We have been having the most wonderful weather here. The high today was PLUS 11C! I struck it big at the grocery store on Tuesday with a plethora of oranges, bananas and pineapple, as well as some nice celery. Nice weather + tropical fruit = experiment with a new smoothie!
Greenya Colada (sometimes you just have to wing it when naming these concoctions 🙂
1/2 pineapple, remove peel and chopped into chunks
4 organic oranges, peeled
1 or 2 organic bananas, depending on how sweet your pineapple is
1/3 cup of dried organic coconut milk powder
I also added 4 medjool dates, as my pineapple was on the tart side
2 to 4 stalks of celery, depending on how green you want this, I went with four
1/2 to 1 tsp of organic vanilla powder or extract
1/2 to 1 cup of water
Toss in blender and blend away.
This was quite filling and makes quite a bit, so you may have to scale back on the proportions. It was a nice treat on a lovely day like today.
I hope you are enjoying 2012 so far. With temperatures like this, it looks like it is shaping up to a great one!!
