Let’s call it Greena Colada…I’m in a mood of name calling today…And talking…Go ahead. Get addicted. Guilt-free. Extremely healthy and addictively delicious. If you are tired of regular blah hard core green smoothie, try this one for a change. I promise you won’t taste kale. It’s yummy! Very springy, summery and tropical.

I add spinach to smoothies, salads, frittatas, meats, soups etc. It’s so good for you especially raw.
This recipe has been inspired by the recent popularity of juicing and by my neighbours. In an attempt to lose my belly fat I talked to my neighbour who trains NHL players and his wife who looks amazing. Among couple suggestions he gave me was juicing particularly vegetable juicing. Now, anybody who knows me knows I’m against juices particularly fruit ones. Homemade are a little bit better than store-bought ones but not by much.
