Tracy Russell has a new book out, The Best Green Smoothies On The Planet. I whipped up her Banana Pineapple Green Smoothie because I had everything on hand. Plus I figured my kids would like it. Watch the video all the way to the end to see what they REALLY thought of it.
BANANA-PINEAPPLE GREEN SMOOTHIE
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 until 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.
