Green Smoothie

The “Green and Glowing” smoothie at my local Whole Foods is all the rage at the moment.  Thought I’d pass along my rendition in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.  It serves 1-2.  Enjoy!

1/3 c. dried (unsweetened) coconut
1 c. almond milk
2 handfuls baby spinach (about ½ a blenderful)
1 c. frozen mango
1 c. frozen pineapple
2/3 c. water
1 T. maple syrup (opt.)

Place dried coconut and almond milk in a (microwave-proof) glass. Nuke for 1 minute. Let steep for at least 10 minutes to soften coconut.

Put spinach in the blender first, then add all the remaining ingredients. Puree on high until smooth. Serve.
