Ingredients:
  • 1½ cups frozen pineapple
  • 1 ripe frozen banana
  • 1 cup greens of your choice
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut milk (The kind in the carton, not the can)
  • 2 teaspoons matcha green tea powder
  • Squeeze of fresh lime juice (optional)
Recommended Toppings:
  • Sliced bananas
  • Toasted Coconut
  • Goji berries
  • Chopped almonds
  • Hemp seeds
  • Cacao nibs
Instructions:
  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth. This can be a little tricky because this is a THICK smoothie.
  3. Take your time, and be patient with the blender. If you have a Vitamix, use the plunger to stir as you blend. If you don’t have a Vitamix, you may need to stop the blender a few times and stir things with a spatula.
  4. Pour the smoothie out into a bowl and add toppings of your choice.
Enjoy and stay cool!
