals your body needs.

I whipped up her Banana Pineapple Green Smoothie because I had everything on hand. I figured my kids would like it, too. Watch the video all the way to the end to see what they REALLY thought of it.
